Pacific Education: Outsourcing the development of examination papers

Suva

For many Pacific island countries, the development of examination papers for its high-stakes national examinations is usually outsourced by their education ministries to subject experts in their tertiary institutions. Last year proved a challenge as several of these experts were repatriated to their homeland because of COVID-19.

EQAP, which already undertakes such work every year with the South Pacific Form Seven Certificate (SPFSC) countries and the smaller Pacific nations that do not have their own tertiary institutions, quickly responded to ensure these education ministries were supported with high quality examination papers and scoring rubrics.
