The Journal of Educational Assessment in Africa is published yearly by the Association for Education Assessment in Africa (AEAA). The main objective of the journal is to provide information to enhance research and knowledge so as to improve educational assessment in Africa. The journal publishes manuscripts that contribute to improvement of educational assessment.
It has come to the attention of Umalusi that there are websites that sell fake matric certificates to the public. Umalusi has identified the following websites http://fakematricandcertificate.co.za/ and http://www.registermatriccertificates.co.za/ that are involved in this illegal activity. This is illegal and constitutes a criminal offense which is punishable by law. Umalusi condemns this fraudulent activity in the strongest possible terms.
Today Umalusi released a report of its research study on the inclusion of South African Sign Language (SASL) in the curriculum as one of the examinable subjects for the National Senior Certificate. The aim of the study was to provide guidance to Umalusi in its role as the quality assurer for SASL-Home Language with specific reference to school-based assessment and national examinations.
