Continuous assessment in post-secondary teacher training in Ghana: a case study evaluation
Akyeampong, Albert Kwame (1997) Continuous assessment in post-secondary teacher training in Ghana: a case study evaluation. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The importance of and preference for assessing learning outcomes using a variety of assessment techniques and containing data from many sources, rather than the sole dependence on the one-shot examination, has long been recognised worldwide. This has led to major assessment policy changes in both developed and developing countries. In Ghana, this change has led to the introduction of continuous assessment at all levels of secondary schooling and post-secondary teacher training, to operate in parallel with external examinations. Although in Ghana evaluation studies of continuous assessment have been conducted for the secondary school level, none has so far been done for the post-secondary teacher training level.
