Dr. Addai – Poku indicated that the 7th Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination was preceded by the development of online test preps to assist candidates to prepare adequately for the examination.
The link of the portal was sent to all the registered candidates to use the preparatory materials for their studies.
A report indicates that a sizeable number of the candidates made good use of the portal. It is firmly believed that this intervention will help shore up the performance of candidates.
He further added that the Ghana Teacher Licensure Examination is undergoing a number of reforms, effective next year. This includes the Subject-Based Test (SBT) and Computer-Based Test (CBT). This is to help test both the professionalism and proficiency of the candidates.
