Critical Issue: Improving Classroom Assessment in Secondary Schools in Nigeria

Classroom assessments are designed and administered by classroom teachers. These assessments plays essential role in determining students progression from one class to another and as continuous assessment for high-stake examinations. It is through these assessments that classroom teachers can effectively target instruction in the academic content standards and arm students with the knowledge and skills needed for success, both in and out of school. However, if the content and the target of assessment do not match what is taught, the results would be meaningless and harmful. Also, if assessment tools are not of high quality, decisions affecting students’, futures based on these results would be misleading and consequently have negative impact on them. This paper sought to examine assessment practices in secondary schools in Nigeria and  , how they can be improved upon to ensure quality.Keywords: assessment, classroom assessment, quality, classroom teachers, secondary schools. ,
