Keynote Title: “Education Performance Test for Special Education in Malaysia”

Abstract: Performance test is a form of evaluation conducted to measure the level of ability of a person in achieving an evaluation objective. Performance test covers several criteria as well as specific steps in its implementation. The use of this type of assessment in measuring the ability and performance of special need students in school is seen as relevant in making their assessment more holistic and not focused on certain aspects only. This performance test can also expose teachers to the real reality of the situation of the students being tested. This concept paper is written to explore the understanding of all aspects of performance test in schools covering the strengths and weaknesses in its implementation. It is hoped that this concept paper can provide a basic overview of the needs of performance test in schools for special education.
Keywords: performance test, special education, Malaysia school, measurement and evaluation.
