On April 21, the Ministry of Education (MoE) sent a circular reminding teachers and parents of the good news that examination materials for grades 3, 4, and 5 will soon be made available on its online portal.
A remarkable adjustment to the educational system was recently announced in a circular. The cutting-edge Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) portal will provide grade 3 pupils with access to their exam materials starting on June 5th, 2023. This new method will undoubtedly transform how students study for examinations and give them a quick and easy way to access their resources.
A memo has been circulated among headteachers, requesting them to take charge of downloading and conducting exams. Once the exams are completed, the results must be uploaded to KNEC no later than August 11, 2023.
The essential papers to be uploaded comprise the third-grade instruments for the Kenya Early Years Assessment (KEYA) and the Kenya Foundation Level Education Assessment (KFLEA), which cater to the distinctive requirements of learners with exceptionalities.
The memo highlights that the School Based Assessment (SBA) instruments for students in grades 4, 5, and 6 will be available on the portal in a range of formats, including Portable Document Format (PDF) and digital Format.
How to access the Tools
To gain access to the CBA portal located at http://www.cba.knec.ac.ke, headteachers are kindly requested to utilize their unique usernames and passwords.
According to KNEC, the much-awaited grade 5 & 6 exams will have their materials released on July 10, 2023. Heads of institutions are expected to upload the results by August 11, 2023. It’s time to gear up for the upcoming exams and ensure that our young learners are well-prepared to showcase their knowledge and skills.
Despite the challenges, the Sub-County Directors, primary school heads, and special schools have been entrusted with the important task of administering the assessment tools, evaluating the learners, and uploading the results to the CBA portal. This responsibility requires a great deal of attention to detail and a commitment to accuracy, as the results will be used to inform future educational decisions.
The circular instructed educational institutions to utilize their unique usernames and passwords to gain access to the Portal. Once logged in, they can easily retrieve the assessment tools in PDF format and proceed to download them without any hassle.
