At Tithonus, students are evaluated on the basis of their willingness to learn and the efforts they make to reach their goals. Based on a comprehensive evaluation system, evaluation in the school is a combined effort on the part of the teachers, the parents and the students to better understand the learning experiences for each student. Processes of learning and the relationships that students create while learning are accorded high significance. Students are usually not compared with each other. Alternatively, they are gently guided to understand the inherent strengths, virtues and potential that they possess within themselves. The objective is to recognize the progress that each child makes in their own learning curve. Like the myriad influences of the school, evaluation at Tithonus is also a source of inspiration and learning, and not a time for judgment and fear.

Through the year we follow the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system for all classes, as prescribed by CBSE. Our assessment systems are designed to test understanding and not simply the ability to reproduce facts. We have a two term academic year where the report card is handed out at the end of each term on the day of Parent Teacher Interaction. First Term and final examinations will be held in the month of September and March respectively every year. It is must for all students to appear in both Major examinations, promotion to the higher classes will be depending upon minimum marks criteria laid down by the school. If a student fails to attempt any of the major examination in whole or part due to any reason he may not be considered fit for promotion.

Term I (Apr–Sep): FA1 (10%) + FA2 (10%) + SAI (30%) =50%
Term II (Oct–Mar): FA3 (10%) + FA4 (10%) + SAII (30%) = 50%

Promotion is granted on the basis of whole year's performance of the pupil hence the importance of regularity in attendance and work is must.
Pupil, absent from an examination, for any reason, will not be re-examined. Absence from one or more subjects involves loss of marks and excludes the pupil from securing a rank.
Willful breach of any of the regulation pertaining to the conduct of examination is punishable with expulsion from the examination or if subsequently discovered with cancellation of the papers.
A pupil who fares poorly throughout the year will be asked to leave the school. No student will be allowed to study for the third year in the same class.
The result declared at the end of the school year is final and is not reconsidered.
Preponement or postponement of written exam is not entertained for any particular child.
Copying or using unfair means in the examinations will call for severe disciplinary action as per the school rules enforced from time to time.

The assessments are based on a set of Formative and Summative assessments. Formative assessments are typically topic based monthly assessment which can be in the form of written, quizzes, orals, discussions, projects etc. Summative assessments are written tests held at the end of the two-terms. The formative assessment is based on activities, written worksheets and oral assessments. The report cards include the results of the formative and summative tests. A 05 point grading scheme is followed in the report card. Formative Assessments will be class based creative evaluations on continuous basis and parents will not get any schedule for the same; while Summative Assessments are written pen paper tests, hence, schedule will be provided.
