The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) has released new instructions on how to assess and upload the KCSE project marks. In the new marking scheme, milestone 1 and 2 assessment areas have been separated.
Here is the circular;
SUBJECT: REVIEW OF THE INDIVIDUAL CANDIDATE’S ASSESSMENT SHEET FOR THE KCSE COMPUTER STUDIES PROJECT (451/3)
1.0 The Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) uploaded the KCSE Computer Studies Project paper (451/3) and all related documents for use in assessing and recording the candidate’s project work.
2.0 However, KNEC has established that the Individual Candidate’s Assessment Sheet and the scoring guide are not in harmony in terms of the scores awarded in each section. In addition, the assessment sheet does not include all the areas to be assessed as indicated in the scoring guide.
3.0 KNEC has subsequently revised the assessment sheet to include all the areas to be assessed in order to guide the subject teachers appropriately.
4.0 The subject teachers are therefore advised to download the revised assessment sheet and use it to assess the candidates’ work for Milestone 1 and upload the scores by 15th October 2021, when the portal for keying the scores will be closed.
