EducationGhana| August 03| 2022 NST: 2022 NST: Mathematics emerged as the most difficult for pupils in Basic 4:
Mathematics has emerged as the major challenge among pupils in Basic 4 in the public basic schools in Ghana in 2022.
This was contained in the results of the 2022 National Standardized Test, NST, in which almost 390,000 P4 pupils from 14,883 public schools participated, showed that the three regions, which were formerly together as the Brong Ahafo Region, emerged as a strong base for lower primary education.
After the test in Mathematics and English Language, P4 pupils in the Ahafo Region posted the highest mean scores of 67 per cent in English and 58 per cent in Mathematics, while those in the Bono Region posted 65 per cent in English and 55 per cent in Mathematics, with those in the Bono East Region scoring 58 per cent in English and 50 per cent in Mathematics.
Out of the 367,766 pupils who took the test, about 228,015 of them, representing 62 per cent, performed below the basic (BB) level, having obtained 49 per cent and below.
Fourteen per cent of those who took the test performed up to the basic (B) level, 13 per cent performed up to proficiency level, while 11 per cent performed to the advanced level.
The Volta Region was the lowest performing region, with 96 per cent of the P4 pupils falling within the BB level, three per cent attaining basic level and one per cent attaining proficiency.
The Western and the Western North regions followed, with 96 and 93 per cent, respectively, of their pupils falling within the BB level.
The Eastern, the Upper East and the Western regions followed, with 77, 76 and 72 per cent, respectively, in the BB level.
The test results also showed that the three worst performing regions in Mathematics were equally the worst performing in the English Language.
The outcome of the test, therefore, indicates that a lot more effort is needed in the three regions to help learners at the lower primary level to catch up with their mates elsewhere.
