Hi cluelessmum,

Presumably, your child is in P4 GEP? There are assessment rubrics for every practically every project, assignment, presentation etc, if their marks are included in the final year computation. But you don't really have to worry as teachers will always provide the rubrics with each task and if your child follows the criteria set out closely, getting full marks is highly possible for high-quality pieces of work. Good luck and have fun with GEP !

Cheers! :D

My kid is also in P4 GEP. You mean the teachers are supposed to provide the rubrics with each task, if applicable? Or do we have to ask the teachers specifically for the rubrics? cause she definitely did not receive any. Maybe I should email the teachers to ask :?:

Also, thanks to 2ppaamm for sharing the rubrics with us. It's really a great help!
:thankyou:

Hi tired mum,

I'm not sure if giving out rubrics are 'compulsory' for each task but in my child's 3 years in GEP, they were dutifully handed out. Rubrics can be really helpful as it helps to guide the child along, especially if he/she has no clear idea of how to approach the task, which may be quite a common problem faced by many GEP kids. Many of the assignments are demanding and teachers' expectations high. No harm asking the teacher for the rubrics I suppose.

Hi applecore, my dd is in P5 tis year.... yea I am still clueless :lol:
It seems like different GEP schools have different approaches to teaching the students... so far I have not been informed to attend any briefing on her chosen IVP project which I think some other GEP schools had given.....

Rubrics are given for all performance tasks and at the beginning, not when the child is supposed to hand out. That is expected, otherwise how would the student know what is the std of work.

My girl is in Sec 1 now. After a while, you don't get too anxious. The GEPers are resilient, they will finally be able to cope. If you want your child to gain from doing the tasks, don't provide too much guidance.

Anyone can enlighten what they are teaching in Maths? I have no clue how they will be assessed, what will be taught. Did your school handout any syllabus?
