18,039 write SEA today

THOUSANDS of children will today write the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) examination. Education Minister Dr Tim Gopeesingh said yesterday 18,039 pupils were scheduled to write the nerve-wracking examination that takes place for the first time this month, previously being held in March.

It is also the first time the Continuous Assessment Component (CAC) was included in the assessment.

Everything was in place for the exam, including beefed-up security and the introduction of a hotline to report any incidents of electricity disruption, the minister said in a press release.

Gopeesingh said the pigeon infestation problem at Carapichaima Government Primary School was addressed and also the sewer problems at VOS Government Primary School in Gasparillo. Pupils will be able to write SEA at those schools, he said.

“I wish to assure all students, parents, teachers, principals and school supervisors throughout Trinidad and Tobago that all systems are in place for the successful administration of these exams,” said Gopeesingh.

“Security arrangements have been put in place for the storage, distribution and return of the question papers, after which they will be handed over to CXC for marking and processing.”

Results are due in the first week of July.

Amalgamated Security Services Ltd has been contracted to transport exam papers to the 24 drop-off points in the country and to collect the answer scripts from all educational districts, he said.

The minister also expressed best wishes to the pupils.

“I wish to express my heartfelt support for each and every one of these students, as well as their parents and their teachers, on this very important day of their academic lives.

I also thank their teachers and parents for being at their sides throughout this very demanding and even stressful period. I know that when the children write the exams on Thursday, they will do their absolute best. That is all we can and should expect from them.”

The hotline number went into effect yesterday at 3 p.m. and will continue until 3 p.m. today.

The exam should officially end around 11.30 a.m.

Principals and supervisors can call or text 794-4823 or 794-7264 to report any disruption in electricity or any electrical safety concerns.

The Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association and Congress of the People also extended best wishes to pupils yesterday.

In Tobago, 839 children will sit the SEA and Tobago House of Assembly (THA) Chief Secretary Orville London wished them the very best.

“Regardless of the results, they are all assured of places in secondary schools, top-class secondary schools,” he said.

London said while all pupils will not get their first choice, everyone will have the opportunity to perform and achieve at their best, wherever they are placed.
London was speaking yesterday at the THA’s weekly media briefing

Principals: Maths question not on syllabus...

By Sue-Ann Wayow sue-ann.wayow@trinidadexpress.com
Story Created: May 9, 2013 at 9:11 PM ECT
Story Updated: May 10, 2013 at 6:50 AM ECT
PRIMARY school principals complained yesterday that a mathematics question that came as part of the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) examination was never taught to pupils because the topic was no longer on the relevant syllabus.
The Express was told that some pupils who were unable to answer the question were left in tears.
The Ministry of Education has denied this but said if the majority of children did not do well in a particular question, marks could be “tweaked” to be more accommodating.
Yesterday, 18,039 children wrote the exam, which was previously held in March.
It was also the first time the Continuous Assessment Component (CAC) was implemented.
Lynsley Doodhai, pre­sident of the National Primary Schools Principals’ Association (NAPSPA), issued a press re­lease shortly after the exam was completed at around 11.30 a.m.
Doodhai stated: “Principals have complained to NAPSPA that question number 35 of the mathematics paper was based on the topic ‘Proportion and Ratio’, a topic that is no longer on the primary school mathematics syllabus, having been removed many years ago. This question carries a weighting of three marks out of a total score of 100 marks.”
Doodhai said he was told many pupils became emotional and frustrated during the examination when confronted with that question.
Principals said some children began crying during the 30-minute break between the mathematics and language arts papers, he said.
Some said pupils were unable to finish the ma­th­e­matics paper and “their emotional well-being was disturbed for the language arts paper that followed the mathematics paper”.
Doodhai said the Ministry of Education should take responsibility as NAPSPA would have expected the Curriculum Division of the ministry to guide the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) as to the topics that were to be tested.
CXC is responsible for setting the exam.
Doodhai said: “NAPSPA is calling on the Min­istry of Education to ensure that this item on the mathematics paper is not considered when the scripts are being marked. NAPSPA is also calling on the Ministry of Education to engage in dialogue with the CXC to ensure that such an unfortunate incident is not repeated in the future.”
However, Alicia Bus­by, the Ministry of Education’s communications management adviser, said she was told by the ministry’s chief education officer that the question was part of the syl­la­bus.
But if there was a particular question that the majority did not do well in, the marking system could be tweaked to accommodate pupils.
Busby also said there were no major incidents, except for a power outage in one school (Las Cuevas Government Prima- ry School) that lasted for ten minutes.
Busby said the school called the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) hotline that was set up especially for SEA and power was restored.
Education Minister Dr Tim Gopeesingh said he did not wish to comment about Doodhai’s statements.
“I am advised by the chief education officer that it (SEA) went well without any hitches, and I want to thank all the students and wish them well in their results from the examination,” he said.
“I want to thank all those who supervised the examination processes, the parents who had their children at school and the entire national community for their prayers and wishes.”
The minister said if Doodhai had any issues, they could arrange for a meeting to discuss them.
