MORE than 190 English teachers from secondary and national high schools in the country are in Port Moresby to mark Grade 12 written expression examination papers.
Marking started on Monday and will be completed on Friday.
About 18,000 Grade 12 students sat the examinations on Aug 11. The paper one covers 30% of the English subject that will be examined.
This means teachers will mark a total of 36,000 papers that come in from the two segments of questions.
Students will sit for paper two or the objective paper next month and covers 70%, along with other nationally assessed subjects.
Highlands’s region marking supervisor Vincent Kaka said they were using the written expression (WEX) code marking that avoided bias or favouritism.
“This method is safe as teachers do not know whose paper or which school they are marking,” he said.
