Magoha, Njeng’ere Fly To UK To Asses Printing of 2021 KCPE and KCSE Exams

KNEC to print national exams locally

Kenya may soon start printing its own national examination materials.

This is according to recommendations by the Presidential Working Party on Education Reforms.

In their report, the committee wants the government to develop the internal capacity of the Kenya National Examinations Council to print national examination materials.

Currently, both the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education(KCSE) and the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education(KCPE) are printed outside the country.

The former Education CS George Magoha had explained that the papers were printed overseas to protect the credibility of the national exams.

The Presidential Working Party of Education Reforms(PWPER) on Tuesday submitted its report to President William Ruto at State House, Nairobi.

PWPER also recommended a radical overhaul of the current architecture of quality assurance saying the government should harmonise its mandate.

The panel also wants the Ministry of Education’s quality assurance department handed legal authority to oversee quality assurance and standards function.

”This harmonisation of the quality assurance standard functions should be anchored in law,” the committee said.
