The Ministry of Education and Training has sent a guideline to its sub-departments, instructing how to assess primary students.
As per the document, primary students would be ranked into three standards including subject, competence development and quality. When giving remarks on students, teachers should pay attention to their whole growth procedure and other extra activities, progress, shortcomings, skills, aptitude and quality.
Teachers just give remarks that students complete or not complete educational activities. While remarking students’ ability growth, teachers should write prominent manifestation of a student’s characteristics, progress, and ability formation and growth procedures as well as adjust students’ behaviors and give advice to students’ parents.
The Ministry also guided how to appraise students in the end of academic year.
