Summary

"Assessing Student Learning in Africa emphasizes the importance of learning quality and offers concrete suggestions for improving educational assessment practices in Sub-Saharan Africa. It reviews four major areas of educational assessment: public examinations; national assessments; international assessments; and classroom assessments." "The authors focus on how these four types of assessment are used to monitor and evaluate learning, describe the differences between them, and analyze each one. They also make recommendations for using the different forms of assessment to enhance student learning."--BOOK JACKET.
