这篇日志是关于马来西亚中学的ESL教师的学校评估。《华尔街日报》是由教育学院的陈元福(Chan Yuen Fook)和Gurnam Kaur Sidhu撰写的，他是UiTM Shah Alam。以学校为基础的评估是监测、评估和实施计划的过程之一，以解决在学校中观察到的弱点和优点。实际上，我们没有意识到，自上世纪90年代末和2000年初以来，学校的评估已经在我们的课堂上实施了。不幸的是，只有很少的研究来调查学校的评估可能会给学生的成绩带来很大的影响。因此，本研究的目的是调查马来西亚ESL教师在课堂上进行学校评估的知识和最佳实践。以学校为基础的评估被认为是帮助教师了解学生学习进度和了解学生学习情况的另一种方法。2003年5月7日，我们马来西亚前教育部长谭斯·穆萨·穆罕默德表示，实施学校评估的目标是让我们的教育体系更少应试。因此，通过在我们的课堂上实施SBA，可以更好地评估学生的能力。
This journal is about the school based assessment among ESL teachers in Malaysian secondary schools. The journal was been written by Chan Yuen Fook and Gurnam Kaur Sidhu from Faculty of Education, UiTM Shah Alam. School based assessment is one of the processes of monitoring, evaluating and implementing plans to address the weaknesses and strengths that will observe in school. Actually, without we conscious, the school based assessment already implemented in our classroom since the late 1990s and the beginning of year 2000. Unfortunately, there are only a few research to investigate either the school based assessment could give a big hit in student's achievement or not. Therefore, this research was conducted to investigate the knowledge and the best practices of Malaysian ESL teachers in conducting the school based assessment (SBA) in their classroom. School based assessment is seen as an alternative ways to help the teachers to find out the progress and also the understanding of their students in their learning. According to our former Malaysian Minister of Education, Tan Sri Musa Mohamed on May 7, 2003, he said that the objective of implementing the school based assessment is to make our educational system less exam-oriented. Thus, by implementing SBA in our classrooms, it would be a better option in assess the students' abilities.
