Cito experts for observation in Kazakhstan
Each year, in the beginning of March, Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools (NIS) and Cito organise an assessment contest to select the most gifted students for a six years educational program that will prepare these young children for an academic career. This year about 17,750 children, aged 10-12, will participate. The 20 schools, in 17 different cities, each have their own selection contest. Cito senior consultants Caroline Jongkamp and Nico Dieteren will monitor and evaluate the objectivity, quality and fairness of the process. Ms Jongkamp will visit the two schools in Astana, whereas Mr Dieteren will be welcomed by the two schools in Shymkent.
