Teachers Only Need To Manage Two Applications To Reduce Burden – Mahdzir

PUTRAJAYA, Jan 10 (Bernama) — Beginning this year, normal class and academic teachers only need to manage the Student Data Base Application (APDM) and School-based Assessment (PBS-Offline) to reduce the burden of their tasks.
