Effective assessment is vital if we are to improve learning and teaching in the classrooms of the future. It promotes learning and helps our children achieve their full potential in every way. CIE has worked in this regard with various private and public schools. CIE assessment training and methodology ensures that information about how a pupil is progressing should be clear, succinct and readily understood by everyone. It is crucial that we not only simplify the system, but also reduce the burden for teachers and ensure that what is produced is more useful for parents.
