IDENTIFYING THE PERCEPTIONS OF TEACHERS, PARENTS AND STUDENTS ON ASSESSMENT IN LOWER PRIMARY CLASSROOMS

N. Karuppiah

This research project aims to develop baseline data about assessment practice in literacy/numeracy in lower Primary classrooms. It also aims to gather data from teachers, parents and students on their perceptions of existing and suggestions for alternative assessments as indicated in the Singapore Primary Education Review and Implementations (PERI) Report dated 27 January 2009.

This project was carried out in 8 selected Primary one/Primary two classrooms. Data was gathered through interview with teachers, parents and students using a semi-structured questionnaire to solicit their views on exiting assessment and suggestions for alternative assessments. Data was also collected through observations to get an understanding of the teaching and learning process as well as to identify the needs of the teachers and students. The information gathered from the interviews, work sample study and observations will be used as baseline data for future reforms in assessments and classroom practices for Primary one/Primary two classrooms as well as inform policy, training and practice.
