The Competence-based Curriculum (CBC) pioneer national assessments will be administered by the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) towards the end of this year.


The program is only for students with disabilities.


The council’s CEO, David Njegere, informed junior education officials in a circular that the exam will take place in November and December.


The CBC learning approach is being used for the first time in a nationwide exam.


The tests will be given in two ways, according to KNEC, one for typical students, including those with modest disabilities, and the other for students with more severe conditions or disabilities.

the Kenya Inter-Mediate Level Education Assessment will be the name of the tests (KILEA).


The KCPE under the 8-4-4 system, which learners complete before finishing their primary level schooling after eight years, has been replaced by this.


Students will take the KILEA, which consists of four exams covering four different subject areas: communication, social and literacy skills, daily living skills, and religious education; numeracy; environmental and psychomotor activities; sensory motor integration; and creative activities.


After completing a school-based assessment (SBA) for the intermediate level, the students should be registered by KNEC and given an assessment number before sitting the test.


The exams council has stated once more that at least one SBA’s results must be submitted to its website.


Teachers are expected to grade the test takers after they have completed them and upload the results to the portal.


The necessary supplies will either be improvised or acquired from the classroom setting because this is a practical form of learning.


By July 15, 2022, KNEC will post sample KILEA papers for schools to view through their individual portals.
