The Ghana Education Service (GES) has sent an important message to headmasters in basic schools in Ghana. In a letter issued by the Acting Director of Schools and Instructions Division, Prince Agyemang-Duah, he made it clear that GES is requesting data of all Teachers and learners in all basic schools in Ghana.
The information of all students and each teacher in basic schools must be submitted in an online form (Google form) provided.
The deadline for the submission is Thursday, 30th November, 2023
“Management of the Ghana Education Service (GES) as part of measures to improve teaching and learning in schools across the country is collecting data on teachers and learners in all Basic Schools via google form.
Regional Directors are kindly requested to share the link for the data collection and ensure that all Heads of Basic Schools within your jurisdiction fill and submit it by close of day Thursday 30th November, 2023.”
The GES’s commitment to maintaining high standards in educational assessment is epitomized by this meticulous data collection process.
This comprehensive and accurate dataset will enable GES to analyze and evaluate pupil and school performance effectively.
The information will be used to create informative reports and insights that can further improve the education system’s quality control efforts.
This initiative underscores the GES’s dedication to providing quality education and the vital role that data collection plays in achieving this mission.
This is not the first time GES is requesting date from teachers and students. Few weeks ago, GES took the data of all JHS two students. This, according to sources would help GES track all non-final year students who took part in the 2023 BECE.
As you already know, it is against the laws of WAEC for a non-final year student to partake in either BECE or WASSCE.
