The Ghana Education Service has passed a directive to heads of basic schools not to organise end-of-term examinations for the students in a circular.
In the circular issued by Deputy Director-General of GES, Dr Kwabena Bempah, to the regional directors of education stated that, class exercises and class tests should be used to assess the students for the current term.
GES is of the view that, students from kindergarten to Junior High School (JHS) level are to undergo “recovery learning” after sitting in the house for so long due to the enforced Covid-19 break.
“Head teachers and teachers are to use class exercises and class tests to assess students/pupils,” a section of the circular said, as quoted by 3news.
“Management further wishes to inform all District Directors and School Heads that the existing arrangement for stationery use at the District Offices, which is to be deducted from the schools’ capitation grant allocation remains in force.”
