TSC Has Started Choosing Teachers to Oversee KNEC Exams.
The process of compiling a list of educators who would supervise the administration of the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) tests in 2023 has been started by the Teachers Service Commission (TSC).
The Commission is now gathering data on the teachers who will be tasked with administering the exams through Curriculum Support Officers (CSO).
It is required of school principals to fill up and submit an Excel template with the information on the chosen teachers.
Name, Job Title, TSC Identification Number, Job Group, ID Number, Current School, Contact Number, KRA PIN, KPSEA (Kenya Primary School Education Assessment), and the enrollment information for KCPE (Kenya Certificate of Primary Education) and KCSE (Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education) are among the information included in this list.
28,408 teachers worked as centre managers, 28,727 as supervisors, 74,990 as invigilators, and 5,647 as examiners for the exams and evaluations in 2022.
In order to administer national tests to the 2.3 million students registered to take the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams this year, KNEC has confirmed that it has completed its preparations.
1,282,574 The KCPE exam will be taken by 1,415,315 candidates, the KCSE test will be taken by 903,260 candidates, and grade six children will take the KPSEA tests.
KNEC CEO David Njengere made the announcement while speaking at the 39th Association for Educational Assessment in Africa Conference, which was held at Nairobi’s Safari Park Hotel. He also said that candidate registration was finished and that the exam papers had been prepared, and that they would be given out in accordance with the schedule that had been set.
To prevent cheating during the national exams this year, the testing committee has increased security measures.
One of the most significant adjustments is that examiners will no longer gather the entire day’s exam papers in the morning. Centre managers, who are typically school principals, will only pick up the morning newspapers.
To move exam storage facilities closer to schools, KNEC also bought more containers. The time required to collect and distribute exam papers should be shortened as a result of this modification.
Examining officials will finish the morning papers and put them back in the container before collecting the afternoon papers. In order to prevent early access to afternoon exam papers, this alteration was made.
