Improving educational assessment in Nigerian school system: implication for ODLS

A nation’,s educational system is her greatest asset for human capacity development in all sectors of the economy. Hence, instructional leaders of the educational system employ the process of evaluation, assessment and test to regularly establish the quality and effectiveness of instructional activities in their schools. Though, these concepts appear different in principle they are in practice mutually inclusive, infact an integral part of both. Since this paper is focused on improving educational assessment in the Nigerian School System: Implication for ODL System, it contends that the process of instruction in schools and assessment are intrinsically inseparable, whether in conventional system or ODL mode. This paper further stressed that informed judgment in the performance and progress of the learner will lack basis without proper assessment procedures. It highlights the negative effects of current assessment practices in the schools and posits that in order to fully improve on educational assessment in Nigerian School System and particularly the ODL mode, assessments should be made more realistic, relevant and useful for enhancing the quality of learning in the schools in the best interest of the learner and societal development.
