Parents and students in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) are being urged to get fully acquainted with the new primary grade assessment framework developed by the Barbados-based Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC).

Following a meeting between representatives of St. Kitts Ministry of Education and OECS Secretariat, Selma Biscette, curriculum officer for social science was quoted as saying by the St. Lucia Online News, that many teachers are not sure about the scope, where they should end when it comes to the curriculum, hence they have been very receptive when it comes to the standards.

The meeting served to introduce the OECS Primary Grades Assessment Framework, which provides an outline of approaches to assessment from grades K – 6 which caters to the acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes that are critical for nurturing students.

The OECS groups the islands of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia, St. Kitts-Nevis, Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands.
