Knec sets deadline for uploading Grade 4, Class 8 scores to 20/11/2020 (Circular)

To:      All Head teachers

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

1.0     As you are aware, the Kenya National  Examinations Council  ( KNEC),  on behalf of the Ministry of Education( MoE) conducted school- based learning assessments for 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.

2.0     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.

3.0      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.

4.0      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:

4.1    The deadline for uploading  the scores has been  extended to 20th November, 2020.

4.2    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”

4.3    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 lcbe@knec.ac.ke.  The file  shall be processed within two (2)  weeks and feedback shall be given.

4.4     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 :

a)  0715477646

b)  0772069891

5.0      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.

Dr.  Mercy G. Karogo, MBS

Ag. CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
