KPSEA Grade 6 Exam Results To Be Released On January 16

    Over 1.6 million Grade 6 students who participated in the first Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) will receive their results on January 16, 2023.

    Kenya National Examinations Council CEO David Njeng’ere stated that the KNEC will issue three reports.

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

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

    The individual school report will be tailored to each school and will highlight areas where students are struggling and schools require additional support.

    According to David Njeng’ere, the paper will be crucial for KNEC, the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), the Teachers Service Commission (TSC), and the Ministry of Education as they continue to transition to the Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC).

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

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

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

    According to the task force, the Ministry of Education will provide the necessary rules to accomplish this.

    It also stated that the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) for Grade 6 will not be used for Junior Secondary School placement.
