What is Grade 3 MLP?
Monitoring Learners Progress (MLP) is the process of collecting and documenting evidence on knowledge, skills, values and attitudes acquired by a learner over a period of time as learning goes on. Grade 3 MLP is therefore process of finding out the progress learners have made in their quest to acquire the expected competencies after three (3) years of primary education, for purposes of decision making and instituting interventions.
How long will it take for schools to know learners scores in Grade 3 MLP?
Teachers are required to score the assessment using the marking guides provided and give immediate feedback to the individual learners at the school level.
Grade 3 MLP is expensive to parents and schools, who bears the cost?
MLP should be administered in the most natural environment just like the way teachers conduct classroom assessments. In undertaking the Integrated Learning Areas assessment, learners are expected to use locally available and affordable materials. Schools are also encouraged to use digital devices such as computers, laptops, projectors, and tablets to administer MLP assessment in a more interesting manner for the learners as well as reducing on costs of printing question papers.
