PUTRAJAYA: Year Six pupils are no longer judged formally based on the number of As they score in their Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) examination.
 
Starting this year, Education director-general Datuk Dr Amin Senin (pic) said they will also receive formal reports for sports, physical and curriculum activities assessment; classroom assessment and psychometric assessment.
 
All these components are part of the Primary School Assessment Report (PPSR) or Pelaporan Pentaksiran Sekolah Rendah, he said when announcing the PPSR report analysis on Thursday (Nov 23).
 
At the national level, sports, physical and curriculum activities assessment, UPSR and psychometric assessment give a general picture of the state of the primary school education system, he said.
 
"Overall, the results are good but there is still room for improvement," said Dr Amin.
 
"Primary school pupils are assessed more meaningfully and holistically, and no longer just focused on their UPSR results.
 
A large portion of pupils showed good and excellent achievements in co-curricular activities with UPSR scores also improving this year.
