Grade 6 KPSEA Results Out Today
Today on Monday, January 16, almost 1.26 million students who took the summative assessment for the sixth grade will receive their results.
A top Knec official confided to the Star that the initial plan to reveal results on Monday remains in effect.
“We are working towards that as we had earlier promised in December, and we will have the results on Monday, in case of anything the council will communicate,” the official said.
During the December announcement of KCPE results, KNEC CEO David Njengere stated that the results will be presented in three reports.
This follows suggestions by the education review team to eliminate KPSEA as a seventh-grade placement tool.
“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.
Therefore, the exams council agreed to use the results to evaluate the development of the Competency-Based Curriculum.
This indicates that the results will no longer be used to determine which school a learner attends, as they will remain in primary school.
It will guide teachers on areas requiring intervention in teaching and learning.
Individual Learner Reports, School-Specific Reports, and a National Report on School-Based Assessment and Summative Assessments have been included in the report.
The national report will be utilized to offer stakeholders in education with feedback on intervention-required areas.
The report will indicate the percentage of learners at each permanency level for each subject and strand,” he said.
Njengere stated that the scope of school-specific reports will be limited to certain schools.
Additionally, the learners will receive Individual student reports that detail their success in specific subjects or strands.
“This will include acquisition of values and core competencies and performance level in specific subjects,” Njengere added.
By January 16, parents and students will have access to their results through school websites.
Njengere stated that TSC results will assist in identifying areas where teachers have struggled to deliver.
Even with the continued professional development of teachers, TSC will be able to exert influence over certain areas requiring modification.
He stated, “We will inform TSC of specific areas where teachers are struggling to deliver in the curriculum.”
For example, if the results indicate that the majority of students struggled to comprehend cookery, TSC will need to incorporate this into their training.
According to the report, KPSEA would be used to monitor learning progress.
The report reads, “It will be used as an assessment to track learning progress and provide feedback to education sector actors on areas requiring intervention.”
The Ministry of Education will focus on equity, access to education, and the general administration of the CBC.
