KUPPET Wants Secondary Teachers Excluded From Invigilating KCSE Exams

The Kenya Union of Post-Primary Education Teachers (KUPPET) has asked the Kenya National Examination Council to reconsider hiring secondary school teachers as KCSE exam invigilators.

Mr. Stephen Yogo, Executive Secretary of the Homa Bay branch, fears that the use of mobile phones by teachers could increase exam cheating, as some of them have covered the same course material as the students.

He mentioned that when you work as an English teacher, it’s common to feel tempted to correct a student when you see them making a mistake with prepositions.

“When you are an English teacher for instance, then you see a student writing a wrong preposition, you might be tempted to correct the student,” he said.

To prevent cheating on the KCSE exam, the union secretary suggested that the examination body employ primary and junior secondary school teachers as invigilators.

“If we do not want cases of cheating to increase, we advise they use primary school teachers and JSS teachers instead of secondary school teachers,” he maintained.

The Teachers Service Commission (TSC) vetted 223,223 teachers to serve as supervisors and invigilators in the national examinations. According to TSC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Nancy Macharia, 37,731 educators will administer examinations.

The Kenya National Examination Council will conduct sub-county briefing meetings across the country, and none of the 71,760 center administrators will delegate these meetings.

During the first week of October 2023, the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) will conduct sub-county briefing meetings across the country, at which the center managers will participate.

Due to the revised curriculum, this will be the final administration of the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) under the 8-4-4 system, and five classes remain to take the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination.
