For Parents

Parents can use the diagnostic report to discuss the students’ performance with teachers and thereby contribute to the development of an individual learning program for their child.

Each student receives:

Engaging and challenging full-colour test booklet
Individual report containing detailed diagnostic data
Information about individual progress over time
Password to access their results online which can be viewed and downloaded
Award certificate indicating the achieved level of success

The diagnostic report provides valuable feedback to the students and parents. It indicates which questions the student has answered correctly, the skills demonstrated and the comparative difficulty of each question.

Each student’s report shows:

The student’s answer to each question as well as the correct answer
The performance of each student in the different skill areas assessed
The progress of each student every year over the past eight years
The student’s comparative performance against the Malaysian region

The report containing detailed diagnostic data is particularly valuable for providing an independent result of assessment in specific Key Learning Areas for students at all levels of achievement.

By participating in the competitions, students are better prepared for state-based tests. Students can also monitor their progress from year to year and gain valuable experience in sitting external tests.

The student report and certificate can be used when applying for scholarships and jobs and when transferring to new schools.
