Lecturers at the Asante Mampong Campus of the Akenten Appiah-Menka University of Skills Training and Entrepreneurial Development (AAMUSTED) have undergone a day’s workshop to hone their skills in the construction and proper use of standard test items during examinations.
They also trained on the New National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA) Lesson Plan, with a focus on the on-campus and off-campus teaching practice supervision. Scores of lecturers attended the workshop, organised by the Faculty of Education and General Studies (FEGS) of the University, on July 6, 2022.
The Acting Principal of the Campus, Professor Emmanuel Dartey, chairing the opening session, observed that the workshop was an important one with the potential to imbue the participants with necessary techniques for constructing examination questions to prevent the widespread repetition of questions during examinations. He was happy that the workshop would equip the lecturers adequately to ensure the proper assessment of students’ performances.
In that regard, he encouraged the participants to pay rapt attention to the various presentations and ask questions when necessary to achieve optimal knowledge from the workshop. He assured them that the Management of AAMUSTED would continue to create opportunities for them to maintain themselves at the top of trending knowledge in their areas of specialization so they could offer the best to students of the University.
The Resource Persons for the workshop were the Dean of FEGS, Dr. Benedict Osei-Owusu, Head of Department for Interdisciplinary Studies, Rev. Dr. George Oduro-Okyireh, and the Head of Department of Educational Studies, Mr. Kwadwo Oteng Akyina. The rest were Messrs. Robert Ampomah, Eric Twumasi, Samuel Gyampoh, and Emmanuel Kyei.
