WHITHER SCHOOL-BASED COURSEWORK ASSESSMENT IN SINGAPORE?

For several years, the Singapore education system has been broadening the focus on one-off examinations to include school-based coursework assessment. This is intended as a way forward in developing creativity and inquiry-based skills that are considered necessary for success in the globally competitive environment. Educational views on assessment to be not just ‘,of learning’, but ‘,for learning’, have advanced interest towards school-based coursework assessment. While there has been extensive discussion on the positive outcomes of student learning that is defined by school-based coursework assessment, much less has been said about its associated limitations and drawbacks. This paper shares about Singapore’,s experiences with school-based coursework assessment with reference to a subject at the national GCE A-Level examination. Key challenges that would have to be addressed to further benefit from school-based coursework assessment in Singapore are also identified and discussed in the paper.
