Through a recent workshop, MEC and MNEC education teams reviewed the purpose and goals of both formative and summative assessment within the primary classroom, discussed the steps in integrating formative assessment into classroom practice and analyzed formative assessment frameworks. The focus on assessment complements MNEC’s system strengthening priorities in improving learning outcomes at Mon National Schools.
