image of Examination Systems in Small States

This publication is based on the content of a panCommonwealth workshop in Barbados in 1996. Participants looked at issues such as: personnel and infrastructure; international recognition and national priorities; innovative ways of testing; using technology to improve efficiency. Examination Systems in Small States deals with the provision of examinations in small states. It presents a conceptual framework and discusses models for the administration and provision of examinations at the end of the secondary cycle.




This book is one of the products of a Commonwealth Secretariat project which was initiated within the framework of the Secretariat's longstanding concern with education in small states. The project was conceived in 1994, and included among its highlights a pan-Commonwealth workshop in Barbados two years later. The workshop was attended by over 50 people concerned with examinations systems in Commonwealth countries, and included officers responsible for examinations in small states in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe and the South Pacific.
