Abstract

This paper examines norm- referenced and criterion- referenced evaluation and accelerate their appropriateness into Criterion-Referenced Testing (CRT) and Norm-Referenced Testing (NRT). The paper also facilitates how these classical testing enhanced Continuous Assessment (CA) process in Senior Secondary School (SSS) Sciences and Mathematics. Two basic types of assessment strategies: Norm-Referenced Tests (NRTs) and Criterion- Referenced Tests (CRTs) were observed. The content selection of these tests were discussed, the steps involved in preparing criterion referenced tests were also identified. The rationale that prompted incorporating CRT strategy into CA process and how it (CRT) facilitated CA process in Sciences and Mathematics classes were discussed. Moreover, samples of CRTs were designed for Chemistry, Mathematics and Agricultural Science in Senior Secondary School one (SSS1).
