SIE Professional Development activity on "Setting Exam Papers" was successfully held on July 20th, 2019. Testing what the students are taught is important part of teaching profession. Usually teachers pick something form the book/notebook and follow a pattern question in exams. More than often these questions expect students to write lengthy paragraphs which deviates from the objective of assessing their knowledge of given subject. Setting an "exam and testing: setting the right questions" needs some skills and level of understanding of what to test and how to test. The workshop taught the participating teachers how to set exam papers in a way that makes exam and test papers more authentic and more reflective of teaching and learning classroom.
