Assessments

Overview

Teachers at the primary level will employ a broad range of strategies to obtain information about their students’ skills and understanding and range from asking questions during the lesson to giving a formal formative class test. Assessment motivates learning as students become aware of their strengths and weaknesses and make necessary learning effort to improve their performance. Assessment drives instructions and learning, besides informing parents and learners about their performance. Teachers can then restructure their teaching strategies to optimize learning in class.

Types of assessment
Formative
To establish whether learners have met the learning outcome or are on track to do so. These are short and medium-term assessments

We implement formative diagnosis to identify why learners do not understand or have difficulty with some topic or idea and to use this information to take appropriate action to correct mistakes or misconceptions.
Formative evaluation is implemented to determine whether the action following the diagnosis has resolved the learner’s difficulties
Summative
To 'sum up' what learners have achieved. These are long term assessments.

Summative evaluation is used to establish what general level of ability the learner has attained in terms of understanding, selecting, and applying the knowledge and skills they have been taught. This kind of assessment is used as a means of reporting to other establishments and to parents on the actual attainments of learners.
