Shift 1: Holistic, Entrepreneurial and Balanced Graduates
Initiative A2: Developing an Integrated Assessment
On realizing Shift 1: Holistic, Entrepreneurial and Balanced Graduates in the Malaysia Education Blueprint (Higher Education) – MEB (HE), iCGPA has been developed as mechanism of assessment and reporting of students’ development and performance.
iCGPA is an integrated mechanism for assessing and reporting of students’ development and performance as well as learning gains of their ethics, knowledge and abilities. The reporting illustrates attainment of attributes outlined in the six student aspirations stipulated in the MEB (HE) as well as the eight domains of learning outcomes listed in the Malaysian Qualifications Framework. It is an integrated assessment mechanism that is aimed to assist various stakeholders in making decisions or planning for improvement. The purpose of this mechanism is to drive development and alignment in curriculum design, delivery and assessment at programme level and at course level focusing on student’s learning experience towards development of a holistic and balanced human being.
