UBEC Begins 2022 Assessment For Cross River Schools

The Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) has commenced the 2022 National Assessment of Learning Achievements in Basic Education (NALABE) for schools in Cross River State.

The Team Lead for 2022 NALABE in Cross River, Zipporah Panguru made this known on Wednesday in Calabar.

According to her, a three-day exercise will take place in selected public and private primary and junior secondary schools across the state to assess learners' performance.

She said the exercise would confirm whether or not the investment of the federal and state governments in the education section in Cross River State was advantageous.

She added that if the result came out positive, the government would invest more, and if not, it would adopt strategies to that effect.

"The students will be tested in four core subjects of English, Mathematics, Social studies and Basic science, however, this exercise is not for fault finding but to test the learner’s ability.

“80 schools have been selected in the state and the test will be administered to 30 learners from Primary 3 to 5 and those in JSS 2,” she explained.

Executive Chairman, Cross River Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Senator Stephen Odey said the NALABE became necessary to promote the development of the basic education sector.

Represented by SUBEB’s Director of Administration, Etta Inyang, Odey urged the field officers to conduct the exercise with diligence and see to it that the outcome is realistic and authentic.

“Your reports have to reflect the true position of things in the field, those who compromise will be hindering the development of the basic education sector in the state.

“NALABE is a feedback mechanism tool that will enable the government to address challenges where any in teaching and learning,” Odey advised.
