It helps in the identification of the particular and individual weaknesses and need of the learner. The outcome of the Post-evaluation council proposes corrective measures to each case of unsatisfactory performance. This evaluation paves the way for intense work aimed at inculcating desired skills. Her assignments/homework must be completed by learners themselves so that teachers can monitor student understanding and work habits.
This is the mid-term evaluation that trains students in the appropriate skills; techniques, presentations, formats, practical and styles of particular subjects.

This explains why a total of 46 are employed for the total student population which still stands at 220 students.
