2023 NTC Licensure Examination: New Pass Mark Announced
Here is the proposed new pass mark for Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination.
NTC Evaluation Of Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination
The management of the National Teaching Council on Thursday, April 13 2023 commissioned three different studies on the evaluation of the Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination (GTLE) and Teacher Professionalism in Ghana.
The event was held at Alisa Hotel in Accra The main purpose of the meeting is to discuss the quality and trend analysis of the licensure examination and teacher professionalism and practice in Ghana.
New Pass Mark Announced
Speaking at the event, the Deputy Director General for TVET service, David Prah has proposed an increment in the pass mark for the Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination.
According to him, the 50% pass mark is equal to a 50% of the teacher who is licensed to teach.
Therefore, there is a need to increase the pass mark to 70%
“’I’m very happy that our teacher union leaders are with us. The pass rate and the percentage for passing, I believe is a suspect and questionable. 50% for a teacher to step into a classroom, meaning that he has a 50 deficit.
I believe you have achieved or are yet to achieve. A 50% deficit to enter the classroom is very disastrous. We need to revise it.”
