Middle school students must do their best next year on the calculation test to pass their final examination. The school can make the test itself. The national calculation test was abolished.
To increase the level of student calculation, a national calculation test was introduced five years ago. Vwo students must get at least 5 to succeed. The test was killed after fierce criticism.
From now on, the school must take a math test in the school exam, write the minister in charge, Arie Slob (Primary and Secondary Education) and Ingrid van Engelshoven (Education, Culture and Science). This, along with the central final exam, determines whether a student gets a diploma. For the new school exam, a student must get at least 4 to succeed.
Those who have graduated next year do not have to face a new school exam. The same applies to MBO graduates who have started their education.
The new setup is not final
Schools can choose for one test, a series of tests or another way to assess their students' numeracy. Schools that do not have their own tests can continue to use & # 39; old & # 39 ;.
The new set-up is also not definitive. We are drawing up new guidelines for things that students need to know and can do. It is possible that mathematics education will also change again.
The DPR still has to bend the plan, but the CDA and D66 governments don't see anything at all. MP D66 Paul van Meenen is & # 39; & # 39; disappointed & # 39; & # 39; and talk about "2.0 cost test". "That way we don't produce better math, it's too much about testing and too little about better education."
CDA 'er Michel Rog thinks it is unfortunate that ministers remain in the groove that a test must be carried out.' He also stressed 'better arithmetic education', rather than seeing a math test as' save & # 39;
