KNEC Reveals Plans After KPSEA Grade 6 Assessment Results
Kenya National Examination Council CEO David Njengere has revealed plans to use Grade 6 national assessment to inform adjustments needed in CBC.
This is after President William Ruto directed that the assessment should no longer be used to place Grade 6 learners in junior secondary.
“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 said.
With TSC, Njengere said the results will help identify areas where teachers have been struggling to deliver.
Even with the ongoing teachers’ professional development, TSC will be able to pull weight on specific areas that need adjustment.
“We will inform TSC of specific areas where teachers are struggling to deliver in the curriculum,” he said.
For instance, if the results show most learners had issues comprehending cooking, then TSC will have to inculcate that in their training.
In the report, the stakeholders said KPSEA will be used to monitor learning progress.
“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 role of the Ministry of Education will be pegged on equity, access to education, and the general running of CBC.
“The same will also be given to the ministry, quality assurance they can now check how teachers are implementing the curriculum based on the assessment,” Njengere said.
