The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has published the examination dates for the October 2023 Competency-Based Assessments (CBA) in Grades 3, 4, 5, and 7.
Students previously completed their projects and practicals between June 6th and August 10th. The assessments, which will be conducted by the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC), will now begin on October 2, 2023.
During these assessments, teachers will grade students’ performance on practical tasks using the instructions supplied. Any evaluation tools that require color photographs should be printed in color and submitted to any available digital platforms in schools.
