 Creativity Action Service (CAS)

Each subject has standard competencies which identify key concepts that underpin that curriculum area with subject expectation that describe what a student should understand as a result of studying a particular content area.

Assessment Criteria are then attached to each subject. They describe what a student should know, understand or be able to do at each stage of their learning in each subject. These criteria are what our teachers assess to ensure that students are reaching the subject expectation and are working towards the standards competency.

In the Al Jabr High School, the standard competency, subject expectation, and assessment criteria specifically take into account the requirements of internal examinations that students sit in Grade 10, Grade 11 and Grade 12.
