The School-Based Assessment (PBS) system will be reviewed following complaints by teachers of their difficulty in accessing the central database to key in their daily assessments.
Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said until then, teachers need not key in the data, which was to have been done daily until April 1.
The ministry also needed to find the solution to the system’s database application and server issues.
Muhyiddin, who is also Deputy Prime Minister, said teachers had been complaining that the system was always congested. They were forced to key in their assessments from out of schools and at wee hours of the night, he said.
“The central database system is incapable of handling the large volume of data,” Muhyiddin said after meeting teachers of SMK Putrajaya Presint 8 (1) here yesterday. “They have asked the ministry to review the programme thoroughly and rectify the flaws.”
