The EDMS’s Co cu Activity have added in session control (Morning, Afternoon, Night) for the activity offered to the students and teachers. The reason to add this control is to prevent teacher in charge wrongly select the activity session during creating student’s or staff’s activity.
To setup this function please follow the step as below:
Setup the co-curriculum activity description.
In actual fact that, some school is sending their students to attends some open competition held in school or any national level and those student that have being awarded during the competition shall received the credit in the activity that they are joining. The current input screen will be very tedious for user to input by identify activity to pick and credit into should be the activity with the highest mark ranked for the academic year.
With the Credit Transfer option build under Co cu Assessment module to enable school’s user to enter the participation/involvement and achievement marks to the selected Activity Group. Upon processing the Credit transfer grading process, system shall auto transfer the participation/involvement and achievement Marks to be credited into the same activity group that students joined with the highest mark awarded based on the total marks or highest marks on student activity position + attendance.
Followings are the guideline steps on how to start to enter Participation/Involvement & Achievement records via credit transfer option.

This is to ensure the participation/involvement and achievement marks enter via credit transfer option is crediting into student assessment marks based on same activity group that students joined with the highest mark awarded based on the total marks or highest marks on student activity position + attendance. To choose the option, please go to General Parameter ~ > General Setting.

Step 4: Run Credit Transfer Grading
After user already completed input the involvement & achievement co-curriculum mark, user may run credit transfer grading in order to credit marks into student assessment marks. To run this process, go to Co-curriculum Assessment Module Assessment~>Credit Transfer ~ > Credit Transfer Grading
Step 5: Verify Participation/Involvement & Achievement Mark credited into student assessment marks.

