Pilot Project for alternative Exam system launched by ESA Board

Posted by ESA Administrator on 12 December 2017

The ESA’s current examination system of Suzuki teachers, has served the European Suzuki Community well for over 30 years. 

Course assessment in higher education has, however, developed during this time.  At present, assessment at universities for example, encompasses various methods of continuous assessment in addition to the traditional examination procedure.

It is felt that the ESA needs to explore the possibilities of these new assessment methods to improve Suzuki teacher training and determine whether any of these methods are useful, or even suitable for such training.
