The Physical, Sports and Co-curricular Activities Assessment (PAJSK) is one of the components that is assessed in the Primary School Standard Curriculum (KSSR), made compulsory by the Ministry of Education (MOE) Malaysia. PAJSK is an assessment that is required for all primary and secondary school students. It was developed as an online system to enable the responsible parties (teachers) to input data easily and efficiently. PAJSK was implemented in secondary schools starting year 2012 and for primary schools in 2014.
Unlike the Student Module under the School Management System (SPS), namely the Student Database Application (APDM), the PAJSK system focuses not only on student data. This assessment involves reports on student involvements and activities. It encompasses 3 basic assessment components which are SEGAK, co-curricular and extra co-curricular activities.
Participation in these 3 components are a part of the teaching and learning process. The significance of these activities are equivalent to curriculum activities in the classroom because of its complementary role in teaching and learning of the students as well as developing human capital (students) who are all-rounders in cognitive, affective and psychomotor aspects.