GPA and CGPA marks are auto computed by system when processing Assessment grading. However, user still allows to adjust the computed GPA and CGPA marks via Assessment –> Mark Adjustment option. The purpose is to allow CGPA marks to be accumulated from previous school for newly transfer -in students. Besides, user is also allowed to manually key in GPA and CGPA marks for past assessment years (ie before implementing Co-Co Assessment Module) for tracking and reporting purposes.
Due to this, Assessment grading process is now enhanced to cater for the following conditions:
1) NOT to OVERWRITE Adjusted GPA and CGPA marks and grade during Assessment Grading
The adjusted GPA and CGPA marks and grade will not be overwritten as long as the students are totally without any active activity records found in Assessment grading year. The activity records refer to student activity or attendance or participation/involvment or achievement or bonus marks.
i) Student A (Without activity)
- Key in marks adjustment (e.g GPA 90/ CGPA 90)
- Run assessment grading
- The marks that key in on marks adjustment still remains (e.g GPA 90/ CGPA 90) on the record even run assessment grading
2) To OVERWRITE Adjusted GPA and CGPA marks and grade during Assessment Grading
The adjusted GPA and CGPA marks and grade will be overwritten as long as there is ONE active record found for the students in Assessment grading year. The activity records refer to student activity or attendance or participation/involvment or achievement or bonus marks.
i) Student B (With activity)
- With assessment grading (e.g. GPA/CGPA is 60/60)
- Do mark adjustment (e.g. GPA/CGPA 80/80)
- Run grading, the marks pull back original marks (e.g. GPA/CGPA is 60/60)
ii) Student C (with participate, achievement only)
- Key in mark adjustment (e.g. GPA 80/ CGPA 80).
- Create (participate, achievement)
- Run grading and the result display (e.g. GPA 0/ CGPA 0).
iii) Student D (Bonus Marks)
- Key in mark adjustment (e.g. GPA 80/ CGPA 80).
- Create bonus marks record (3 Marks)
- Run grading and the result display (e.g. GPA 3/ CGPA 3).
System is enhanced to provide option for user to include or exclude co-curriculum CGPA marks accumulation for Transation level (ie Tingkatan Peralihan). If the CGPA marks accumulation is selected as “Yes”, meaning CGPA marks accumulation should only count from Form One till Form Six. On the other hand, if the CGPA marks accumulation is selected as “No”, meaning CGPA marks accumulation should count for the students’ whole schooling years attended including transition level. To do it, please click on the link General Setting – Field No. 17 for details.
For schools that intend to continuously include CGPA marks accumulation starting from Transition level, then the CGPA marks accumulated for each level shall remain unchanged. The CGPA marks will not be affected also for those schools that did not offer transition level but now set to exclude co-curriculum CGPA marks accumulation.
However, for those schools that had already included CGPA marks accumulated starting from Transition level but now intend to adjust CGPA marks accumulated from Form One onwards, assessment grading needs to be re-run starting from the first year of Co-curriculum Assessment Module implementation till the last academic year. This is to ensure that the CGPA marks accumulated for each level is correctly computed. Please also take note that if there is adjustment on accumulated GPA and CGPA marks previously shall be overwritten again after re-run assessment grading.
For better illustration, pls refer to the following examples:
Select “Exclude Tingkatan Peralihan From CGPA Computation” = NO.
Student name: Student A, after running assessment grading for each academic year with result:
2008(Peralihan A2) : 56.50(GPA) 56.50(CGPA)
2009(Tingkatan 1A) : 64.50(GPA) 60.50(CGPA)
CGPA for year 2009 is: 56.50(2008) + 64.50(2009)/2 = 60.50
Select “Exclude Tingkatan Peralihan From CGPA Computation” = Yes
Student name: Student B, after re-running assessment grading for each academic year with result:
2008(Peralihan A2) : 74.50(GPA) 0.00(CGPA)
2009(Tingkatan 1A) : 68.50(GPA) 68.50(CGPA)
CGPA: 68.50/1 = 68.50
In order to prevent a lengthy co-curriculum certificate printed especially due to many co-curriculum activities participated by the student in whole of his / her schooling year, we’d incorporated a print criteria ie [Print All Record] or [Print 1 till 5 record(s)] for user to select the number of co-curriculum record counts to be printed.
The co-curriculum activities records printed in co-curriculum certificatie are sectionized by activity type (ie Uniformed Group; Clubs and Society; Sports and Games and Additional Duties ) with achievement records printed as well. User is able to select not only the activity type and achievement records are required to be printed but also to limit the number of activities and achievement records to be printed. A maximum of 5 activities per activity type can be selected for printing and is ordered by the position ranking. For better understanding, we illustrate in the following example:
Activity Type : Clubs & Societies with print criteria selected = 3
Activities participated from 2007 – 2008
2006-2007 Games Stewards Naib Pengerusi
2007-2008 Games Stewards Pengerusi
2006-2007 Kelab Koir Bendahari
2007-2008 Kelab Slab Bendahari
2006-2007 Kelab Drama Bendahari
The records to be printed in the co-curriculum certificate is:
2007-2008 Games Stewards Pengerusi
2006-2007 Kelab Drama Bendahari
2006-2007 Kelab Koir Bendahari (As position rank is same as Kelab Slab, the printing shall be ordered by activity description)
In the event whereby the position ranking is the same, the next ordering is by co-curriculum description which is in alphabetical order. However, if only 2 activities participated, system will print 3 records with highest rank. If the position rank is the same, printing shall be ordered by activity description.

The co-curriculum bonus marks awarded to students are generated from the marks input in 2 sections, namely,
(1) Others / special position held like librarian, prefect, monitor
(2) Special award like NILAM
There is no limit on number of records created and marks awarded to a student on item (1) and (2) as mentioned above. However, different schools have different methods and practices on calculating the co-curriculum bonus mark during Assessment Grading which will affect the students’ GPA and CGPA.
In order to meet respective school’s requirement, Co-Co Assessment Module has provided 3 options for user to select and set up the co-curriculum bonus marks update. For better understanding, let’s illustrate in the following example.
Student A has been awarded with the following bonus marks:
Class Monitor – awarded 10 marks
School Librarian -awarded 5 marks
While running Assessment Grading, the Student A shall be awarded:
Option 1 – Select the highest bonus marks awarded = 10 bonus marks
Option 2 - Select Total Marks awarded ie (10 + 5) marks = 15 bonus marks
Option 3 - Select Total Marks with maximum limit as defined by user ,eg 10 Marks = 10 bonus marks
To setup maximum co-curriculum bonus mark awarded to student, please go to Co-Curriculum Assessment Module and click on the link General Parameter ~>General setting for details.
