Melaku Takele has successfully defended his doctoral dissertation titled ‘Improving Mathematics Teachers’ Assessment Practices Through a School-based Lesson Study Model’. The main intention of this dissertation was focusing on soliciting and testing innovative assessment methods/strategies applicable in mathematics classrooms at secondary schools of Jimma city. Through the implementation of a school-based lesson study approach, Melaku’s work provides valuable insights into how collaborative, reflective practices can lead to more effective and meaningful students’ assessment. The viva voce committee was impressed by the rigor of the study and the potential impact it could have on mathematics education.

This milestone event marks an important step forward for the Department of TECS as it continues to push the boundaries of educational research and practices in the college. Using this opportunity, the department and the college would like to congratulate Mr Melaku and his supervisors for the successes achieved and call up on other PhD students and their respective supervisors to do their level best to realize their dreams within the time frame set.
