Following points are highlighted for clarity related to Grade-5 Assessment please:
|1.||The decision of grade-5 assessment in Private Sector Education has been taken under the direction of Elementary & Secondary Education Department Govt .of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The same assessment was conducted two times during the year 2015 and 2016 in public sector schools. The papers of the students were marked through OMR successfully.|
|2.||Due to unawareness, so many fears have been raised especially by the private sector. In this regard it is once again reminded that this is assessment not examination. Hence there is no pass or fail of students on the basis of this assessment.|
