Our assessments

Sekolah Nusa Alam uses the Cambridge Primary testing structure to assess learner performance and report progress to learners and parents. Cambridge Primary uses internationally benchmarked tests, giving parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.

There are two testing options at the Primary stage: Cambridge Primary Progression Tests and Cambridge Primary Checkpoint.

 

 

 Cambridge Primary Progression Tests:

  • provide detailed information about the performance of each learner for stages 3, 4, 5 and 6 of the curriculum
  • enable teachers to give structured feedback to learners and parents
  • enable teachers to compare the strengths and weaknesses of individuals and groups
  • are marked by teachers in your school
  • come with clear guidance, standards and mark schemes
  • can be used at any time during the year
  • can be downloaded securely online.

Cambridge Primary provides a unique analysis tool for Cambridge Primary Progression Tests – the Cambridge Progress Checker – to track learners’ progress. Using a spreadsheet, teachers upload learners’ test results and can then analyse results and create and print reports. This enables comparisons of a learner’s results against their class, school or other schools around the world, and on a year-by-year basis.

 

Cambridge Primary Checkpoint:

  • is a test for learners at the end of the final year of Cambridge Primary and is available in English, mathematics and science. English as a SecondLanguage tests are available from our sister organisation Cambridge English Languag e Assessment
  • tests skills, knowledge and understanding at the end of stages 4– 6 of the curriculum for English and mathematics, and stages 3– 6 of the curriculum for science
  • The tests are marked in Cambridge to provide an international benchmark of learner performance
  • each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report
  • the feedback report shows how a learner has performed in relation to the curriculum, their learning group, the whole school, and against all learners who have taken tests in that series around the world.
  • helps teachers to monitor group and individual performance and manage learning programmes

 

Cambridge Primary Subjects Overview

 

The Cambridge Primary English curriculum is presented in five content areas. The framework promotes an enquiry-based approach to learning to develop thinking skills and encourage intellectual engagement. Phonics, spelling and vocabulary and Grammar and punctuation are about use of English. Grammar and punctuation is further divided into Reading and Writing to reflect the different ways in which grammar and punctuation are applied in each of these skills.Reading, Writing, and Speaking and listening are about developing thinking skills and encouraging intellectual engagement. This curriculum aims to enable learners to communicate confidently and effectively and to develop critical skills in order to respond to a range of information, media and texts with enjoyment and understanding. Learners who follow this framework will develop a first language competency in English based on a curriculum designed to be successful in any culture and to promote cross-cultural understanding. The Cambridge Primary English curriculum framework provides a solid foundation on which the later stages of education can be built.

The Cambridge Primary Mathematics curriculum is presented in five content areas: Number, Geometry, Measure, Handling data and Problem solving. The first four content areas are all underpinned by Problem solving, which describes using techniques and skills and the application of understanding and strategies in solving problems. Mental strategies are also a key part of the Number content. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.

The Cambridge Primary Science curriculum is presented in four content areas: Scientific enquiry, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning investigative work and recording and analysing data.
