Schoolchildren in Bahrain to complete continuous assessments

Schoolchildren in Bahrain will be expected to complete continuous assessments instead of regular testing, it has been announced.

Teachers will be marking assignments given to students online and keep a record of the grades achieved in order to ensure they can pass onto higher grades next year.

Schools, kindergartens and universities have been closed in Bahrain since February 26, and are set to remain shut until further notice.

Education Minister, Dr. Majid bin Ali Al-Nuaimi, approved an edict regulating remote learning and assessments last week.

To help with home learning, the Ministry of Education has unveiled a number of tools in recent weeks.

These include an online service that uses Microsoft Teams and Office 365 to help teachers interact with their students.
Eight hours of lessons are being broadcast on Bahrain TV Channel 2 (sports channel) too.

Plus, the Southern Governorate has donated a number of laptops to students to help with remote learning.
