In Summary
  • Knec Chief Executive Officer Mercy Karogo said the assessment will be done at the end of each tier of education.
  • Prof Magoha said the new curriculum will transform the country by identifying and nurturing students' potential.

Grade Three learners studying the new competency-based curriculum launched this year will now be subjected to a national assessment before proceeding to the next level.

The Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) announced that learners will be subjected to a test called Kenya Early Years Assessment.

Knec Chief Executive Officer Mercy Karogo said the assessment will be done at the end of each tier of education.

This is unlike the 8-4-4 curriculum where learners have been sitting their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education at the end of their year in Standard Eight.

The new curriculum embraces a 2-6-3-3-3 system.
