Kwara Govt Partner UBEC To Train, Equip Officers On Electronic Quality Assurance

As part of its effort to further improve the  quality of school monitoring and School evaluation  across the State, the Kwara State government through  the Universal Basic Universal Basic Education Board in collaboration  with  the Universal Basic Education commission has distributed  forty Ipads to the Quality Assurance Officers  in the State. 

This was disclosed today  by  the Executive Chairman kwara State Universal Basic Education Board, Professor  Shehu  Raheem Adaramaja  during a two-day training workshop organised for the Quality Assurance  Department on the current trends in whole school evaluation for effectiveness  and efficiency.

Professor Adaramaja through a press statement made available to 9japarrot by Alade Opeyemi J, Press Secretary 
KWSUBEB, said the importance  of the  training workshop cannot be overemphasized, describing it as a complete paradigm shift from the  manual reporting of school evaluation  to the use of electronic evaluation reporting through the use of computer devices   in line with global best practices. 

Adaramaja added that the shift becomes imperative because school  monitoring and  evaluation need to be reported accurately and promptly. He expressed the hope that  the  training will enhance productivity  and efficiency as it will  checkmate Officers who indulge in cutting corners without getting to their assigned schools. 

The SUBEB boss stressed that this giant step has made it possible  for the state to key into modern reporting of what goes on in schools with a view to taking the right decision for school development. 
He further stressed that kwara state is one of the few states that paid for additional number of personal computer tablets so as to train and equip its Officers for the electronic quality  Assurance. 

Professor Adaramaja however commended the Executive Governor of the state, Mallam AbdulRahman  AbdulRazaq  and the UBEC for their financial commitments  to the capacity training as well as the National Space  Research and Development  Agency(NASRDA) for coming down to kwara state to facilitate the workshop.

In his own contribution,  the Director  General  of  National Space Research  and Development Agency( NASRDA), Dr Hamilu Ahmed Shaba said the training is focused on capacity building for the staff of SUBEB  with the development of skills and capacity in the application of space technology  and GPS for project quality assurance as well as geospatial intellgence activities taking place at a project or at a location. 

Dr.Shaba emphasized that electronic quality assurance (e- quality Assurance) is fast, verifiable, accurate and available on digital devices that simplifies data collection. He added that  the  new system allows automatic processing of information and minimises possibilities of human errors. 

He also used the opportunity to appreciate the Executive Chairman of KWSUBEB and his Management staff for making this relationship a successful reality  to ensure  that KWSUBEB operates a 21st century operational mechanism  that is space technology compliance.
