9.3 EVALUATING CURRICULUM

The school is the place in which the curriculum objectives of a nation or a community are processed. All that takes place in a school has some impact on the society in which students live and will work. It is therefore necessary to investigate whether the resources allocated by the Government for educational purposes are being used to achieve the intended outcomes.

In addition to Governments, other stakeholders who invest considerably in education at the school level also need to know whether children actually learn during their stay at the school. The only way to objectively discover what occurs at a school is to evaluate its objectives, content, processes and output.

In other words, the school is evaluated in order to determine how it is succeeding at educating students. In order to determine how a school performs in its endeavors, it is necessary to compare it with schools of its own status in terms of human and material resource allocation.
