This includes using the correct tense, count, gender and precise forms of various words.

  •  All the new students above 5 years of age are evaluated for their Tamil skill. Depending on the evaluation test score, the students are assigned to the right grade.
  • At the end of each term, teachers issue a progress report to the students. Parents are encouraged to contact the child's teacher or Alabama Tamil School Management team to discuss the students' progress. If necessary, a parent teacher meeting can be scheduled to review the student's progress and set goals to promote achievement.
  • End of the year student evaluation method:  ​​Each student will be observed in the class by his/her teacher on every school day for his/her attendance, class participation and homework skills. Additionally students in the higher grade levels will be observed for reading, recital, writing projects and book reports etc. All these observations are entered into the student's log book every week.

    This information will be used at the end of the year, along with the student's Term Test scores and Final exam score, to calculate the year-round performance of the student and to promote the students to the next grade.
