SCHOOL-BASED ASSESSMENT OF PRACTICAL BIOLOGY
1.0 General Information
Continuous assessment of practical work will be carried out throughout form six course.
This assessment is expected to commence in early July 2010 and end before 30 August 2011.
Majlis Peperiksaan Malaysia (MPM) has determined 20 experiments to be carried out by students. Of these 20 experiments, only 13 compulsory experiments will be assessed by the teacher. (Refer to the Table of Summary of Experiments on pages 4.) The assessment of practical work will be by the carried out subject teacher during the experiment and also based on the student’s practical work report.
Students should plan their practical work first before the experiment is carried out.
Compulsory experiments are to be carried out by students individually, or in groups as recommended in the Table of Summary of Experiments.
Students may write their practical work report in either English or Bahasa Malaysia. The report is to be submitted to the teacher on the same day of the experiment is carried out unless otherwise stated. (Refer to the Table of Summary of Experiments.) Practical work reports which are not submitted on the day of the experiment are to be awarded ‘0’ mark.
Practical work report which can be completed at home is to be submitted to the teacher not later than 3 days from the date of the experiment. A penalty of 2 marks is to be imposed for the report submitted late to the teacher. Practical work report which is submitted later than 7 days from the fixed date are to be awarded ‘0’ mark.
For a student who is absent from an experiment, the teacher can fix another date for the student to carry out the experiment.
Practical work reports which have been submitted to the teacher can be returned to the students only after the teacher has completed assessing the reports and recording the marks of all students. However, the...
