Provision of Timely Feedback to Students and Parents
We monitor students’ learning through appropriate formal and informal methods so as to provide them with timely and useful feedback for improving learning and closing learning gaps.
Some examples how we use various assessment methods to monitor students’ learning include:
Engagement Parents through the Parent-Teacher Conferencing (PTC)
Besides providing timely feedback during PTC, we conduct curriculum briefing sessions for parents to communicate and update the assessment formats and scientific learning opportunities in school. We also conduct Parent Workshop to enable parents to understand what their child/children will be learning in class as well as to empower them to follow up at home via homework and revision.
