The trends in global education demand that teaching and learning at all levels of education should be qualitative such that the learners use whatever they were exposed to in schools to survive in the society. Education is therefore to prepare them for the world of work. However, there is a disconnect between what the society need and what the learners are exposed to in schools, therefore there is the need to plough back the outcomes of research and assessment into the classroom situation to bring about quality teaching and learning. Hence, EARNiA announces her 4th International Conference on using assessment and research outcomes in teaching and learning in Africa which shall hold in the Republic of Ghana between 2 and 7 September, 2018 at the University of Cape Coast, Cape Coast, Ghana. Participants are requested to send their abstracts of not more than 200 words to or on or before 15 June, 2018.


1. Empowering teachers and learners through assessment (assessment for learning, assessment of learning and assessment as learning).

2. Empowering teachers and learners using research driven instruction

3. Comparative analysis �¢ï¿½ï¿½ the status-quo and the ideal in assessment and research for teaching and learning.

Who is qualified to attend?
