[11/30/16] Production of exams has been very hectic! Thank God that all is done successfully. My gratitude to all those members who helped in the setting,moderating, proof reading ,printing, distribution. We also thank all those schools that have trusted us due to the quality of work we do.
Most schools and families in Teso sub region are off grid.This makes learning at home at night impossible.This means that learners are unable to get time to revise their notes and and do homeworks.This state of affairs has ultimately affected the academic performance of learners.This is applicable to secondary and primary learners since most of them study in day schools across Teso sub region. Glydenet is considering working with Sun king Solar to bring affordable,durable and effective solar lamps to schools and families in Teso Subregion.This,we hope,will try to reverse the prevailing circumstances.
Some of the Sun King Products that will soon be available to most schools and families in Teso sub region are displayed below.Over to you!
PRONUNCIATION AND NOT PRONOUNCIATION
A key aspect of speaking which deals with clearly speaking out words with correct sounds
How is pronunciation shown in the dictionary?
All the pronunciations use the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). All of the symbols are shown in a list inside the back cover of the dictionary. If there are two possible pronunciations they are both shown separated by a comma.
1. British and American pronunciation
If we only show one pronunciation for a
word then it is acceptable in British and American English. If there is a difference, the British pronunciation is shown first, followed by the American pronunciation after the symbol US.(Might slightly vary from dictionary to dictionary ) Part of the American English pronunciation which is different, is shown like this:
storehouse /ˈstɔː.haʊs/ us /ˈstɔːr-/
Stress patterns show you which parts of a word you should emphasize when you say the word. We show stress marks in front of the part of the word that should be emphasized.
/ˈ/ (the primary stress symbol)
This symbol shows you the part of a word that you should emphasize most. For example, in the word picture /ˈpɪk.tʃer/ you should emphasize the first part and in the word
deny /dɪˈnaɪ/ you should emphasize the second part.
/ˌ/ (the secondary stress symbol)
This symbol shows you the part of the word that has the second most important emphasis. This is important if you are pronouncing
a long word with three or more syllables.
For example, in the word submarine
/ˌsʌb.mɘrˈiːn/ the main emphasis is on the last part of the word but you should also put slight emphasis on the first part of the word as well.
There are some compound nouns and phrases (e.g. barn dance, barrier cream) where we do not show a separate pronunciation, because the pronunciations of both of the words in the phrase are shown in other parts of the dictionary. You still need to know about the stress in the phrase. We show this by using stress markers above and below the words in the phrase, like this:
In all of the pronunciations there are marks to show you how many syllables the word has. The syllable mark is like a full stop. It comes before each new syllable. For example, in the word standard /ˈstan.dɘd/ the syllable mark shows you that the word has two syllables. If we show stress marks in a word, these also show when a new syllables starts. So in a word like banana /bɘˈnɑː.nɘ/ the stress mark and syllable mark shows you that there are three syllables in the word.
4. Strong forms and weak forms
Some very common words (e.g. and, them, of) have strong and weak pronunciations which are different. The weak forms are more common. For example, the word them is shown like this in the dictionary:
them STRONG /dem/, WEAK /dəm/
In a sentence such as ‘I saw them leave’ the weak form /dəm/ would be used. If you need to emphasize the word them then you need to use the strong form. For example, in the sentence ‘They said they saw me but I didn’t see them’ the strong form /dem/ would be used.

Short vowels Long vowels diphthongs ɪ as in pit iː as in see eɪ as in daye as in wet aː as in arm aɪ as in mya as in cat ɔː as in saw ɔɪ as in boyʌ as in run uː as in too ɘʊ as in low (UK)ɒ as in hot (UK) ɜː as in her (UK) oʊ as in low (US)ʊ as in put ɝː as in bird (US) aʊ as in howɘ as in ago ɚ as in mother (US) ɪɘ as in near (UK)i as in cosy eɘ as in hair (UK)u as in influence ʊɘ as in pure (UK) aɪɘ as in fire aʊɘ as in sour

