In Summary
  • The report also notes that there is poor performance in national examinations in rural and new schools.
  • The study was conducted across the country following poor KCSE results in 2016 and 2017.

Majority of candidates sitting for national examinations rarely go to the libraries to search for new knowledge, a report by the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers (Kuppet) has revealed.

The report dated November 2018, reveals that 60 percent of candidates for Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examinations which ended Wednesday rarely go to the library and instead revise past papers killing research and innovation among the learners.


“The study recommends an evaluation system that gives education a holistic approach to measure lifelong skills as opposed to summative evaluation,” reads the report on Assessment of 2016-2017 KCSE performance and its social economic impact in Kenya.

It notes that objective based assessment done is stressful to the learners and unfair since it tests the child under one environment after many years of study.
