Basseterre: St. Kitts, Tuesday, October 18, 2022: Principals across primary and secondary schools in the Federation participated in a Key-stage Assessment Learning (KAL) sensitization session on Tuesday, October 18 at the St. Kitts and Nevis Customs and Excise Division Conference Room.
The purpose of this session was outlined by the Director of the Curriculum Development Unit Mrs. Amanda Edmead explained
“We are here today, reporting to primary and secondary principals on the pilot of KAL 2022. This is the first opportunity they would have of getting an idea of what the reporting for KAL will look like at a school level. Principals were apprised of what the reporting templates will look like for each of their schools and to provide feedback on the process going forward.”
Principal of the Newton Ground Primary school, Mrs. Michelle Rochester –Woodley expressed appreciation for the information shared at the session
“This workshop is quite appropriate because we are getting information that is very vital to the upcoming KAL 2023. We need to know exactly how we can help our students. During this workshop we were able to discuss the challenges and issues,” stated Mrs. Rochester-Woodley.
KAL was piloted in the primary schools across grades 4 and 6 on June 07, 2022. It replaces the Test of Standards and focuses on assessments that assist the Curriculum Development Unit to align subject offerings and content with the long term needs of students.
