Adequacy of an assessment course: A study of graduate teachers in Ghana
The paper assessed the adequacy of the assessment course from the perspective of graduate teachers who received training. The descriptive design was used for the study. The population for the study was all core subject teachers in the six public Senior High Schools in the Agona West
and East Municipalities of Ghana. The purposive sampling procedure was used to include 204 core subject teachers in 6 Senior High Schools for the
study. A self-designed questionnaire on the adequacy and perceived strengths of the assessment course was used for data collection. The
results showed that teachers indicated the content areas of the courses as adequate. It was concluded that teachers in the Senior High Schools
perceived the content knowledge gained from the course as adequate. It is recommended that the course content should be maintained in order to
serve its intended purposes such as helping teachers to interpret test scores appropriately.
