The Grade Six national exam results will be made public on January 16, 2023, according to the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC).
KNEC CEO David Njeng’ere announced that students would receive results of the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) exam via their school portal while speaking at Mtihani House on December 21.
“The learners will get individual reports and all these are going to be uploaded on the school portal on January 16, 2023,” Njeng’ere stated
He made it clear that the results would be used to track student progress rather than place candidates in junior secondary institutions.
The KNEC Chief stated that three reports on KPSEA would be made public by the testing organization: individual, school-specific, and nationwide.
“The national report will provide feedback to educational stakeholders on areas that require intervention. It will indicate the proportion of learners at each performance level per subject where we need to do interventions.
“Each school will receive specific reports that will delineate the areas that learners had challenges so that they can continue in the journey of improvement,” he explained.
Njeng’ere maintained that the national report will be shared with the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD).
In addition, the Teachers Service Commission (TSC) and officers in the Ministry of Education will get a copy of the same to provide guidelines on the adjustments to the Competency-Based-Curriculum (CBC).
The KNEC CEO maintained that the candidates will be retained in their primary schools for their junior secondary education.
1,287,597 Grade Six pupils registered for the 2022 KPSEA national exams.
