1.0 INTRODUCTION

This assessment format for the Form Two National Assessment (FTNA) is a revised version of a format issued by the National Examinations Council of Tanzania (NECTA) in 2017.

It is based on a revised version of the Physics Syllabus for Ordinary Secondary Education issued in 2007 by the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training.

Improvements in the revised format include changing the assessment rubric and including a table of specifications.

However, there are no changes in the assessment content.

2.0 GENERAL OBJECTIVES

The assessment will test the extent to which students are able to:

2.1 demonstrate laboratory practice and safety;

2.2 develop skills on basic principles of scientific investigation;

2.3 develop skills for making physical measurements;

2.4 recognise behaviour and properties of matter;

2.5 understand concepts and principles of magnetism and electricity;

2.6 comprehend the laws of motion;

2.7 understand principles of simple machines; and

2.8 develop knowledge of sustainable energy for environmental conservation.

3.0 GENERAL COMPETENCIES

The assessment will test the students’ ability to:

3.1 practice safety rules in daily life;

3.2 apply basic principles of scientific investigation;

3.3 make appropriate measurements of physical quantities;

3.4 use scientific skills to identify the nature and properties of matter;

3.5 apply electricity and magnetism knowledge in daily life;

3.6 apply laws of motion in dealing with moving objects;

3.7 use simple machines to simplify work; and

3.8 practice environmental conservation by adopting appropriate sustainable energy sources.

4.0 ASSESSMENT RUBRIC

There will be one (1) theory paper, which will take 2 hours to complete. The paper will consist of 10 questions categorised into sections A, B and C. Students will be required to attempt all questions, which will weigh 100 marks.

Section A will comprise two (2) objective questions. Question 1 will be a multiple-choice item, consisting of 10 items. Each item will carry one (1) mark, making a total of 10 marks.

Question 2 will be a matching items question containing five (5) items. Each item will carry one (1) mark, making a total of five (5) marks. Therefore, the section will weigh a total of 15 marks.

Section B will have seven (7) short answers questions. Each question will carry 10 marks, making a total of 70 marks.

Section C will consist of one (1) question testing students’ knowledge and skills in drawing and managing Physics apparatuses and simple technological devices in everyday life. The question will carry 15 marks.
