The Education Minister and Member of Parliament for Manhyia South, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has revealed that discussions are still ongoing to determine the best mode of assessing academic work. “There are varied options that have come up for discussions at the stakeholder meetings”, he said.
“We won’t wait and be confronted with something we haven’t thought through. We have a standing committee chaired by Professor Yankah, working with the universities in coming up with the alternatives. Somebody brought a paper from one university that said we should get into the online assessment. How would I accept the online assessment when I know some persons cannot come online?”
“There is no public school, conducting any exam online. Some universities in rolling out their virtual learning are doing a continuous assessment. The only university that is advanced in that is KNUST that said they will do mid-semester and others. We have to assess that based upon what really happened and if students were left out,” he further said.
What do you make of this?
