Assessment “for” learning
Certification for our Swim-Perfect modules will be based on continuous assessment for learning vs the traditional assessment of learning! Certifications are free of charge. Students who passed continuous assessment will be awarded with a certificate of achievement. An award of Merit will be issued for students who are able to challenge themselves to achieve a higher requirement within that level, for example, completing 50m breast stroke within a stipulated timing as compared to just finishing it at own time.
Frequently asked question by parents
1. What is assessment for learning?
It means that the assessment is “on going”, without our children even knowing it at all (deliberately not letting children know).
2. How often are the assessment?
Since it is assessment for learning, how frequent the certification is not crucial now, but how well your child can excel in learning under the guidance of our coach is the key to what you will be looking at.
3. What are our children being assessed on?
We have a set of achievement list given to the coaches and they’ll be assessing the children according to that. Upon achieving a satisfactory standard in that series of skill sets, coaches will inform the head office to issue the proficiency certificate.
4. How many levels are there in the SwimPerfect syllabus?
We have altogether 16 levels of certification where all of which are free!
5. What will they get at the end of 16 levels?
A medal will be issued to the children when they completed the entire path (all 16 levels), which comes free too! They can then move on the lifesaving path.
