SEAMEO Voctech held a virtual opening ceremony of the In-Country Training Programme for Cambodia on Assessing Knowledge: Constructing Written Tests yesterday.
Under Secretary of State of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of Cambodia, Kol Pheng Vadhana and SEAMEO Voctech Centre Director Alias bin Haji Abu Bakar were present, joined by programme facilitator Noorhayati Cynthia binti Abdullah and SEAMEO Voctech management officers. The curated training by SEAMEO Voctech offers a concise three-day online course, aiming to hone the mastery of 33 participants in assessing their learners’ knowledge.
The participants comprise curriculum facilitators, technical teachers, supervisors and government personnel of various specialisations including educational management, civil engineering, agronomy and business management from Cambodia.
Alias said, “This in-country training programme has been designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to construct reliable, valid, and usable written test items that will assess their learners’ achievement of the cognitive performance objectives that make up the programme.”
By the end of the course, the centre hopes to have successfully strengthened the participants’ capabilities in developing assessment instruments (written tests) that could measure their learners’ mastery of knowledge relevant to their specialised fields.
