Holistic Assessment Implementation in Singapore Primary Schools – Part I: Using Assessment to Support the Learning and Development of Students

In 2009, the Primary Education Review and Implementation (PERI) Committee made a series of recommendations to enhance primary school education. The intent was to realise a more holistic primary education and prepare our young for the future. One of the recommendations was to use Holistic Assessment (HA) to support student learning and development.HA refers to the ongoing gathering of information from various sources on different facets of a child’,s learning and development. The key features of HA implementation include schools adopting a more balanced assessment system, the use of appropriate assessment methods and a balanced assessment communication system to support and report student learning.This paper discusses the approach and strategies used to implement HA in all primary schools and the capacity building and resource support provided to school leaders and teachers. It also discusses the progress of implementation and some preliminary findings and observations.Key Words:PERI, Holistic Assessment, Assessment Literacy, Assessment Competency, Holistic Education
