The Ministry of Education launched its Secondary Entrance Assessment Online Portal.
The feature was launched on Thursday June 23, at the Ministry of Education Head Office, in Port of Spain.
The Ministry said it continues to aggressively pursue its mandate of transformation in the education system, with digitization and digitalization being key hallmarks of this project.
The suite of projects and initiatives under the MOE Digital Transformation programme seek to provide improved systems, customer focused e-services and more efficient operations through student and teacher-focused solutions. The SEA Online Portal will allow parents and guardians to access their child’s SEA result via their laptop or any mobile device.
While delivering an address at the event, Minister Gadsby-Dolly linked the launch of the SEA Online Portal to the Government’s digitization mandate.
The Minister said, “The COVID-19 experience has empasized the urgency of a resilient education system, requiring innovation, automation, digitization and digitalization.
For this current academic year, both web-based and paper-based results will be available, and the paper-based result slips must be collected for student placement in the secondary school system. It is expected however, that by 2023, paper-based results will be completely phased out.
During the period May 25 to June 7, 2022, the ICT team at the Ministry of Education conducted several beta testing sessions on the system for various user groups. Among the stakeholders contributing to this exercise were principals, School Supervisors and representatives from the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers Association (TTUTA), National Parent Teachers Association (NPTA), Home School Association of Trinidad and Tobago (HATT), Private Primary Schools Association and the Division of Education, Research and Technology, Tobago House of Assembly (THA).
