Ministry official says mechanisms in place to safeguard integrity of PEP

THE Ministry of Education says that structural mechanisms have been put in place to safeguard the integrity of the in-school assessment component of the Primary Exit Profile (PEP).

The issue was raised at this week’s Jamaica Observer Monday Exchange, where officials from the ministry explained that the performance task component of PEP will be developed by the ministry.

“So it won’t be exposed until the student gets a copy on the day of administration.
