Although nobody enjoys having to sit a test, formal assessments are an important tool for teaching staff. By gauging a student’s individual understanding of what they have been learning, teachers can identify gaps in knowledge to help to structure on-going academic efforts. From a personal point of view, this can also act as motivation for the leaner. Students from Mukamusaba Conservation Club in Livingstone sat an assessment test last week, which covered the topics they had learned in the previous weeks, including: the wildlife trade, poaching and species extinction.
We hope that the students have done well in the test and that their results will encourage them to keep up the good work they have achieved so far this year.
