The government has cleared the air on the assessment of Grade 3 pupils, even as teachers took the pupils through rehearsals for the exercise Monday.
According to the Ministry of Education, no individual results will be provided.
Neither will there be report cards or ranking of schools in the ongoing national Monitoring Learners’ Progress (MLP) exercise under the competency-based curriculum (CBC).
In addition, all learners in Grade Three will proceed to Grade Four as the assessment will not be used for placement or transition to the next grade.
But while Education Principal Secretary Belio Kipsang said teachers are at liberty to administer the assessment at their convenience as long as all the tasks are given to the learners and assessed by the time schools close on October 25, 2019, teachers who spoke to the Nation on Monday said they have up to Friday this week to feed the outcome of the exercise into the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec) portal.
