PUTRAJAYA: From this year, assessment of Year One, Two and Three pupils (first level) will be learning-centred instead of exam-oriented.
Education director-general Datuk Dr Amin Senin said in a statement today that this alternative assessment takes into consideration various factors besides exams to determine a student's academic growth.
He said the assessment would be made through such activities as discussions, presentations, project works, assignments, practical sessions, observation, portfolios, exhibitions and quizzes.
"This assessment is in line with the 21st century learning methods based on collaboration, creativity, communications, critical thinking and value," he said.
The alternative assessment is also in line with classroom assessment, which was one of the components of school-based assessment which is focused on the holistic development of the pupil.
Amin said the alternative assessment could create a learning culture which was more fun and meaningful to pupils compared to formal exams. — Bernama
