The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has officially extended the deadlines to upload the school-based assessment scores for Grade 4 and Standard 8 to 20th of November 2020.

Through a circular (KNEC/CS/GEN/R&QA/2020/015) dated 11th of November 2020, signed by the KNEC CEO, Dr. Mercy Karogo, and addressed to all school head teachers, the examinations’ council acknowledged that teachers were experiencing difficulties in uploading the assessment scores.

“It has, come to the attention of KNEC that the uploading exercise has been faced with challenges, which have slowed the process of uploading,” wrote Dr. Karogo.

New Directives Issued by KNEC to Address the Challenges in Uploading the Grade 4 and Class 8 Assessment Scores

Cognizant of the challenges, and in order to ensure effective capture of all scores and allow for reliable reporting, KNEC gave out the following direction:

  • The deadline for uploading the scores has been extended to 20th November 2020.
  • Schools shall upload the dully filled Excel file, that was downloaded from the KNEC system, without real-time processing of scores. Upon successful uploading, an auto-message will be sent to the schools informing them that “processing shall be done within two (2) weeks
  • Schools which may have challenges in uploading as guided in 4.2 above, will attach the dully filled Excel file downloaded from the KNEC system, and send to the following KNEC e-mail address Icbe@knec.ac.ke. The file shall be processed within two (2) weeks and feedback shall be given.

KNEC CEO ended the circular by calling upon all the school heads to ensure that the assessment scores are uploaded in time.

RE: SCHOOL BASED ASSESSMENTS UNDER THE LEARNING CONTINUITY IN BASIC EDUCATION PROJECT

  • As you are aware, the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC), on behalf of the Ministry of Education(MoE) conducted school- based learning assessments to Grade 4 and Standard 8 under the Kenya GPE COVID-19 Learning Continuity in Basic Education Project. The overarching aim of the assessments was to establish learning gaps that may have been occasioned by the long period of closure due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, with a view to inform on interventions to be put in place towards addressing the gaps.
  • The Kenya National Examinations Council wishes to thank all Head teachers and teachers of the significant proportion of schools who have successfully uploaded the assessment scores, as well as those who are still uploading the scores.
  • It has, however, come to the attention of KNEC that the uploading exercise has been faced with challenges, which have slowed the process of uploading.
  • Cognizant of the challenges, and in order to ensure effective capture of all scores and allow for reliable reporting, KNEC wishes to give the following direction:
  • 1 The deadline for uploading the scores has been extended to 20th November 2020.
  • 2 Schools shall upload the dully filled Excel file, that was downloaded from the KNEC system, without real-time processing of scores. Upon successful uploading, an auto-message will be sent to the schools informing them that “processing shall be done within two (2) weeks
  • 3. Schools which may have challenges in uploading as guided in 4.2 above, will attach the dully filled excel file downloaded from the KNEC system, and send to the following KNEC e-mail address Icbe@knec.ac.ke. The file shall be processed within two (2) weeks and feedback shall be given.
  • 4 Schools which still face challenges while uploading the scores can contact their Sub county Directors of Education ( as guided in the Guidelines of Administration of Assessments uploaded on the KNEC portal), or contact KNEC directly on these following numbers :
  1. 0715477646
  2. 0772069891
  • I call upon all Head teachers to support the uploading of the scores to ensure timely feedback is given to enable schools adequately prepare their Class 8 pupils for examinations, and address the learning gaps in the CBC Grade 4 Class before transiting to Grade 5.
