Assessment for Better Learning: Student Assessment in Kyrgyzstan

In my research paper I cover the Kyrgyzstani experience in introducing new student assessment initiatives. Nowadays, our educators have a good understanding of the need for changing goals of education, as well as the political will required to make these changes happen.The current system of education is not yet capable enough for training students to prepare them for real life, as required by realities of the modern world. The majority of Kyrgyz school students are not ready to apply knowledge and skills acquired at school in practice, particularly so at a level required by international research. One of the key ways to change the situation is to reform student assessment in the country.Therefore we are focusing on changing classroom assessment (introducing formative assessment in country schools), school leaving summative assessment, and also conduct international and national surveys of student achievements.We face many difficulties on the way but the situation is changing dramatically. In the research paper I am planning to focus on improving educational quality by building analytical and creative thinking skills of students with different abilities and measuring the changes in their learning.Key words: education quality, formative and summative assessment, large-scale assessment.
