Customising to Singapore Primary Schools Assessment needs: The scenario in 3 schools

In a recent review of the primary education in Singapore, the Primary Education Review and Implementation (MOE, 2009) Committee recommended that changes be made in order torealise a more holistic primary education. Many of these changes were encouraged at the school-level to prepare our young for the future. Within the constraints of this paper, three primary schools needs and approaches were highlighted vis-à,-vis revisions made within the schools so as to place greater emphasis on formative assessments- One school focused on training all teachers, another focused on teaching the Activists (n=7) and the third focused on teaching how to use rubrics in P3. In a series of professional development workshops, each school’,s objectives as well as the terms and concepts used for educational assessment were discussed. Interviews, lesson observations and surveys were used to help uncover the situation too. Triangulation of these data was made. Findings included the need on boosting the teachers’, competencies on the ‘,what’, and ‘,how’, of administering alternative modes of assessment. It was also found that for these schools to sustain such efforts, application and implementation of the knowledge acquired needed coherent and consistent systemic ,infrastructure.
