Assessment in Singapore has generally been summative in nature, placing much emphasis on high-stakes examinations as one of the defining pillars of the Singapore education system. In a rapidly changing and globalising world, the Ministry of Education has been changing its assessment mode to include alternative and formative assessments for learning in order to shift away from the examination-oriented mind-set and make more room for creativity and critical thinking. Self-assessment and feedback as part of strategies for assessment for learning will engage students to deliberately reflect on what they are learning and how they are learning it while they utilise the feedback from teachers to enrich their understandings of their own learning and improve their performance.
