Field Trials for PILNA2021 (PNG, Solomon Islands)

Add to Calendar 2020-11-27 00:14:27 2020-11-27 00:14:27 Field Trial for PILNA2021 FIELD trial for the next cycle of the Pacific's largest regional education assessment, the Pacific Islands Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (PILNA), begins in Papua New Guinea on September 8. The trial follows the virtual training of each of the 13 participating country's PILNA coordinator in August. After the training, these coordinators were required to train their team of school coordinators and test supervisors. These three roles, largely undertaken by education officers and serving teachers, are critical to effectively administering PILNA. PILNA, which was first administered in 2012, is administered at the Year 4 and Year 6 levels to gain a snapshot of students' proficiency in the fundamental skills of literacy and numeracy after four and six years of formal education. This was the main thrust of the assessment when it was first conceived. However, by the third iteration in 2018, the assessment proved to be of even greater value as it had incorporated contextual questionnaires for students, teachers and school leaders.

FIELD trials for the Pacific's largest regional education assessment, the Pacific Islands Literacy and Numeracy Assessment (PILNA), begins in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands on September 8. The two-day research trial is in preparation for the fourth cycle of PILNA. The trials in the confirmed 13 countries will be conducted through a virtual platform. These follow the training of each country's PILNA national coordinators last month. After the training, these coordinators are required to train their team of school coordinators, who then train their respective test supervisors.
