The Ministry of Education says it is pleased with the performance of students in the Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment, CPEA Exam, which was held for the first time this year.
Chief Education Officer Lou-Ann Gilchrist discussed the results during a News Conference hosted by the Ministry this morning.
Miss Gilchrist expressed gratitude to all Education Officers, Principals and Teachers for working hard to produce this year’s result.
About 78.08-percent of the students who wrote the exam this year met the prescribed standard.
Miss Gilchrist explained how the CPEA Exam differed from the Common Entrance Exam.
Miss Gilchrist said the CPEA represents a major shift in assessing primary school students.
