In order to cater for learner diversity, assignments are designed in a diversified and layered manner. Types of assignments include preview, consolidation exercise, application, extended and challenging questions. Apart from written assignments, students can display their work through oral presentations, group discussions, role-plays, project studies, videos and model production.
At the end of each learning unit, semester and school year, students’ learning outcomes and achievements are assessed and collected.
Questions in test papers are layered in their design, including basic questions and challenge questions, to cater for individual differences in learning and abilities and encourage students to challenge difficult questions. Assessment of Science in junior forms includes experiment assessment to test students’ ability to individually make use of acquired knowledge to carry out problem-solving experiments.
Assessment is integrated into learning and teaching to help students understand the content and objectives of learning. It also provides evidence for teachers to give effective feedback so as to advance students’ learning. In our classroom activities, we promote self-evaluation and peer evaluation to enhance students’ reflection and adjustment of personal learning goals and strategies.
