The new assessment system applied to first-year secondary students will be moved to secondary-second grade during the upcoming academic year 2019/2020.
As of the 2018/2019 academic year, the Ministry of Education has implemented a new secondary school assessment system, which began in the first grade of high school. The first grade is experimental, and students are awarded the highest grades in both the second and third secondary grades.
Beginning with the 2019/2020 academic year, the revised system will transfer to the second grade, and the Ministry of Education is preparing for the start of the school year, preparing new additional content on the Egyptian Knowledge Bank.
In the following lines, Masrawi will check information on the second grade under the new assessment system, following the statements of the Minister of Education:
– Paper textbooks will not be printed for this class.
– Students use the "tablet" device in the studio, and carry textbooks, as the first secondary.
– Students pay annual insurance for the tablet, which is estimated at 100 pounds.
– The Ministry of Education is working to put together additional content of educational "videos, films, articles", following the curriculum of the second grade section, and available to the Egyptian Knowledge Bank in collaboration with major companies such as: Discovery, Britannica, Nahdet Misr , and others, to help students more From understanding.
– No change of curriculum, but additional content adjusted based on learning outcomes.
– A fork will be for the scientific or literary division only, and will cancel the division to "science sciences and sports science."
– Students in the Science Division will study subjects: Arabic, first foreign language, second foreign language, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and mechanics during the first and second semesters.
– Students in the Literary Division will study subjects: Arabic, first foreign language, second foreign language, mathematics, history, psychology, philosophy and geography during the first and second semesters.
– The cumulative exam system starts this year.
– Students take 4 electronic exams during the year, with the highest marks of two exams.
– All exams measure students' understanding of learning outcomes in each subject and therefore students need a new preparation method.
– No private lessons are needed, as the questions depend on measuring the level of understanding and not remembering.
– The exams are done with an open book system (through tables).
– The Ministry of Education trains secondary teachers on the new system.
– The system of coordinating recognition in universities is ongoing.
