Abstract


In traditional teaching, assessment is an action that has an external characteristic, centered on the specific and final result of an action regarding an object that does not correspond to a mental program pre-established by the person using it, that is, it is beyond all internal learning process. It responds to an external manipulation of an internal process.
An assessment culture is generated in educational institutions that lay emphasis on products. It emphasizes as well the power of those who have the authority as sole responsible persons for the generation, implementation, and decision making; and in the absence of other actors as creative and participants in the assessment process.
The first explicitly stated Arabic curriculum for public schools in Egypt appeared in 1970 (Ministry of Education, 1970). It outlined a rationale for the teaching of Arabic in the Egypt and stated general and specific aims for teaching it. It described the theoretical framework and pedagogical practices by which these aims could be achieved and suggested ways for the evaluation of their achievement.
In 1990, a new revision of the curriculum of Arabic was adopted and new teaching materials were prepared to implement it. This currently-used curriculum has introduced various changes and delineated general and specific objectives of Arabic language teaching in Egypt in more realistic and functional terms.
