Plan launched to test compulsory school system

A plan that will enable the country to evaluate the compulsory education system for the first time was launched on Wednesday, with experts saying it will assist in policymaking and promote quality education across the country. The plan, drawn up by the State Council’s Education Supervision and Guidance Committee, is designed to test the academic performance and physical and mental health of junior middle school and primary school students. It will also examine factors that affect their performance and health.

“It will only be used to help make better education policy and help schools improve the quality of the education they provide, so it will not add to the workload of students or the pressure on the schools,” said He Xiuchao, director of the Ministry of Education’s Supervision and Guidance Office.
