What is IGCSE?

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education or IGCSE is a two-year programme for students between ages 14 to 16. The flexible and stimulating curriculum improves student performance through creative thinking, enquiry and problem-solving skills. This is what makes the curriculum a perfect springboard for advanced studies in international curricula.

Data Analytics at GIIS

GIIS chain of schools in Singapore has a unique methodology to check the academic and non-academic progress of our students. We have devised methods and installed platforms which give us raw data on students’ performances inside and outside the classroom.

Data Analytics in academics at GIIS is called the 7S method, in which teachers and coordinators gather stats on a student’s marks in seven different areas of development. This includes school, segment, section, subject, subject-teacher, student and summary. 

Data Analytics in Sports is called SPEDAS, where devices on playgrounds and on the student’s person, capture on-field movement which is converted to data.

Both data are then studied by the teacher to determine progress of the student in all areas of development, and an assessment is done which helps students understand their strengths and weaknesses
