Ans. KISD OLYMPIAD is a diagnostic that actually helps students improve analytical skills.
KISD OLYMPIAD measures how well a student has understood concepts and gives detailed feedback on the same, to help them improve.
Thus KISD OLYMPIAD helps each student know whether she has actually understood a concept early on so that immediate action can be taken by teachers.
Often students have conceptual gaps that increase as they progress from class to class.
Ans. KISD OLYMPIAD acts as a neutral, third-party assessment of the child’s achievement, in addition to the internals in the school.
- KISD OLYMPIAD Is a multiple choice.
- Has questions that are challenging.
- The student can write the exam from school or home since it’s online
- Each and every student gets an individual login with an attractive dashboard with instant results where they can also compare with other participants who have given the exam.
Any student from class “V to X” studying in any board like CBSE, ICSE, or State syllabus can participate in this Olympiad.
* For students in India only.
This is based on fundamentals and is irrelevant to any particular board state, CBSE and ICSE and competition is open.
Subjects are Mathematics, Science, General Knowledge & Aptitude.
The duration is 70 minutes and the number of questions is 60. 15 questions from each subject.
There is no special preparation the child needs to make for the KISD OLYMPIAD. This is only meant to skills acquired and the basic understanding of topics learnt.
The KISD Olympiad is conducted once in a year and the Practice Test has unlimited attempts.
Students have unlimited access to the practice test. This will help students learn to give online exams and also help them prepare for the Olympiad Exam Pattern.
KISD OLYMPIAD s skills and concepts underlying the curriculum as opposed to facts and procedures learnt by rote and drill. We have evolved a common curriculum framework after studying the content of different national and international boards. This helps us to have a single set of questions is relevant to all students, irrespective of their board – and provides insightful diagnostic information about critical concepts and 21st century skills. Also, you may notice that most questions provide needed information, and recall is rarely. This helps the student to answer the question even if he has not done something similar in the class, as long as he is able to approach the question logically and analytically.
I know that memorization is bad, but that is the best way to get marks in the board exam. So why worry about understanding and skills if it is not going to help in the final stage?
If children learn their fundamentals and concepts with understanding, they develop a strong foundation of confidence. This confidence increases their ability to work hard and perform well in stressful situations like the board exams. On the other hand, memorization increases the load on the student, especially when the quantum of topics in the syllabus increases. This leads to increased stress, fear, loss of confidence, and a general dislike for learning and exams in general. So the performance in the board exams becomes a function of a child’s memory, stress level, and the nature and quantum of questions. Besides, memorization does not help in the later stages, when children have to attempt competitive exams. Competitive exams do not content, but skills and aptitude. So, keeping track of your child’s development in terms of understanding and skills will help the child in the long run.
Our research has shown that the number of questions under each skill in a KISD OLYMPIAD, is statistically sufficient, to be able to judge the strengths and weaknesses with a high degree of confidence. Carefully crafted Multiple Choice Questions are well suited to determine if the child has understood a concept. This is because each wrong option is carefully framed to capture common student misconceptions and errors. A great amount of rigor goes into making each of these questions to ensure their quality and their ability to diagnose specific skills.
While every child and every school is unique, and comparison may have its limitations, KISD OLYMPIAD provides useful benchmarks that allow students, parents, teachers, and principals to see where they stand with respect to thousands of others. For example, students receive a percentile score which shows them where they stand with respect to their peers across the other schools. Teachers can see how students of their class performed on a particular skill or question in companion with all students across the other schools. And schools can see where each class or section stands with respect to the all-schools average. These are just some examples- KISD OLYMPIAD provides many other kinds of benchmarking information.
No, they can participate in a free practice test to practice
A large number of different reports are shared with schools as well as Parents and students themselves because the performance details along with comparison can see in the student’s dashboard.
KISD OLYMPIAD Online is an online exam portal, diagnostic which actually helps students improve. Unlike regulars which try only to find out how much a child knows (or has memorized), this measures how well a student has understood concepts and gives detailed feedback on the same, to help him/her improve.
Being an objective type, and online a student will get detailed analysis of their results. Based on this, the report for each child, identifying the areas of strengths and the areas where improvement is needed.

KISD OLYMPIAD provides the following benefits to parents, children, and schools:
• The skills that a child is expected to develop during the year
• A graphic skill profile that shows a child’s strengths and weaknesses across skill nodes the 4 subjects.
• A detailed skill-wise break-up of each skill node and the performance of a child vis-à-vis other children
• A question wise analysis that provides an immediate tool to check whether the child made a silly mistake or there was a mistake in the understanding of concepts.
This would enable you, as a parent, to understand what is expected from the child, help his/her to improve in his/her areas of difficulty, and consequently perform better.
