New Assessment System

Students and teachers at Model School in Islamabad are finding it difficult to adjust to the new assessment system and examination schedule introduced for classes 1 to 8.
According to the schedule that aims to bring uniformity among the private and federal schools of the capital, the academic session will now end just before the summer vacations.
Although it might be good for students as they wouldn’t have any burden of homework during the vacations, it has affected their results of the first term and in some instances also the second.
A teacher said that they were not able to cover the syllabus and that too in a new way, also 60% of the assessment papers are now in objective form and the students have to memorize the whole chapters including the poetry of Hali and Iqbal.
A student pointed out that Multiple Choice Question made cheating easier, “Now we only have to tell each other the number instead of dictating the whole answer to a question”.
However, Rafiq Tahir, Director Colleges and Training at the Federal Education Directorate said that the new system Is running smoothly, we have not received any complaints from teacher or students.
