SCHOOL BASED ASSESSMENT: THE NEED, THE REALITY, THE FUTURE

This paper begins with an analysis of the perceived need for school based assessment, particularly in the present South African context. The results of a survey conducted amongst History and Geography teachers at Independent Examination Board (IEB) schools (all of which are independent and most of which are wellresourced) regarding the current school based assessment requirements of the Senior Certificate examination are discussed as a means of showing the reality as perceived by the schools. The reality from the perspective of the IEB, the body responsible for both setting the school based assessment and conducting the final moderation of it, is explored and reflected upon. The paper concludes with a view to the future which attempts to address the needs and demands of all parties: learner, teacher and examining board.
