Parents Want More Bang for Their Buck
In South Africa a decent education requires a big investment and comes at a hefty price both at private and semi private schools.
The South African education system consists of three types of schools: independent schools (private schools), governing body-funded public schools (Former model C schools) and government schools.
Even though some believe education standards between Private Schools and between Model C Schools are roughly on a par, many parents are prepared to pay a huge premium for private education with its promise of exceptional standards.
With school fees at the equivalent price of a house or a ocean going yacht, parents demand the very best. Fusion LMS serve the aspirations of discerning schools, parents and deserving learners at all socio economic levels.

Fusion LMS – Aligned to the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement CAPS
Both public and private schools are required by Umalusi to comply with the content and question standards set by CAPS.
Fusion LMS Helps Recording and Reporting of Learner’s Performance as Per Caps Requirements
Records of learner performance should provide evidence of the learner’s conceptual progression within a grade and her/his readiness to progress or promote to the next grade.
Records of learner performance should also be used to verify the progress made by teachers and learners in the teaching and learning process.
These include report cards, parents’ meetings, school visitation days, parent teacher conferences, phone calls, letters, class or school newsletters, etc. Teachers in all grades report in percentages against the subjects
Fusion LMS Automates CAPS Assessments.
CAPS require that classroom assessments should be both informal and formal
INFORMAL OR DAILY ASSESSMENT
Assessment for learning has the purpose of continuously collecting information on a learner’s achievement that can be used to improve their learning and to inform planning for teaching.
Informal assessment is a daily monitoring of learners’ progress. Informal assessment should be used to provide feedback to the learners from learning activities taking place in the classroom. Learners or teachers can mark these assessment tasks.
Assessment in the National Curriculum Statement Grades R – 12 comprises School-Based Assessment and Practical Assessment Tasks for certain subjects offered in the Further Education and Training Phase and a final end-of-year examination.
Examples of formal assessments include tests, examinations, case studies, oral or written presentations practical tasks, projects, oral case studies presentations, demonstrations, performances
Practical assessment tasks
The Practical Assessment Tasks marks counts significantly toward of the end-of year examination mark for many subjects.
Fusion LMS Engages the Teacher and the Learner in a Continuous Feedback Loop
LMS platform creates Learner and lecturer feedback in real-time and is a early diagnostic tool for learner performance.
Formal internal assessments combined with continuous informal assessments provide an early indication of which students might be high risk cases in certain modules, in order to ensure that the required help and support is provided early enough
Four purposes for assessment namely:
Diagnostic assessment, thus for the purpose of determining suitable support or remedial actions
Formative assessment, thus assessment for learning
Summative assessment, thus assessment of learning
Thus, assessment for grading is only one of the foci of assessment practice and the guiding and encouraging of sound approaches to effective learning is of equal relevance.
