KANGAR, Dec 19 (Bernama) — The School Based Assessment (PBS) is a suitable indicator to evaluate the true capability of students holistically, says Perlis Education director Izmi Ismail.
He said the system which was introduced since 2014 was showing good acceptance and had boosted the academic and curriculum performances of students and schools.
“This balance is what is hoped for, by the ministry in moulding the students because the PBS components are comprehensive in nature involving the school assessment and centralised assessment, namely Form Three Assessment (PT3), Physical Activity Assessment, Sports and Co-curriculum (PAJSK) and Psychometric Assessment (PPsi),” he said.
Izmi was talking to reporters after a ceremony to announce the PT3 results and excellent students at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Agama Perempuan Alawiyah (SMKAP Alawiyah) here today.
According to Izmi, schools generally showed very good development and many recorded improvements in terms of PT3 results which were announced today, as compared to the previous year.
Meanwhile, SMKAP Alawiyah principal Shabariah Othman said the performances and acceptance of students at the school for PT3 were very positive and they had more fun seeking to better themselves academically, and in terms of co-curriculum, besides being more creative and prominent in a balanced manner.
Meanwhile, the mother of a PT3 student from Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Syed Hassan, who wanted to be known only as Ainul Karim, said although her son was not among the excellent PT3 students, he had shown positive development.
“Since the PBS system was implemented, I can see my son has better confidence and no problem in his study pattern. It was different previously, when he was lazy about attending school and easily giving up.
