Mark Allocation

TERM MARKS = Exam Marks (40%) + Coursework Assessment (C.A.) (60%)

The examination questions are mainly short questions and you should give complete sentence answers in most questions.

Coursework assessment includes workbook as well as practical work and classroom performance.

IMPORTANT!

You should always complete your assignment yourself. If you are found to have copied another’s work, your C.A. will be withdrawn, and in such case, you are prone to get a fail in the term marks.

e-Portfolio

An e-portfolio is a collection of a student’s work that are shared electronically for the purpose of reflection, comment and evaluation. It is a website that enables students to collate digital evidence of student's learning.

In S1, students will create their own e-Portfolio by using Google Sites. Students then need to maintain this web site by posting their work throughout the three years of studying TL. To showcase their works, students can take photos, shoot short videos and write brief descriptions on their works.

At the end of each school year, student's e-Portfolio will be assessed by their respective TL teachers and marks will be given which will become part of the coursework assessment.
