In line with MOE's announcements in September 2018 with regard to revisions to school-based assessments, our school has revised our assessment plan to better support our students' learning. Broadly, we will be removing common tests and mid-year examinations for all our Secondary One, Two and Three students. In their place, we will be assessing our students via Weighted Assessments (WA) conducted in Terms One, Two and Three.
We would like to share the following reasons for making this change:
- We hope to create more time and space for our students to deepen their learning, better enjoy the process of learning, and develop dispositions for lifelong learning;
- We hope to encourage our students to revise their work more regularly throughout the year and not just prepare for summative assessments; and
- We wish to give our students more time to develop their knowledge and skills in the respective subjects before they are summatively assessed.
The general assessment plan for our Secondary One to Three students in 2021 is displayed on the school website <Under Assessment>. The WA for each subject may take the form of a pen and paper class test (coloured orange) or other formats like online assignments, projects and practical tests (coloured light green). The End-Of-Year examination will comprise 60% of a student's overall grade, with the WAs taking up the other 40%. We strongly urge all students to revise their work regularly throughout the year rather than put in past-minute effort just before the examinations. Students should treat each WA as gradual build-up of knowledge, skills and understandings in preparation for the final examination.
As we will no longer be administering our WAs during a common time, the specific dates on which the WAs will be administered for different classes may differ. For this reason, we will not be publishing the specific dates for each WA. To manage our students' overall assessment load, we will take care not to schedule more than two WAs on any given day. Within the stipulated week, our teachers will negotiate the specific test dates with their subject class. The schedule for WAs for each term will be released only from the 4th week of each term.

For SBB/Out of stream subjects:
Take note that SBB students will follow the test week allocated for the stream/class for their respective SBB subject.
Example: a NA student doing Science at the Express level, will need to take his/her Science WA on the designated week for Express.
Please consult your subject teacher if in doubt.
