KNEC Asked To Add 8 more Assessment Tools In CBC
The National Examinations Council (KNEC) has been urged to develop more relevant assessment tools to determine learners’ CBC performance.
According to John Mugo, executive director of Zizi Afrique, life skills are just as important as the other core subjects. Life skills are taught as a core subject in junior secondary school under the Competency-Based Curriculum.
Mugo says it has become necessary for the educational system to structure how these skills can be acquired, and the CBC has identified seven core competencies.
Communication and collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving, imagination and creativity, citizenship, learning to learn, self-efficacy, and digital literacy are the seven core competencies.
At all levels, the competencies are embedded in all learning areas. As the first cohort prepares to enter junior secondary school next year, it is unclear how some competencies will be assessed.
“We could do more together like the people who developed Grade 3 assessments also integrate an assessment of these competencies and not just English, Maths, and Kiswahili,” he said.
Mugo, on the other hand, clarified that assessing life-based competencies is difficult, urging KNEC to include all stakeholders. He emphasized the value of life skills in adapting to changing trends.
He claims that having competent values and skills gives applicants an advantage in securing opportunities. The CBC implementation is currently in Grade 5.
Learners will advance to Grade 6 on April 25, the start of the first term of the 2021-22 academic year.
Later this year, grade 6 students will take the first national CBC assessment test, the Kenya Certificate of Basic Education Exam (KCBE). In January 2023, 1.24 million pioneer KCBE candidates will begin attending junior secondary schools.
Beginning in April, approximately 60,000 teachers will be trained in CBC for junior secondary students. So far, the Ministry of Education has trained 229,000 teachers in CBC.
