Sage is focused on helping schools to develop strategies and educational experiences to engender new thinking skills to students so that they become life-long learners.
Consult schools to provide the best education and compete internationally
Sage’s vision coincides with that of it’s partner, Educational Initiatives: Helping to build a world where all children are learning with understanding. Today, over 80 schools across UAE take ASSET, and all Indian curriculum schools across Dubai mandatorily take ASSET.Download National Agenda Parameter
ASSET (Assessment of Scholastic Skills through Educational Testing) is a skill-based assessment test that evaluates how well the fundamentals and core concepts have been understood by a student. The test also highlights the strengths, weaknesses and focus areas for each student in the form of personalised reports. These meticulously designed multiple-choice tests aim to measure and improve essential skills in students, something that mere rote-learning can seldom achieve.
These skill-based tests are developed for students of classes 3 to 10 and modelled on CBSE, ICSE, IGCSE and several major state boards' curriculum. The results are detailed skill-wise feedback that indicates the student’s strengths and areas for improvement. The students receive individual reports while the teachers and principal receive batch reports that also juxtapose their children's performance against their peers across the country.
Core subjects: English, Maths, Science
Optional subjects: Social Science, Hindi
There are several advantages to choosing this programme, the salient ones being - giving students an accurate idea of their subject comprehension and providing effective and concrete solutions to improve the teaching-learning experience. The percentile nature of grading presents an opportunity to set a high benchmark and view the performance of the students against their peers nationwide. These tests are also an opening for teachers to train better and equip themselves with skills that are more pertinent to their student set.
Formative assessment programmes for teachers to forecast and support student’s performance
We help schools achieve great results with Detailed Assessment, a product by Educational Initiatives to assist teachers for classroom remediation.
Detailed Assessment (DA) aims at refining the assessment process in schools. It enables teachers to focus on their core competencies while providing a deeper insight into the degree of comprehension and subject misconceptions in students, and how to improve the same.
DA is a topic-specific advanced assessment tool that designs customised assessment programs in accordance with the school curriculum and presents immediate detailed feedback on individual student performance. This inventive approach bridges the gap between teaching and learning and promotes teachers to personalize their methods of instruction to best suit their students, thereby strengthening their fundamentals and paving the way for a brighter future.
Detailed Assessment advocates proactive testing methods rather than reactive reflections of past performance. The rubrics are designed to measure the effectiveness of teaching, the progress of each student and scope for further improvement.
DA prepares test papers based on the topics proposed by the teacher and provides feedback within 48 hours. Students receive a detailed report on their test result. These reports denote the areas that require attention and pointers on methods to enhance performance.
This useful tool facilitates in bringing out the best of each student by following an exemplary model of personalised testing, instant feedback, remediation & support. These reports are far more beneficial than idle numerical scores that do not facilitate further improvement.
We also provide most proven personalised Math program, reviewed by researchers at Harvard, MIT & Stanford

Mindspark is a computer-based adaptive learning program that seeks to encourage self-learning, aid the teachers in clearing misconceptions and improve the quality of instruction. Intensive research, years of setting up and successfully running a school as well as analysing data on student learning across the country led to the inception of Mindspark, which was envisaged as a tool to spur children to think, question and learn more in a personalised and interactive environment.
Students learn math and language by answering questions that are appropriate to their current understanding, with a gradual increase in difficulty. When a student answers incorrectly, the adaptive logic address the errors and misconceptions and redirects the child to revisit and strengthen the fundamentals. The interactive visuals and the game-based approach works much better than rote-learning or idle memorizing. In addition to concepts like constructivism, Mindspark implements strategies like gamification and behaviourism to improve student results. Teachers too benefit from this tool as it complements their methods unobtrusively and provides reports (compiled from student usage data) on where they can focus more.
Upcoming training programs for teachers to teach strategies and methodology in accordance with KHDA norms
We will be updating the detailed courses and information regarding this upcoming programme shortly.

SAGE has significant potential for standardized external assessments and their independent assessment programs like ASSEt provide the quality that is almost impossible to find otherwise. The value to our school was in their ability to be immediately responsive to our needs and to provide oustanding quality and service everytime.
SAGE comes with my highest recommendations as a provider of external assessments.
