The standard based curriculum has brought a revamp in the examination structure at the primary level. In light of this, the Executive Secretary of the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment has indicated that there would be an item bank to be used by teachers to assess learners.
“We are going to develop an item bank which is reliable and valid”, Dr. Hamid Armah, emphasized. He went further to explain that the item bank would be uploaded online to be used for the assessment.
“We will load the item bank on our website. We will share the details with the Ghana Education Service.”
The speaker indicated that the process is not yet complete and would be ready by next term to be used by teachers to assess the learner.
