About this Course
A day in a school teacher's life is rarely without any assessment-related activity - preparing, conducting or evaluating class tests, quizzes, monthly tests, or term-end exams find a place in a teacher's schedule by default. Recent research in classrooms show that most teachers typically spend one-third or more of their professional time in assessment-related activities! Now that's significant amount of time!
Assessments are crucial to the development of sound educational programmes, anywhere. Driving high-quality in assessments has become a pressing educational priority, given the growing focus on outcome-led teaching and learning, as outlined in the National Education Policy (NEP 2020) and espoused by various academic experts.
