Assessment Systems in Southeast Asia: Models, Successes, and Challenges

SEAMEO INNOTECH and representatives from ten of the eleven member countries of the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) – Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam, convened a regional workshop on July 17-19, 2012 to learn from each other, particularly in the area of assessment of students as a critical tool in maximizing learning and teaching.


The workshop revealed that while curricular reforms have been periodically undertaken and are well articulated in all the member countries of SEAMEO, the assessment systems of each country need to be further strengthened and firmly established by instituting reforms by learning from other another. SEAMEOmember countries have taken bold steps, initiating discussion and work groups to share and understand how assessment systems in their own countries could be more relevant and responsive to the demands of the 21st century.
