1.0

INTRODUCTION The UPSR Practical Work Assessment (PEKA) is a school based assessment that is implemented at school level as part of teaching and learning process. Each assessment consists of three components and to be used by teachers as assessors to carry out the assessment in a coordinated manner.

2.0

Teachers guide.

Teachers guide is a brief lesson plan to help teachers during the teaching and learning process. Teachers can modify the lesson plan in accordance to the pupils abilities and readiness. Not all the assessments are to be used once the pupils have mastered the required skills. 1.0 Activity Sheets- (Appendix). Activity sheets are to be given to the pupils during the assessment. It outlines the procedures and steps to help pupils to carry out the activities during the assessment period. 2.0 Worksheets Worksheets are to be given to the pupils during the assessment. Pupils are asked to complete the exercises and to be submitted as evidence.
