Parental involvement a must in student’s examination process

 

Ms. Sharon Giles, Head of EAS

Nerissa Golden and Bennette Roach returned from Barbados where they attended the first one-day seminar for journalists, which took place at Alexander Court on Monday, March 5, 2012.

Both stressed and reiterated the call made by several officials that  Parents must be more active in the education life of their children especially as they prepare to take their external examinations from the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC)..

Ms. Nerissa Golden

Sharon Giles, Head of Examination Administration Security (EAS) said in the 2011 exams four territories did not submit their Student Based Assessments (SBAs) before the deadline and so thousands of students were ungraded in the applicable subjects.

“CXC does not negotiate on our deadlines,” Giles told reporters. “The SBAs are a critical component of the final grade for students and so submission of the SBAs must be done within the time allotted.”

Mr. Bennette Roach

Students in St. Kitts & Nevis, Barbados, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago were affected by the delay in submission. The officials said parents should check to make sure they know what the deadlines are and ensure that schools are submitting the work on time.

Giles noted that CXC is presently investigating one school who submitted bogus SBAs from years prior as the students had never conducted any SBAs.

Supervisors and Invigilators workshop

The following day March 6, two persons in Dr. Clarice Barnes and  Ms. Donnette Allen attended a workshop for supervisors and invigilators who monitor  the annual CXC examinations. The facilitator reported that the workshop discussed in detail the CXC manuals for supervisors and invigilators.

“…this year we have a manual that we provide to the supervisors and invigilators and we actually did cover the manual in detail but some of the areas and some of the things the supervisors are expected to do before the examinations …as well as areas that the supervisors are expected to do after the examinations,” he added, mentioning also, “we covered in detail the different aspects in the examinations.”

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the
    internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider
    worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side
    effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
    Thanks
