Using Assessment for Teaching and Learning

Assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning, helping to identify whether the goals of education are being met. Together, MEC and MNEC are exploring methods for strengthening the use of assessments as a tool for improving learning and teaching.

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.
