PNG Grade 12 examination results and School Performance ranking and Grading 2022


The Department of Education (DOE) has made a public announcement during  the Online Launching of Exam Results in December 2022, that it will publish  the PNG School’s Examinations League Table.

The DoE’s Measurement Services Division has produced League Tables for  stakeholder awareness, classifying all schools to under A (excellent), B (very  good), C (good), D (satisfactory) or E (Not satisfactory) Grades.  Since this intervention is the first time ever for the PNG Education  Department, we need to explain what is a Leagues Table and what are the  reasons for publishing the PNG Examinations Leagues Table.

Definition and Purpose of the Examination Leagues Table  What is an Examination Leagues Table?  An examination leagues table is a ranking system that compares the  academic performance of schools based on the results of standardized tests  and examinations. These tables typically list schools in order of their scores,  with the highest-scoring schools at the top and the lowest-scoring schools at the bottom.

What are the reasons for publishing the results?

Publishing examination leagues tables is important for several reasons. Firstly, it provides valuable information to parents and students who are  choosing a school. By comparing the rankings of different schools, parents  and students can make an informed decision about where to enroll.

Secondly, publishing leagues tables can help schools to identify areas for  improvement. If a school is ranked lower than its peers, it may signal that  changes need to be made to improve academic performance. These changes  could include investing in better resources, hiring more qualified teachers, or  implementing new teaching strategies.

Thirdly, publishing leagues tables can help provinces and education officials  to monitor the performance of schools and identify trends in academic  achievement. This information can be used to allocate resources and support  schools that are struggling.

Finally, publishing leagues tables promotes transparency and accountability  in the education system. By making this information publicly available,  schools and education officials are held accountable for their academic  performance and are motivated to strive for excellence.

In summary, examination leagues tables are important for schools, parents,  provinces, and everyone who has an interest in education. They provide  valuable information for decision-making, help schools to identify areas for  improvement, allow for monitoring of academic achievement, and promote  transparency and accountability in the education system.
