About 110,000 children participated in the trial in the first season on Thursday. About 100,000 students used the Friday deadline.
On both days, students had a seventy-minute limit to calculate all the examples in the math. Mathematician Matěj Rašovský, who processed the results for iDNES.cz on the first day of the exam, said that only the most skilled could calculate all the problems.
“However, the tests contained enough work from the core curriculum that most students could pass,” he thinks. On the second day, Cantor Marek Bardeszowski from Liberec processed the results for the editorial office.
The Czech language and literature tasks are different, but due to the limited time limit – sixty minutes – and the large number of long texts, students do not have time to process all the questions.
Lukas Smola, Czech language teacher at Sunny Canadian International School Elementary School and Gymnasium in Jesenice-Osnice, later commented on the exams. There was nothing to surprise them in the experiment.
Smola, who took part in solving the tasks for iDNES.cz, assessed that “this test is based on communication, I feel very positive about working with the text and reading with understanding.”
Tests will still be evaluated by an expert jury
Miroslav Krejčí, head of Cermat, told iDNES.cz that schools will receive the test results on April 28 and then have two to three working days to publish them together with their school districts. But before the documents are sent to the schools, there will be a meeting with an independent committee at the headquarters to prepare the entrance and matriculation exams.
“To meet on Wednesday, April 26, we will present to the group of experts all the tasks, the results and the procedures on how to fix, for example, the most common types of answers. Only if the commission says that everything was in order, we will send the data to the schools,” explains Krezzi, adding that some of the commission If the solutions or conclusion is considered incorrect, it should be re-evaluated and revised.
So it’s a similar principle to matriculation exams – even after they’re over, an independent panel of experts meets to assess their quality and review individual cases. Among others, Martin Schwal, former director of Zermatt, sits on the commission.
