On Friday, June 3, KNEC Chief Executive Officer David Njengere stated that the final Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) for Grade Six will be presented in multiple choice format.
Njengere explained that the Grade Six exams, KPSEA, are based on the Basic Education Curriculum Framework, which was released by the Ministry of Education in 2019.
The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development created the framework (KICD). National assessments in Grades Three, Four, Five, and a portion of Grade Six are formative, while learners will sit for a summative assessment at the end of Grade Six.

Njengere explained that the tests have already been scheduled and are ready for administration.
He noted that because this is the first final assessment under the CBC, nothing has changed in the format.
The mode of assessment will consist of a combination of formative assessment administered by teachers in Grades Four, Five, and Six and a summative assessment administered by KNEC at the end of Grade Six.
Parents and students were concerned that the exams would not be administered in a multiple-choice format, but rather in the format used for the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Examinations (KCSE).

Grade Six students will be assessed in five subjects during the summative assessment: Mathematics and English on the first day, Integrated Science and Kiswahili on the second day, and Creative Arts and Social Studies on the third day.
According to the CEO of KNEC, over 1.25 million students will take the KPSEA before moving on to Junior Secondary School.
The marking will be done with the resources that are available, and the results will be released in accordance with the guidelines that have been established. Except for Composition and Kiswahili Insha, the KPSEA exams will be graded electronically because they are multiple choice.
