1,268,830 Grade 6 learners who sat for KPSEA 2022 examinations will get their results on Monday, January 16, 2023. Unlike KCPE 2022 results, KPSEA results will not be used for placement of grade six learners to junior secondary schools.

According to the Kenya National Examinations Council CEO, David Njeng’ere, KNES will release three reports.

Individual learners, school-specific reports, and the national report on school-based and summative assessment are the three reports.

The national report will highlight the areas that require assistance as well as the number of learners at each performance level per topic who require intervention.

The individual school report will be tailored to each school and will highlight areas where students face difficulties and where schools require further assistance.

The paper, according to David Njeng’ere, would be critical to KNEC, the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), and the Ministry of Education as they all continue to transition to the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

The KPSEA candidates, like the KCPE candidates, took five multiple-choice exam papers. They took Math, English, Kiswahili, Integrated Science, Creative Arts, and Social Studies classes.

According to a statement from the Presidential Working Party on Education Reform (PWPER), junior secondary schools for grades 7, 8, and 9 will be housed in existing primary schools.

In January 2023, Grade 6 students will enter the junior secondary portion at Grade 7.

According to the task force, the Ministry of Education will offer the appropriate rules on how this would be accomplished.

The marking of KCPE Insha and Composition papers commenced on Monday and will take a few days to complete.

Knec had sent invitation letters to teachers who applied for marking of 2022 KCPE and KCSE exams.

The invitation letters started trickling in last week after KCPE and KPSEA exams were done ended on 30th November 2022.

Knec had invited KCPE and KCSE examiners to apply online for this years marking from 25th November, 2022 and 5th December, 2022 respectively.

For KCPE the examiners will mark the English Composition and Kiswahili Insha papers. In the last KCPE exam done in March 2022 the marking of the papers took two weeks.

However there will be no manual marking for Grade 6 KPSEA exams. This is because there were no essay writings like Composition and Insha.

Insha and Composition papers contribute forty per cent in the final Kiswahili and English papers respectively.

Around 1,268,830 Grade 6 learners sat for KPSEA exams while 1,230,000 candidates did KCPE exams and Form 4 for KCSE were about 880,000.

Knec however changed the reporting date for KCSE examiners because most teachers are still supervising and invigilating the ongoing KCSE exams. The reporting date has been changed to January 2.

Chief examiners and assistant chief examiners coordination will report on December 21 while Subject team leaders will now report on December 26..

KPSEA candidates did five multiple choice exam papers just like the KCPE candidates. They did Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, Integrated Science and Creative Arts and Social Studies.

KCPE candidates did Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, Science and Social Sudies.

Grade 6 and Class 8 students had their index and assessment numbers and names printed on the answer sheet to ease marking.

The marking of multiple-choice questions will be done by the modern Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) which electronically scores the papers. The OMR captures marked data from candidates’ answer sheets using specialised scanning.

The machines work with a dedicated scanning device that shines a beam of light on the paper. The contrasting reflection at predetermined positions on a page is used to detect marked areas as they reflect less light than the blank areas of the paper.

With the new machines, scripts are marked in batches of 100 and 200 sheets, unlike the previous technology, which took hours.

During the marking of last years exams there was a standoff between teachers and Knec over pay.

Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) wanted the exam agency to raise marking fees for each script by at least Sh50, citing harsh economic times.

Kuppet argued that papers like Chemistry Paper 1, Mathematics and English Paper 1 should each be paid at not less than sh100. Presently marking each paper attracts between Sh51 to Sh58.

“Science teachers (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) need to be considered for allowances during practical. Other practical subjects like Agriculture, Building & Construction, Music and Home Sciences should be considered too,” said Kuppet secretary general Akello Misori.

On the overall conditions of teachers working conditions, Kuppet wanted marking centres to be devolved and probably rotated around the country unlike now when they are only in Nairobi.

The union wanted the working hours during marking be fixed between 8.00 am to 5.00 pm to avoid fatigue.

And after the examination administration processes, Kuppet wanted the teachers awarded certificates.

“Examiners should be given Certificates of Attendance to help improve their CVs for interviews during promotions,” said Misori.
