Achievement South Africa
Published Wednesday, June 1, 2011
South Africa participated in SACMEQ II in 2000 and in SACMEQ III in 2007. The achievement results showed that while South African learners had slightly improved their performance across the two SACMEQ studies (by 3 points in reading and 9 points in mathematics), they were still underperforming in both reading and mathematics compared to the SACMEQ average. Using the results learners achieved in internationally benchmarked tests crafted by SACMEQ, credible standpoints are made on learner achievement levels.
