    Introduction

    iCGPA is an integrated mechanism for assessing and reporting of students’ development and performance as well as learning gains of their ethics, knowledge and abilities. The reporting illustrates attainment of attributes outlined in the six student aspirations stipulated in the Malaysian Education Blueprint (Higher Education) 2015-2025 as well as the eight domains of learning outcomes listed in the Malaysian Qualifications Framework. It is an integrated assessment mechanism that is aimed to assist various stakeholders in making decisions or planning for improvement. The purpose of this mechanism is to drive development and alignment in curriculum design, delivery and assessment at programme level and at course level focussing on student’s learning experience towards development of a holistic and balanced human being.

    Local Transportation

    The Peninsula Malaysia transport network is diverse with extensive roadways stretching over 63,445km, including 1,630km of expressways. Its main highway extends over 800km, from the Thai border all the way to Singapore.

    Buses and taxis are most popular form of transportation. Express buses and regional buses connect many towns and cities to each other. Buses connecting towns and cities charge fares according to the distance covered.

    Taxi service is the most widely and easily available form of transport. City taxies operate by meter and may be hired from taxi stands, hailed by roadside or through a radiophone paging system. There are also minivan-type taxis for carrying larger parties.

    Light Rail Transit (LRT) and KL Monorail provide inner-city public transportation for Kuala Lumpur, serving businesses, hotels and shopping districts, and also major parts of greater Kuala Lumpur. Fares are more affordable than taxis and will link-up with other LRT and train networks at KL Sentral.
