· Speech title:Implementation of Education Performance Test for Special Education Visual Impairment Students in Malaysia
· Abstract: Assessment in the learning process aims to gather information on the level of mastery of students on a skill to be assessed. Each student has different abilities and ways of a skill. Knowledge and skills that are subjective and do not focus on cognitive ability should be assessed through performance tests because these tests can determine whether students have mastered a skill or not. Researchers have made observations on the implementation of performance tests on skills in the teaching of physical education in schools. Because skills in physical education involve a lot of psychomotor and affective movements, performance testing is the right choice to assess a student’s level of mastery. The traditional test with the use of pencil and paper in answering questions is an irrelevant assessment because these skills do not involve theory alone.

· Speech title:Quality Higher Education : Role of ChatGPT as an OpenAI Tool
· Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) is now a common agenda pursued in many industries. However, to what extent the use of OpenAI’s ChatGPT is not misused in the education domain has caused concern among academia. In the context of Sustainable Development Goals, Goal 4 is quality education. To ensure this, educators and learners have crucial roles to play to ensure the avoidance of unethical practices among learners in their learning journey. In the context of higher education, ChatGPT can form the role of either foe or friend for students. Therefore, in higher education, this is an intriguing issue that needs further investigation. As such, this presentation reviewed literature and empirical based studies to strengthen the notion of ChatGPT as either being a foe or friend for higher education. Using SCOPUS research database, peer-reviewed papers were identified using specific keywords and reviewed. The findings suggest various viewpoints from learners and educators’ perspectives. Students find ChatGPT as a friend that can assist them in their education and sidelining the detrimental impact on human/soft skills. Educators, on the other hand, consider ChatGPT as foe for students’ education as student contribution in learning is much overpowered by AI and leaving students as ‘unlearned’ and ‘unskilled’. Therefore, these inconclusive and contradicting viewpoints are discussed and recommendations are provided to embrace AI as friend while still recognising its role in overtaking human’s learning.
