image of Examination Systems in Small States

This publication is based on the content of a panCommonwealth workshop in Barbados in 1996. Participants looked at issues such as: personnel and infrastructure; international recognition and national priorities; innovative ways of testing; using technology to improve efficiency. Examination Systems in Small States deals with the provision of examinations in small states. It presents a conceptual framework and discusses models for the administration and provision of examinations at the end of the secondary cycle.



Lessons for Conceptual Understanding

The introduction and first chapter of this book presented a conceptual framework for the topics addressed. This chapter builds on those remarks, and identifies some of the conceptual implications of patterns described. Focusing on examination systems in small states, this book contributes on the one hand to the broader literature on examinations and on the other hand to the broader literature on small states.
