COVID-19 Precautionary Measures

What are some COVID-19 precautionary measures I should take note of when administering the SAS?

One should always refer to the prevailing advisory issued by the Ministry of Health Singapore for the overarching guidelines on safe management measures in face-to-face assessment sessions. The following are some suggested measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission during the administration of the SAS. As this is a deviation from the standardised administration, the assessor should record and report all observations on how these measures may have impacted the student’s level of engagement and/or performance.

  • Sit at least 1-metre away from the student throughout your interaction with him/her.

  • Both the assessor and the student should wear protective face masks or face shields during the whole assessment process.

  • Use a plastic sheet which can be disinfected before and after the assessment, over pages / items that require the student to point on the Administration Booklet.

  • Encourage the student to provide a verbal response where allowed.

  • Disinfect all furniture, manipulatives and stationery used by the student after each assessment with alcohol wipes/spray.
