The Kenya National Examinations Council, KNEC, has released new assessment sheets that will be used to evaluate the project exams for the 2019 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education, KCSE, candidates.
The group IV project subjects includes Art & Design (442/3), Agriculture (443/3), Woodwork (444/2), Metal Work (445/2), Building Construction (446/2) and Computer Studies (451/2).
Contrary to previous years, this year KNEC has introduced two innovations relating to the assessment of the group IV subjects. The assessment will have two (02) key milestones, which must be completed by March 31st and July 15th, 2019 respectively.
Evaluation of first milestone will be undertaken from 1st March to 31st March, 2019. Schools can now access the new assessment sheets from the KNEC portal at https://www.knec-portal.ac.ke
The new assessment show the project areas to be evaluated and the candidates’ scores must be fed onto the system within the specified timelines for the two milestones. Milestone is slated for the 15th of June to the 15th of July, 2019.
The timelines within which the milestone should be observed/assessed and the areas to be evaluated have also been indicated on the assessment sheets.
According to the new instructions, photographs of students will be captured (while undertaking the projects) and uploaded with the scores under the two timelines. For Students taking Agriculture paper three, a group photo of the students standing next to their projects (dressed fully in the school uniform) will be taken together with the Principal and the Agriculture teacher.
