Recently, Singapore students came out tops in a global benchmarking test for math, science and reading in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). As we celebrate this success, we should also take the time to consider if quantitative measurements are enough to gauge a learner’s potential.

In the latest issue of SingTeach, Lecturer Dr Tay Hui Yong from the Curriculum, Teaching and Learning Academic Group at the National Institute of Education shares her thoughts on this, and more, in our Big Idea article.
