UNIT 2. COMPETENCE BASED APPROACH
The overarching objective for assessment is to achieve a coherent set of approaches to assessment, at school, district and national levels, to support learners’ progression in learning, through the full range of techniques which are fair, valid and equitable, and to complement the priorities of the competence-based curriculum. In other words, assessment is an integral part of the national curriculum and an essential element of the teaching and learning process. To achieve above-mentioned assessment in CBC, in addition to summative assessment, the teachers need to use formative or continuous assessment for daily monitoring of learning.
