A tiered teaching system has been implemented covering teaching, pedagogy, classwork, and assessment. Teaching and learning strategies are constantly reviewed and developed to support academic progress at students’ own pace.
A collaborative learning approach is adopted to promote meaningful teacher-student interaction and facilitate mutual learning. This is supported by a wide variety of teaching and learning strategies, involving brain-based learning, e-learning, and multi-sensory teaching. Students and teachers may also work together to choose tiered assignments. These provide varying levels of difficulty and are based on students’ individual capabilities.
“Standardized Papers” and “Adaptive Papers” are set for the major subjects in S1 and S2. There are core, extended, and challenging sections in other examination papers designed to help students understand their strengths and weaknesses and encourage self-reflection.
