The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysia English As­sess­ment (MEA) pro­gramme helps stu­dents to master the English lan­guage so as to be more com­pet­i­tive and able to meet the em­ploy­ment needs of in­dus­tries.

Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Idris Ju­soh said the MEA pro­gramme launched by the min­istry met the qual­ity stan­dard, in line with the Com­mon Euro­pean Frame­work of Ref­er­ence (CEFR) and was highly recog­nised, whereby the qual­i­fi­ca­tion at­tained by stu­dents could be used not only in Malaysia but world­wide.

“The MEA is a game changer in mas­ter­ing English for col­lege and univer­sity stu­dents in Malaysia.

“It has two com­po­nents, namely the for­mal com­po­nent which is as­sess­ment in a for­mal man­ner, while the other is done is an in­for­mal man­ner, where learn­ing is in real sit­u­a­tions, that is, the work en­vi­ron­ment or task-based as­sess­ment.”
