TEACHERS' ATTITUDES ABOUT COMMONLY USED ALTERNATIVE ASSESSMENT STRATEGIES IN ARAB SCHOOLS INSIDE THE GREEN LINE
The study aimed to identify the teachers’ attitudes about the strategies and assessment tools commonly used in Arab within the Greenline in the three academic stages (primary, preparatory and secondary). The study consisted of 220 male and female teachers, who were randomly accessed. The questionnaire was used as a tool for data collection after verifying its validity and reliability. The results of the study concluded that the degree of teachers' use of evaluation strategies in the three educational stages was moderate. The strategy commonly used in primary schools is the communication strategy, while in middle and high schools it was the performance strategy. The results also showed that there were no statistically significant differences at the significance level α ≤ 0.05 in the average responses of the sample members about the school assessment tools due to years of experience, educational qualification, type of specialization and study stage. In light of the above-mentioned results, the following is recommended: Educating teachers about the importance of using modern assessment strategies and tools of all kinds, establishing awareness and training courses for teachers in order to clarify the mechanism of using formative assessment because of its benefits to the teaching and learning process.
