About JSS3 Basic Technology Scheme of Work

Basic Technology is a fundamental subject in the Junior Secondary School 3(JSS3) curriculum in Nigeria. It provides a crucial introduction to the principles and practical applications of technology in everyday life and future careers. It encompasses key topics such as technical drawing, materials and resources, energy and power, basic electricity, maintenance, and workshop practices.

 

Basic Technology is essential for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE). As a compulsory subject, it ensures students acquire the technical knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the BECE, an important milestone in their education. Proficiency in Basic Technology not only enhances students’ performance in the BECE but also establishes a strong foundation for future studies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.

Assessment Guide

The crowning event for Jss3  and the Junior Secondary school as a whole is the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) which is taken mid-third term. The assessment methods for Basic Technology include written examinations, which may consist of multiple-choice questions, short-answer questions, and essay-type questions. These exams are conducted in a controlled environment to ensure fairness and integrity.

Additionally, practical assessments may be included which assess students’ ability to apply theoretical knowledge to practical tasks.

Furthermore, continuous assessment, which involves periodic tests, assignments, and projects conducted throughout the academic session, also contributes to the overall BECE assessment. This allows for an all-around evaluation of students’ performance and progress over time.
