Tricia King  (Barbados)



Job Title: Secondary School Teacher
Qualifications: M.Ed. (Testing, Measurement & Evaluation) UWI, Cave Hill
Graduation Year: 2019

The MEd specialisation in Testing, Measurement and Evaluation was enjoyable.  A lot of beneficial information was shared which when applied improves student achievement and teacher effectiveness.
I especially enjoyed learning about the various forms of performance assessment and how they could be used to cater to students’ various learning styles. One of my fondest memories was personally applying performance assessment techniques such as poetry to share about topical information. 
I highly recommend the graduate studies programmes offered at the UWI.  My programme has helped me to become a better educator where I am more conscientious about the application and implications of student assessment.
I believe the programmes are developing the change agents needed to better position the Caribbean's educational system in the global community.
