UBEC Revamps School Quality Assessment

Date:

The Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC) has ushered in a transformative era in the evaluation of quality assurance within public primary and junior schools across Nigeria. Introducing the innovative ‘UBECOLLECT,’ the commission has embraced a digitalised methodology to streamline the assessment process.

Mr. Alabi Asaju, the Acting Director of the Quality Assurance department at UBEC, emphasised the distinctive shift from the antiquated approach, which disproportionately focused on school personnel rather than learners. This shift addresses the repercussions of neglecting the variables influencing students’ performance and teachers’ effectiveness.

During his visit to schools in Oyo State, Asaju elaborated on UBEC Executive Secretary Dr. Hamid Bobboyi’s commitment to transparency and validity in the evaluation process. The adoption of electronic gadgets aims to rectify the shortcomings of the manual approach; ensuring a more efficient and accurate quality assurance exercise.

Asaju highlighted the paramount importance of inspection, monitoring, and evaluation in any educational system; emphasising that these processes offer insights into compliance with set standards and learners’ proficiency in curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular activities.

The shift from traditional fault-finding inspections to a comprehensive quality assurance approach addresses the shortcomings of the former by considering intervening variables affecting both learners and teachers.

In essence, this revolutionary step by UBEC marks a departure from the conventional school inspection model, providing a more holistic and feedback-oriented approach to ensure effective delivery and enhanced learner outcomes.
