All affiliated schools must undertake self-assessment on SQAA Portal every year between April 1 to December 31. The self-assessment submitted by the school on the SQAA Portal would be valid for a period of one year.
Standard levels have been put together in different areas of school functioning such as curriculum, pedagogy, assessment, infrastructure, inclusive practices, human resources, management and governance, leadership, and beneficiary satisfaction.
