Frequently Asked Questions

Elite Coder is the first formalized assessment in Singapore issued by Singapore Science Centre Global and MangoSTEEMS, in partnership with EduSTEEMS Malaysia.

The assessment is designed to map student’s mastery of coding fundamentals at 3 different levels – basic, intermediate, and advanced. The assessment has been developed based on CSTA K–12 Computer Science Standards, an internationally recognized set of standards outlining the skills and knowledge students need to grow and thrive in the digital world.

Upon completing each assessment level, students will receive a scorecard indicating their level of proficiency and a e-certification awarded by Singapore Science Centre Global.

CSTA standards are based on industry best practices, so students who learn to code using these standards will be better prepared for future careers in computer science. By learning industry-standard coding practices at a young age, students will be better equipped to succeed in college, internships, and jobs in the technology industry.

In summary, coding standards such as CSTA for K-12 students are important because they provide consistency, quality, collaboration, and industry relevance in coding practices. By following these standards, students can become better coders and more successful in their future careers.

The Elite Coder program uses the CodeMonkey platform. CodeMonkey is an AWARD-WINNING online platform that teaches kids real coding languages like CoffeeScript and Python. Children and teenagers learn block-based and text-based coding through an engaging game-like environment.

Elite Coder is a 3-level certification program. Students will need to take the Basic, Intermediate and Advanced assessments before being awarded Certified Elite Coder certification. 

Edusteems Malaysia works with a network of authorised training partners to provide preparatory courses to ensure that students are familiar with the content covered under Elite Coder assessment. The assessments will also be conducted at the venue of the authorised training partners.

There is no time limit on how long the student needs to take to complete the whole certification. 

However, it is advisable to avoid delaying your child’s certification completion for an extended period of time (exceeding one year) as this can disrupt their progress.

The assessment for all levels will take one hour. Assessment including MCQ (Multi-Choice Question) and Quiz (Challenges). The assessment will be conducted at the premise of the authorised training partners.

Coding Olympics only covers topics of the Elite Program Basic level. For students who have attended Coding Olympics preparatory lessons, they may skip the basic level training and attempt the assessment based on the recommendation of the authorised training partners. Training is still required for the Intermediate and Advanced levels before attempting any related assessments.

Yes, we will charge MYR200 for each assessment level.
