Abstract:

This presentation will primarily focus on: (1) introducing participants with competency based diagnostic school reporting system developed in SPSS and the remedial tool developed for teachers to improving student performance, (2) providing highlights of learners’ performance in grade 5 English and mathematics in Namibia’s first National Assessment, and (3) identifying school factors (e.g., school leadership, teaching and learning, etc.) through statistical regression analysis that influence learner performance in grade 5 national assessment.

The first national assessment was administered to all grade 5 learners (about 62,000) in November, 2009. Three psychometrically equivalent test forms (meeting test blueprints and difficulty) in each subject area were given to the learners and had acceptable reliability coefficients of internal consistency. The results showed that learners obtained on an average of 42% in English and 43% in mathematics; females performed statistically significantly better than males in both subject areas. The presentation will also describe the comparison among geographical regions, urban and rural, and public and private schools.

The learners were also classified into four performance level categories (called below basic, basic, above basic, and excellent achievement) based on their performance on the test. It was evident that more female students were in the top two categories (i.e., above basic and excellent) than the male students. As expected, extremely high disparity observed between urban and rural schools.
