The successive academic results of JNVs in public examinations conducted by CBSE and the records about placement of students after passing out from the Vidyalayas are a clear pointer that the Samiti is moving in the right direction. The results of Class X and XII examinations of JNVs have been consistently better than the overall CBSE national averages.
Medium Of Instruction
In view of the (act that most of the students admitted were taught earlier through the medium of the mother-tongue/regional language, instruction is provided through the same medium upto Class VIII during which time intensive teaching of Hindi & English both as language subjects and co-media are undertaken through skilful use of the media and modern techniques of teaching languages, so that switch over to Hindi/English after Class VII or VIII presents no difficulty. Thereafter the common medium in all Navodaya Vidyalayas is Hindi for Social Studies and Humanities and English for Mathematics and Science.
Three Language Formula
The Scheme of Navodaya Vidyalayas provides for implementation of the Three Language Formula.The third language taught in Hindi speaking districts is linked with the migration of Students. In the Hindi speaking districts, the third language taught in a Navodaya Vidyalaya is the language of the 30% students migrating to that Vidyalaya from non-Hindi regions. This language is compulsory for all. In the non-Hindi regions, Navodaya Vidyalayas follow the normal Three Language Formula i.e. regional language, Hindi and English. In our school "TAMIL" is the third language.
Mobility of students across the country is a commendable step in which the opportunity is afforded to students at an impressionable age , to live and learn along with their peers from states other than their own and to get acquainted with and motivated by, experiences of national integration in action.
To promote national integration through migration policy is a unique system of Navodaya Vidyalayas 30% students of class IX of a Hindi speaking state is migrated for one year to a JNV of Non-Hindi speaking state and vice versa. Under this scheme nearly 21 students of class IX of this Vidyalaya are migrated to JNV Pandushary every year and nearly the same number of students are going to Vidyalaya from Panuchary. Special care has been provided to this migrated students in all aspects so that they should feel a homely atmosphere in the migrated school.
Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation
Education is a unique investment and accountability is possible only through a well planned mechanism of assessment with reference to its objectives. Examination in 'its traditional sense has failed to achieve the objectives of education. Introduction of the Scheme of Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation is, therefore, the only alternative to de-emphasis the system of external examinations. The Scheme has been introduced effectively in all the JNVs since 1989-90 with the following objectives :
To make evaluation an integral part of teaching learning process.
To use evaluation for improvement of students achievement and teaching learning strategies on the basis of regular diagnosis followed by remedial instructions.
To make a sound judgment and to plan timely strategies on the basis of regular diagnosis followed by the remedial instructions.
To facilitate sound judgment and to take timely decisions about the learner, learning process and the learning environment.
To maintain desired standard for performance using evaluation as a quality control device.
To provide scope for self-evaluation by teachers and students. Special training has been provided to the Principals and teachers to ensure maintenance of CCE records in proper order.
