KNEC To Give All Grade 3 Pupils Assessment Numbers Next Term

The kenya national examinations council, KNEC, has revealed plans to issue special assessment numbers to all grade 3 pupils next year, once they finish Grade 3.

This number will be used to facilitate the assessment of the learners as they begin Grade 4.The assessment number will be consistent throughout their education and will be used by KNEC in recording the learners’ assessment progress.

This means that should a learner opt to transfer from one school to the other, they will have to retain the assessment number.

A document by the Kenya National Examination Council spells that under the CBC school transfers will only be admissible to learners in between Grade 1 and 5. Learners under the Competency-Based Curriculum will not be allowed to transfer schools upon reaching Grade 6.

Upon reaching Grade 4 and 5, learners will be required to go to the sub-county director of education should they seek a transfer.

Those seeking transfers under CBC at that level—Grade 4 and 5—assessment number will be used to facilitate the transfer process.

The school where the learner was, will receive the transfer request online and click Accept/decline button.

A learner will be transferred to the new school upon acceptance by the headteacher.

“Learners not in the KNEC system at Grade 4 and 5 can be registered by both the sub-county director of education and the headteacher,” the document reads.

Under CBC assessment will be  in Grade 4, 5 and 6.

Under the new curriculum, transition from Grade 6 to junior high school will be based on a hybrid model involving a combination of CATs (Classroom Assessment Techniques) and KNEC tests.

Learners in the Competency-Based Curriculum will sit a final examination at the end of primary school, just like KCPE, but the test will not entirely decide their secondary school.

Learners will be required to take CATs at the end of Grades 4, 5 and 6 that will be part of the final mark the learners get at the end of primary school.

Each CAT will carry 20 per cent of the final mark. This means the three CATs will cumulatively account for 60 per cent of the final score.

The remaining 40 per cent will be from the Kenya National Examination Council exam to be issued administered the end of Grade 6.

Headteachers shall access the Competency Based Assessment through a KNEC portal: cba.knec.ac.ke using the school’s username and password.
