KNEC Deadline For Uploading Assessment Scores.Public and private schools have until August 11, 2023, to upload the results of the national assessment for students in grades 3, 4, 5, and 7, which is administered by the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec).
Knec had published circulars to direct the assessment of the students and had offered assessment tools that schools had to download and use.
By August 11th, teachers had to grade and transmit the assessment results to the online platform.
The first stage of the assessment, which included a project and practical activities, has been completed in the majority of schools.
Knec had also asked schools to register Grade 3 and 7 learners before uploading their scores because they were not on the system.
On projects and practicals the Grade 3 learners did Integrated Learning Assessment (ILA). This assessment integrated all learning areas in Grade 3.
Grade 4 and 5 did projects and practicals for seven subjects. These were; Agriculture, Art and Craft, Music, Science and Technology, Social Studies, Home Science and Physical and Health Education.
Grade 7 learners did practicals and projects for nine subjects. These were; Performing Arts, Visual Arts, English, Home Science, Integrated Science, Health Education, Physical Education and Sports, Islamic Religious Education and Hindu Religious Education.
The Grade 4 and 5 learners together with Grade 3 and 7 will have their Knec written exams next term starting 2nd October to 26th October.

In pdf format, Schools will access the tools in PDF format and download.
The assessment tools will then be given to learners in either printed format, projected on the screen or written on the board.
Depending on the format adopted, learners may write their responses on the question paper or on the provided writing materials provided by the school.
Knec further said the assessment tools with coloured images should be printed in colour or loaded on the digital devices available in the school.
Using different answer papers that the school has provided, the students should respond to the questions. The exams should be carried out in shifts in schools with subpar digital equipment.
All records and evidence resulting from the assessments must be maintained by the headteacher.
The items needed for the assessments should be found around the school or, to the greatest extent possible, improvised.
