The student studying this programme is assessed through the following three (3) ways:

v   Courses which are non practical oriented the student is assessed through examinations, namely Main Timed Test (MTT) and Annual Examination (AE).In normal circumstances the students are required to attempt two questions out of three questions and four questions out of six questions for MTT and AE respectively. Candidates are required to write their names and registration numbers on MTT scripts while candidates are required to write their registration numbers only AE. MTT carries 30% while AE carries 70%. The student is regarded to have passed the course if he/she has the total marks of at least 40% in a particular course.

v  Second, the assessment of BED-TE students is done through eight (8) weeks Teaching Practice (TP). Students are required to attend TP in two years, namely in second and third years of study. The total number of assessment for the two years is six [3 assessments each year – OEI 208A & OEI 208B for second year and third year respectively]. The current system of assessing TP is done by in three ways. First, there is an assessment done in the classroom by supervisor from OUT or appointed by the OUT. Second, a student teacher has to fill in the tasks that she/he performs within five working days of the week for the entire six weeks of TP within the logbook. At the end of six weeks the student is required to write a report by responding to questions within the Logbook and submit it to the head of a school or Institution [who should at least hold a first degree in education]. Lastly, the head of school/institution also has to write a report regarding the performance of the particular student during the entire six weeks of TP. The head of institution hands the logbook to the University through the TP region coordinator. Finally, both reports are marked by department members and uploaded on students SARIS. The distribution of scores for TP are shown in the table below
