The Ministry of Education (MoE) has adopted the smart measurement policy scheduled to be applicable to public schools, private schools following the MoE's curriculum, institutes of applied technology, technical institutes and continuous integrated education students during the third semester of the academic year 2019/2020.
The smart measurement policy was subjected to a thorough study in which the interest of students was taken into account under the current situation. It was based on several elements to be in line with the methodologies and smart learning methods that the MoE adopted to ensure the sustainability of education in the country.
It is intended that the assessment results be calculated on the basis of measuring the content of the third semester only. The latest AI-enhanced programs will be used to ensure that a unique experience is created that is more closely related to the concept of measuring the learning outputs.
According to the guidelines for applying the smart measurement policy in public schools and private schools following the MoE's curriculum, the weight of the third semester will be restricted to the content of the third semester curricula only with a view to ensuring the measurement of the student's performance in the smart learning process.
A student's grade by the end of the academic year 2019/2020 will be based on the total weights of the three semesters.
Students will receive by the end of the year an electronic report on the year-end result through the student's gate on Al-Manhal Student Information System.
According to the scope of application of the smart measurement policy to public schools and private schools following the MoE's curriculum, first-grade to third-grade students in private schools following the MoE's curriculum will be subject to a formative assessment implemented by the teacher of the subject in accordance with centrally approved methodologies for all subjects. The measurement process will take the form of 'check points' concurrently with the smart learning process covering the third semester content for the subjects.
For fourth-grade to eleventh-grade students, a set of short centralized tests will be applied via electronic testing systems representing the weight of the final assessment and the formative assessment whose tools and application criteria are centrally determined and implemented by the teacher of the subject.
The 'check points' will be applied to the subjects and represent the weight of the full final assessment as per the following determiners: two to four tests are applied as per the course of the subject, test time ranges between 10 and 30 minutes and 5 to 15 questions are posed. These will be prepared centrally, estimated and monitored automatically under the teacher's supervision and target the subject studied by the student in the third semester only.
The smart measurement will be applicable to students of determination as per the needs and considerations of each of them and according to the individual educational plan (curriculum alignment/curriculum modification).
Meanwhile, the terms of the smart learning assessment policy for the twelfth grade will be as follows: students will be subjected to continuous smart measurement processes implemented by the teacher of the subject for all subjects where smart learning has a specific weight out of the semester weight.
Central smart tests weighing 30 per cent are applied to the subjects for the year-end and cover the 'check points' for the third semester. Students of determination, however, will be subject to 'check points' that suit their individual differences in line with the relevant assessment policy previously approved.
The measurement policy for continuous integrated education students (eradication of illiteracy, academic education, vocational education, home schooling) will be applicable as stipulated in the above-mentioned public education policy.
