Private schools in Bahrain told to implement public school assessment methods

With schools shutting their doors in February, and many exams cancelled, it’s a strange time for students across Bahrain, and even the world.

Public schools in the Kingdom have instead adopted a continuous assessment method so students can progress between grades and schools despite the closures.

And now private schools in Bahrain have been told to adopt the same method.

His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa has directed the Ministry of Education to implement the formula in the coming weeks.

This means private school students will be assessed based on assignments and portfolios.

HRH Premier made the directive based on the appeals of parents of students in some private schools to reassure them during the coronavirus pandemic.
