For a success implementation of the New Curriculum System, the assessment system of pupils in the lower primary should be well organized termly.
The end of term examination is a submissive assessment system which should consist of a sample of the knowledge and skills learners have acquired in the whole of the term. The test types and assessment task for a class must be careful chosen to reflect the learners age and ability.
However, in kindergarten KG 1and Basic School BS 2, the assessment test must be designed in such a way that it can administered during a one-on-one interview with the pupil. This is because most learners cannot read and write and therefore makes it difficult for the teacher to get accurate assessment when using pencil and paper test type.
Again, when initialising in Basic School BS 3, the assessment should also be partly pencil and paper test type and partly interviewed test type task. The end-of-term test for the term 3 should be composed of item/question based on the specific objectives studied over the three terms using a difference weighting system so as to reflect the importance of the work done in each term in appropriate proportions.
Finally, the new School-Based Assessment SBA system is important for raising learners school performance. For this reasons, the 60 mark for the SBA will be scaled to 50 in schools. The total marks for the end of term test will also be scaled to 50 before adding the School-based Assessment SBA Mark and end of term examination marks to determine learners and of them resource.
