Continuous Assessment Suggestions

Continuous Assessment Suggestions          

Dear Teachers,

This is a temporary guideline for Year 4, 5 and 6 teachers, and applies for the coming scholastic year. It is made up of already existing exercises from the worksheets which can be used for assessment purposes if teachers wish to use them.

There might be some changes once the final Learning Outcomes are established/introduced in a gradual manner. In this way, however, you will not need to create any new tasks for the moment and you can make use of what is already available.

Please note that this list is not in any way compulsory and teachers may decide to assess through other strategies or exercises. One of the aims of this reform, after all, is to move away from a ‘one size fits all approach.

Thanks & enjoy the rest of the holidays….


PS: An assessment suggestion for Year 6 Block 6.4 will be added soon.