Other symbols used in the pronunciations
// this shows that the /ə/ as in sudden /ˈsʌdn/ can be pronounced or not pronounced
/ʳ/ this shows that the /r/ as in the word teacher /ˈtiːtʃəʳ/ is pronounced in UK English when followed by a vowel sound, but not when followed by a consonant sound. In US English it is always pronounced.
/ˈ/ primary stress (the part of the word you emphasize most), as in above /əˈbʌv/
/ˌ/ secondary stress (the part of the word you emphasize as well as, but not quite as much as, the primary stress), as in backyard /ˌbakˈjɑːd/
/l̩/ this is used when a consonant (usually ‘l’) can be pronounced as a syllable on its own, as in the word angle /ˈaŋ.gl̩/
/˜/ this is used when a vowel is pronounced with a nasal sound, usually because the word has come from French
if a symbol is shown in italics it means the sound can be pronounced or not pronounced (for example, the t in the pronunciation of the word lunch /lʌntʃ/)
All the best

What is assessment?
In a teaching profession, Assessment refers to a way of finding out how much a learner has achieved either during or after the teaching learning process. It is a practice used to identify and rank the learners using different tools such as observation, essays, quizzes, tests and debates. In teaching therefore, Assessment is part and parcel of the teaching learning process. This is because you want to find out whether the learner is making some progress in learning or not so as to be able to make the necessary interventions (provision of remedial work)
So, how else would a teacher get to find out the learning status of a learner if he/she does not embrace Assessment effectively? Assessment here plays a very big role of providing a “mind map” to a teacher who is implementing the curriculum-Which is why teachers should always take syllabus coverage seriously and consequent Assessment of learners as very vital steps in learning improvement. Most of our schools today are performing poorly (academically) partly because most teachers have neglected giving assessments and so do not know how competent their learners are! As a teacher, your role is not only teaching but also ensuring that you completely know the abilities of your learners by assessing them. When a decision is arrived at to have a child to either to repeat, promoted or demoted, due consideration should borne in mind to make adequate consultation of the available records of previous assessment. A teacher who does not assess and keep records of his learners only makes an assumption that he is teaching and yet in actual sense what may be taking place in the learners’ perception may be a little different. As Glydenet Educational Services, we call upon all teachers to fully commit themselves to regular teaching in accordance with the established and approved timetable so as to enhance consistent syllabus coverage and effective assessment of learners. Adherence to established teaching timetable remains crucial for full realization of the meaning of the purpose of syllabus coverage and assessment. If it is not effected, then we can be sure that syllabus coverage will continue being mythical and consequently good results from both local and national examinations will still remain a mystery!
Forms of assessment
We shall restrict our discussion to two forms only;
• Formative assessment: Carried out continuously at intervals to see how a learner is progressing during the teaching learning process, at the end of each lesson, topic, week or term. This is why giving constructive end of lesson exercises is very important because it falls here.
• Summative assessment: is the type of assessment carried out at the end of the course, term or year.
Both types of assessments are meant to gauge the ability of the learner for placement or promotion. However, teachers are encouraged to embrace Continuous Assessment so as to assess the learner from time to time and take record of the level of competencies achieved by the learner.
Continuous assessment should be carried out daily, weekly, or at the end of the topic.
It is important to note that Continuous Assessment is intended to help teachers and learners. At the epicenter of the discussion is the principle that all teaching includes Assessment. Assessment should be included as part of each lesson activity and therefore included as part of every lesson plan. When you teach, you are teaching a class of individual learners. In order to help them learn, you need to know their strengths and weaknesses on a continuous basis.

The tests are set and carefully moderated using a professional standard yardstick -The Blue Print.The blue print sieves the questions in a test using Bloom's Taxonomy of educational objectives.This caters for all the domains of learner development.That is cognitive,psychomotor and affective domains.Questions in a paper are in three levels;Knowledge,Comprehension and Application questions[KCA].Now, over a period of time,we shall
discuss matters concerning assessment of learners in our classes and schools and how it impacts on parents,the school learning of learners.Watch this space!
