The Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) has now raised serious questions on the mistakes that led to poor performance in the 2016 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams.
Through their Secretary General Wilson Sossion, KNUT claimed that the results were not in line with the normal curve that is to be expected in national examination results.
The teachers’ union has further claimed that the poor performance was as a result of failures at the Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC) that was in charge of the process.
Particularly, KNUT has stated that there were three critical mistakes that contributed to the low grades from candidates.
1. Poor Coordination in the Marking Scheme
KNUT has claimed that the marking scheme for the 2016 KCSE exam was arrived at without the involvement of the examiners.
The examiners were also not allowed to interact with the papers that they were marking as has been the tradition in the past.
