By Zoila Palma: The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many challenges including learning assessments in the education sector.
The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) has issued a statement saying that it is aware of the many challenges across the region and the impact of COVID-19.
With regard to the volcanic eruption in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, CXC says that it stands in solidarity with the people of the nation.
“As a result, CXC stands ready to listen and to engage in dialogue with our critical stakeholders across the education landscape. CXC also recognises that some candidates across the region, based on their particular circumstances, may not be ready for assessment during the June/July 2021 examinations cycle,” the council explained.
Therefore, the council informs that it has reduced the School Based Assessment (SBA) requirements by as much as 50 percent in some subjects.
The council says that students can find this information in the SBA student handbook that can be found on the CXC website.
Candidates for CXC and CAPE exams will also have access to broad topics to be assessed on paper 02.
Their respective Ministries of Education will be provided with the topics.
