Pre-University Project Work in Singapore: An Alternative Mode of Assessment in Singapore

Pre-University Project Work in Singapore: An Alternative Mode of Assessment in Singapore

In 2003, Pre-University Project Work (PW) was implemented as a national examination for all students in Singapore’s Junior Colleges (JC) and Centralised Institute (CI). PW is an alternative mode of school-based assessment that requires students to work together in small groups on a project. Assessment of PW comprises: a Written Report presenting the findings of the project on which students are assessed as a group, an Oral Presentation, on which students are assessed on a group and individual basis, and a Project File documenting processes that students have been engaged and for which they are awarded an individual mark. PW is compulsory for all JC/CI students and is one of the admission criteria for local universities.

This paper aims to update conference on Singapore’s experiences in implementing this mode of assessment and will explore some of the issues that have arisen that are also pertinent to school-based assessment in general.
