Tanzania Rolling Out Form IV Pre-tests
Tanzania Daily News recently wrote an article, Tanzania: Provisional Form Four Tests in Pipeline, describing the government’s plan to roll out provisional tests designed to help students and teachers assess which topics they should spend more time on before the real national examinations. The program could be beneficial, though I wonder how detailed the feedback will be. Form IV students have been doing mock examinations at the regional level for years, though they only receive scores by subject. Perhaps the schools will receive detailed reports breaking down performance on each question like they’ve started releasing for the national examinations (example for Civics 2013)?
