About SS1 Data Processing Scheme of Work

Computer studies taken in Junior secondary schools provide essential foundational skills that are crucial for SSS1 Data Processing. In JSS3, students learn basic computer concepts, operations, and introductory software applications, including word processors and spreadsheets. These basics are necessary for understanding and performing data processing tasks in SSS1, where students delve deeper into data management.

The Data processing scheme of work for SSS1 introduced by the Lagos state government covers key topics such as types of data, data entry, basic data processing operations, and the importance of accuracy and security in handling data. Practical exercises and projects also provide hands-on experience, allowing students to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world situations.

This continuity ensures that students are well-prepared and confident in handling real-world data applications, bridging the gap between basic computer literacy and advanced data processing competencies.

Assessment Guide

SSS1 Data Processing assessment methods include written exams, practical exams, class participation, individual and group assignments, regular quizzes, oral presentations, peer assessments, and portfolios. These diverse methods comprehensively evaluate students’ theoretical knowledge, practical skills, communication abilities, and ongoing progress in data processing.

Grading follows a scale from A to F, with A representing excellent performance, typically scoring around 70% or 80%, and F indicating failure, usually below 50% or 45%.
