This term, Howard has run a Zoom course for Zambian teachers. One of the tasks was to create a spreadsheet to monitor progress of pupil over the past three years. Teachers listed marks for literacy, numeracy and IT , found averages and compared girls and boys.
One teacher reported: “The spreadsheet is very helpful it has made me to realize the academic progression and efforts that learner make.
I will use the spreadsheet UpTo grade nine because, the learners are still at the school in grade 8 this year and next they will progress to grade 9.
How I wish I was doing this much earlier, it would have helped me to evaluate my teaching form the time I joined my current school. Never the less this is my starting point and I hope it will help me to evaluate my teaching process.”
Another noticed that IT results had improved since 2020 and said, “This can be attributed to the availability of computers received by the school in that year. Teachers are able to use them to teach ICT.”
