Snapshots of Singapore Primary School Teachers’ Conceptions and Practices of Classroom Assessment

Following a review of primary education in 2009, the Singapore government accepted a key recommendation by the Primary Education Review Committee to de-emphasise testing andexamination at the lower primary levels. Instead, ',holistic assessment', practices that support teaching and learning will be progressively introduced in all lower primary school classrooms from 2010.This paper presents the preliminary findings of two pilot studies on the enactment of a ‘,holistic assessment’, policy at its initial implementation stage in 2010. The various conceptions of ‘,holistic assessment’, and implementation of new assessment practices that support teaching and learning, as ,well as its possible tension with past conceptions and practices of assessment will be discussed.
