Relief for 8 Year-Old Students as KNEC Says The Wont Be Ranked From It

Grade 3 learners set to sit their first national assessment in September will not be ranked, the Kenya National Examinations Council (Knec) has said.

Speaking in Nairobi on Monday, acting Chief Executive Officer Mercy Karogo also announced the council will not release the results for individual schools or learners. Dr Karogo maintained that the Kenya Early Years Assessment (KEYA) is a national assessment and not an examination.

She explained that an assessment provides large-scale feedback on learning outcomes at the formative stages for decision making while an examination is a summative assessment given for individual achievement, selection and placement.

“The KEYA assessment tools shall be distributed to all the curriculum support officers, who shall coordinate with the head teachers in their respective zones to administer the assessment in September,” said Dr Karogo.

She said the schools will administer and score the learning outcomes in the assessment tools.
