KNEC Bans Primary And JSS Teachers From KCSE Invigilation. The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) will no longer be administered by primary school teachers.
Primary school teachers who had been invited to supervise the KCSE exams have already been removed off the list by Curriculum Support Officers (CSOS).
Only the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and the Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA) will be administered by primary school teachers. The Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) will be administered by secondary school teachers.
Teachers of junior secondary schools (JSS) won’t be in charge of any national exams this year, on the other hand.
All teachers who have been sent to administer the KCSE exams, according to Knec, should perform their new duties, log onto the CP2 portal, complete their information, and print their deployment letters.
Additionally, the deployment gateway is configured to prevent primary school teachers from being dispatched to administer KCSE exams.
The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) has approved 223,223 teachers to serve as supervisors and invigilators for the 2023 national exams.
37,731 teachers have also been cleared by the Commission to serve as assessors this year.
A total of 2.3 million students will take the KCPE and KCSE exams this year, which will be run by Knec.
The KCPE test will be taken by about 1,415,315 people, and the KCSE test will be taken by another 903,260.
The head of the Kenya National Examination Council, David Njengere, said that plans have been made for the candidates, who include 1,282,574 sixth-graders who will take the KPSEA.
Tests for KCSE, KCPE, and KPSEA in 2023 will be held in 1,143 containers.
Njengere said that the 576 distribution sites, also known as containers, will be used to store KPSEA and KCPE exams.
He also said that 567 cases will be used to hand out KCSE papers.
Njengere said, “The council has bought an extra 82 containers to make sure we can speed up this process, especially since 13 newly created sub-counties didn’t have any containers.”
Machogu told everyone working on the national exams to do their jobs in a very professional way and follow the rules that had been set.
He said that anyone caught doing wrong would not be spared by the ministry.
