On Monday, January 16, over 1.26 million pupils who took the Grade 6 summative assessment will receive their results.
A top Knec official told a local media outlet in confidence that the initial intention to release results on Monday remains unchanged.
“We are working towards that, as we had earlier promised in December, and we will have the results on Monday, in case the council has anything to communicate,” the official said.
KNEC CEO David Njengere stated during the release of KCPE results in December that the results would be released in three reports.
This is in response to proposals by the education review panel to abolish KPSEA as a 7th grade placement measure.
“We will get back to KICD and tell them areas that need to be adjusted in the curriculum designs, and we will do the same with TSC,” Njengere told the media.
As a result, the exam council chose to utilize the results to assess the progress of the competency-based curriculum.
This means that the scores will not be utilized to determine which school a learner will attend now that they are enrolled in primary school.
“It will guide teachers on strands that require intervention in teaching and learning,” Njengere said.
The report is divided into three sections:
- the Individual Learners Report,
- the School Specific Report, and
- the National Report on School-Based Assessment and Summative Assessment.
The national report will be used to provide feedback to education stakeholders on areas that require intervention.
“The report will indicate the proportion of learners at each of the permanence levels per subject and strand,” he said.
Njengere further stated that the scope of school-specific reports will be limited to individual schools.
Individual learner reports will also be provided to students, indicating their level of performance in specific subjects or “strands.”
“This will include acquisition of values and core competencies and performance level in specific subjects,” Njengere added.
By January 16, parents and children will be able to access their results through school websites.
Njengere stated that the TSC results will help identify places where teachers have been unable to deliver.
Even with continued teacher professional development, TSC will be able to exert influence in specific areas that require improvement.
“It will be used as an assessment to monitor learning progress and provide feedback to education sector players on areas that require intervention,” the report reads.
The Ministry of Education’s role will be focused on equity, access to education, and the overall operation of the CBC.
