School -based assessment for learners in grade 4-7:
The test series forms part of the School-Based Assessment Plan. It plays a very important part of the term mark. The term mark does not only consist of the test, but all the formal assessment tasks and assignments form the total term mark.
Learners write tests, according to a time table, in terms 1 and 3, while a formal examination takes place in terms 2 and 4.
Each grade sets up a time table and sends it home one week before the first test starts. The time table will indicate the date for each subject and the content of the test. A notice will appear in the De Kuiltjie to inform parents about the time tables and test series. Tests will be written in class time.
