MEDIATION: Abridged CAPS Section 4 (Assesment): NS Gr. 7 - 9
Launched in January 2020 the DBE has developed an abridged version of section 4 of the CAPS, focusing mainly on the reduction and streamlining of formal assessment tasks in most subjects. The changes were made to relieve teachers from the overloading burden with regards to the number of assessment tasks, thus improving the focus on teaching and learning. The revisions in some subjects also include guidance on cognitive demands and types of assessment.
