The assessment approaches outlined in the available six CCSLC syllabuses (Mathematics, English, Social Studies, Integrated Science, French, Spanish) comprise teacher assessment and an external assessment. The teacher assessment is both formative and summative. The emphasis is on mastery of competencies, therefore, the teacher is encouraged to provide much opportunity for the students to acquire the competencies identified in any given module. For the summative assessment at the end of each of the five modules, the syllabuses give a generic task and a scoring rubric or mark scheme. The teacher is encouraged to administer the summative assessment only when the students are ready for assessment on that module.
The assessment methods and tasks suggested in the CCSLC syllabuses are examples of good practice and may therefore be adapted for use in other contexts and programmes.
