Assessment

  • National Education Assessment

    A National Education Assessment (NEA) is designed to describe the achievement of students in a curriculum area aggregated to provide an estimate of the achievement level in the education system as a whole at a particular age or grade level. NEA in Bhutan is a periodic exercise carried out at regular interval in Class III, VI and in IX.

    Competency Based Assessment

    Initiated in 2011, CBA was focused on measuring holistic development of students as one of the key initiative taken to achieve the aspirations for the education system. It is a form of assessment that is derived from a specified set of learning outcomes which very clearly states both the general and specific competencies (knowledge, skills, values and attitude, that assessors, students and stakeholders can make reasonably objective judgements with respect to student achievement of these competencies that equip them to move to the next competency level and prepare them for life and the world of work (BCSEA, 2015).
