Prep students excel in benchmarking tests

IMG_0391 (Copy)Oakhill Prep students did very well in the recent IEB Grade 6 Core Skills test, as well as the AMESA SA Mathematics Challenge. Numerous students received certificates for results achieved . Two Prep students, Francois Hay (Grade 5) and Max Penrith (Grade 4), received Gold certificates for outstanding achievement in the SA Mathematics Challenge.

The IEB Grade 6 Core Skills Test was developed to determine whether Grade 6 learners, at the end of the intermediate phase of schooling, have attained sufficient cognitive academic proficiency to engage with the demands of the following years. It provides a benchmarking moment in the learning pathway where its formative, diagnostic intention is to have a positive, qualitative impact on teaching, learning and assessment in the schools that write the test. The AMESA Mathematics Challenge is also an independent benchmarking test that recognises achievement in mathematics and awards the following certificates: All learners scoring more than 80% in the Final receive a “gold” Certificate of Achievement, those scoring more than 60% receive “silver”, and those scoring more than 50% receive “bronze” Certificates.
