Customised assessments to enhance 21st century skills in lower primary classrooms

This paper reports on how holistic assessment is carried out in the lower primary classrooms in Rivervale Primary School. Using the school’,s curriculum framework (Riv BE), assessment for learning has been customized into the school programmes to address the challenges of assessing 21st Century competencies. In view of the changes in the educational landscape and the learning needs of pupils, we have refined our assessment for learning to be aligned with the learning outcomes that heighten pupils’, 21st Century skills. School programmes such as Pick &, Tell for English, Riv BE Trail for Mathematics and Learning Journey at the Mall/Neighborhood for Mother Tongue are examples of our innovative attempt to improve assessment. Pick &, Tell is a modified version of Show &, Tell which helps to build confidence in pupils’, oracy. Riv BE Trail addresses pupils’, attitude towards the learning of mathematics. The Learning Journey at the Mall/Neighborhood encourages pupils to see the relevance of Mother Tongue language and its practicality in their daily lives.Keywords: Customised holistic assessments, lower primary, 21st Century competencies ,
