The results revealed a significant statistical differences (∞= 0.05) in the formative evaluation practices due to gender and class size, while it did not show a statistical significant difference due to the training courses. The results also showed statistical significant differences in summative evaluation practices due to the size of the class but did not show significant statistical differences due to teachers’ gender and training courses.
