Eval­u­a­tion tests okay but not for po­lit­i­cal mileage

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

As soon as the min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion banned mock ex­ams spon­sored by Si­aya Gov­er­nor Cor­nel Rasanga, there has been dis­ar­ray as to whether or not the tests should be done. The thing is, teach­ers should be al­lowed to eval­u­ate their stu­dents and make ap­pro­pri­ate rec­om­men­da­tions there­after. Eval­u­a­tion tests have been there for long and do­ing away with them will not of­fer a longterm so­lu­tion. There are many ways of eval­u­at­ing stu­dents, how­ever, coun­ties should de­sist from spon­sor­ing ex­ams for po­lit­i­cal mileage.
