General academic courses will contain grading material such as tests, essays, speeches, research papers as they pertain to their respective subject.
For our Christian Ministry courses, we evaluate student progress based on Continuous Assessment Tests (CATs) which evaluate their proficiency, on a monthly basis, throughout the course. This offers students more support, guidance, and opportunities to improve during the class as well as providing a sense of inclusiveness and higher-learning standards. It is meant to give students the opportunity to demonstrate their personal knowledge, insight, and wisdom towards the topics presented.
Students will be given formative assessments that include:
Written: problem-solving, long/short answer, multiple-choice
Oral: speaking with and without preparation
Practical: Engagment with class and practicum, peer feedback exercises
By the final assessment at the end of the course, the student will have the tools needed to be effective leaders in both the church and community.
