Ministry Assures Timely Payments of Examiners as Kipsang Calls for Trust .Dr. Belio Kipsang, the principal secretary for the state department of basic education, has guaranteed instructors in charge of exams prompt payment.
Dr. Kipsang claimed that in order to prevent issues, Education Ministry has taken steps to ensure that everyone involved in the administration of national examinations—including examiners, invigilators, examiners, and security personnel—will be paid on time.
In addition, there is need to address a lack of tests while urging teamwork to guarantee that they offer a credible examination.
He equally claimed that involving police was unnecessary. However,he’s said that this would only be feasible if students had confidence in their teachers’ abilities to conduct reliable assessments.
“We now make an effort to reduce this lack of trust during national exams. The confidence we once had in the teaching profession needs to be restored. Why do we set, administer, and grade mock examinations but not notice when they leak? National tests can be used as well, as per to Dr. Kipsang.
So as to order for students to properly prepare for exams, the PS also advised schools avoid organizing extracurricular activities during the third trimester.
Finally he asked teachers to stop sending pupils home for school expenses during the third semester, especially candidates.
Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), Kenya Primary School Education Assessment (KPSEA), and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education Examinations (KCSE) are the three national exams that approximately 3.5 million students are expected to sit for .
