Inspiring Matriculation through Performance Assessment and Curriculum Transformation
The Division of Education, Research and Technology (DERTech) proudly presents I.M.P.A.C.T. (Inspiring Matriculation through Performance Assessment and Curriculum Transformation), a long-term performance enhancement project that is geared toward improving students’ competencies thereby unveiling their full potential.
The recently concluded 2022 Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) examination resulted in 774 of Tobago’s students (78.7%) scoring less than 50%. This apparent decline in performance necessitates a systematic and strategic approach to improving students’ performance thereby influencing higher levels of matriculation.
I.M.P.A.C.T will replace the traditional vacation program and will target the following three tiers of students:
a) Those who scored 0-30% at the 2022 SEA exams
b) Those who scored 31-50% at the 2022 SEA exams
c) Prospective Standard 5 students who are deemed at risk based on their Mathematics and English Language scores at their End of Year Exam.
Sessions will commence on Monday 25th July and resume at the beginning of each term of the academic year 2022/2023 in the first instance. Cycle 1 will run for four weeks until Friday 19th August, 2022 between the hours of 9:00am to 2:00pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Face to face instruction will be conducted at 20 centres island wide with lunches to be provided at each session. Registration begins at 12 noon on Monday 18th July, 2022 and closes at 12:00 noon on Thursday 21st July, 2022.
I.M.P.A.C.T strategically focuses on improving the holistic (academic and co-curricular) development of all learners in the education sector through quality and equitable teaching and learning strategies that will unveil learning potential and provide varied learning experiences.
