Continuous Assessment
Performance of the student is assessed continuously through a scheme of Continuous Assessment that includes classroom participation, assignments, project work, tests and end-of-semester examinations.

This is an innovative programme which has recently been introduced in all teacher education institutions of Ethiopia.
In order to provide the trainees with better opportunities to learn about schools and how they function, trainees are given more time and opportunity to stay in schools. Practicum is organized in selected partner schools in Addis Ababa. The practicum includes observation of classroom teaching, observation of the school environments, conducting small scale research works, understanding the school communities, planning and conducting teaching etc.
