The Ghana Education Service (GES) has cautioned teachers against illegal collection of money from pupils and parents to organize end of term examination.

According to the Ghana Education Service, it is illegal to organize end-of-term exams for the pupils since the standard-based curriculum places emphasis on homework, project works and class tests as its main assessment tools.


In a statement signed by the Director-General of the GES, Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa said, the attention of Management of Ghana Education Service has been drawn to the unfortunate practice of some Metro/Municipal/District Director of Education collecting monies from pupils/parents to organize End of Term Examinations.

“For clarity, Management of GES wishes to remind all Metro/Municipal/District Directors of Education that the guidelines suggested in the learning assessment framework of the Standard-Based Curriculum (SBC) state that school-based assessment, comprising tests undertaken internally at the school level should form the basis for the Internal Assessment Score (IAS). This includes Homework, Class Tests, Group Work and Project Work.


“The revised learning assessment framework of the SBC document is available on the National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA) website.

“Metro/Municipal/District Directors of Education are to encourage Heads of Public Basic Schools and Teachers to access and make good use of the site and follow all guidelines concerning internal assessments as spelt out in SBC,” the statement said.

The GES has therefore directed Regional Directors of the Service to ensure that the practice of collecting money from parents and pupils ceases immediately.
