Al Azhar Syifa Budi Cibinong School (AASCB) organised a large academic testing event on 16 September 2023. Entitled ‘TryOut Akbar 2023’, it was attended by more than 2,000 grade VI elementary school students from the Greater Bogor and Depok regions. With the theme “Achieve Your Golden and Bright Future”, the primary objective of the event was to empower students with cutting-edge techniques, enabling them to assess competencies in comprehensive ways in order to face their Elementary School Exams (AS). Moreover, the event aimed to foster connections among students from Greater Bogor and Depok regions, encouraging inter-school relationships within these areas.
mySecondTeacher’s Jelajah Ilmu collaborated with Acer Indonesia to provide it’s ‘Competency Evaluation’ platform, which served as the primary digital test taking and report generation service. The platform served and managed over 5,000 quizzes over the span of a few hours, and even automatically identified strengths and weaknesses of the students based on answers that they provided.
Students eagerly participated in the event, embracing the chance to utilise the innovative technology provided by AP’s Competency Evaluation platform. 2,000+ students attempted the exam and generated diagnostic reports in real time. With its reliable performance, Jelajah Ilmu’s platform effectively meets schools’ requirements for such online tests.
mySecondTeacher’s Jelajah Ilmu is committed to implementing the principles of the Merdeka curriculum, which aims to enhance accessibility to education and establish an effective learning environment for all students. The Education, Culture, Research, and Technology Ministry introduced the Merdeka curriculum in February of 2022 to improve the learning process, students’ competence and teaching quality. The curriculum prioritises critical thinking, creativity, problem solving abilities and character development among students. Traditionally, education has heavily relied on memorization and exam-driven methods. Jelajah Ilmu recognizes the need for a more holistic approach to education that provides students with essential life skills and values towards a more experiential and inquiry-based approach.
Acer and Jelajah Ilmu are committed to providing students with innovative educational solutions in Indonesia that empowers them to succeed in the 21st century.
