Progress in amendments to classroom-based assessment

CHANGES in the curriculum are being carried out at the USP, says Doctor Ishwar Lingam.

Speaking at a series of seminars on education, he said the changes would enable graduates to have suitable attributes and secure a bright future.

He said at USP last week a major reform in the case of the Fiji education system had to do with the introduction of classroom-based assessment.

Dr Lingam, a lecturer in education at USP's School of Education, said training on all reforms must be provided in the teacher education curriculum afforded to beginning teachers.

"The teacher education programme must be responsive to emerging changes, ideas and issues related to teacher education and school work," he said.

"This applies not only to the teacher education programs but also to all other programs of study in any institution."
