Grade 6 Final Assessment Ready; All You Should Know
Prof Magoha also stated that the transition for students with special needs and disabilities pursuing the Stage-Based Pathway will be based on performance in the Kenya Intermediate Level Education Assessment (KILEA).
The Grade Six students are scheduled to take their final exam from November 28 to November 30.
The summative assessment will account for 40% of the learners’ overall score.
Prof Magoha stated that Knec will use five papers to assess the 13 subjects offered at the upper primary level.
Mathematics, English, Kiswahili/Kenyan Sign Language, Integrated Science (which includes Science and Technology, Agriculture, Home Science, and Physical and Health Education), Creative Arts and Social Studies (which combines four subjects, including Social Studies, Christian Religious Education/Islamic Religious Education/Hindu Religious Education, Art and Craft, and Music), and Physical and Health Education are among them.
The remaining 60 points came from school-based assessments given in Grades Four (20%), Five (20%), and Six (20%). (20 percent).
According to Prof. Magoha, the overall score will be reported as a sum of the scores in the five papers and will be out of 500 points.
According to the CS, Knec has implemented all relevant measures to ensure the credibility of School-Based Assessments (SBAs).
“Knec is administering the final Grade six SBA to the 2022 cohort between July 18 and September 9,” he said.
Prof Magoha stated that over 7,000 junior secondary classrooms had been completed thus far.
