ZAGREB, March 26 2020 – Science and Education Minister Blaženka Divjak on Thursday underscored that the regularity of the school year would not be brought into question adding that several scenarios were being prepared for graduation examinations and that the ministry would issue relevant instructions early April.
The plan we prepared for online lessons is being implemented successfully however there are certain issues that need to be advanced, she said.
Several scenarios have been worked out for secondary school state graduation examinations; however, this epidemiological situation is totally unfamiliar and no one knows how long it will continue. “Depending on its duration, we will activate some of those scenarios and we will inform everyone of that on time,” she noted.
Early April the ministry will release instructions for assessment and evaluation so that online assessment and evaluation is the same at the national level.
It is not necessary to give marks for the first two weeks of remote learning, she said but it is essential to embark on support and adaptation.
