It is widely acknowledged that many learners in South Africa perform below their required grade level. This is the result of learners having knowledge gaps from early grades which accumulate over time. This is particularly prevalent in hierarchical subjects like mathematics where present knowledge builds and is highly dependent on previous knowledge. It is becoming important to find ways of assisting learners to bridge their knowledge gaps to increase their prospects of succeeding at the FET level.


  • The evaluation will be conducted from 2020 to 2021.
  • 2 provinces
  • Senior Phase (Grades 8 & 9)
  • Teachers and learners
  • Utilisation of monitoring data where available

  • Final evaluation design
