Just in ;KCPE Results 2022 To Be Released
2022 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination results are expected to be released anytime from today.
This is after a revelation that has indicated that preparations are currently ongoing.
Before the release, the president of the republic of Kenya must be briefed of the results before they are officially out to the public.
As of yesterday the President of Kenya his Excellency Willam Ruto wass out of the country for official duties but was expected land anytime . Meaning that means the results could be released today or tomorrow.
Hon Ezekiel Machogu, the Cs. For eduction said the results for the 1.2 million candidates will be released without any case of exam malpractice.
In a statement machogu noted “We are announcing KCPE examination results and you will not hear any cases of cheating under the leadership of Machogu. He added ,” grading of Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) is progressing well and I can assure you, the results will not be riddled with any irregularities.”
Machogu further assured parents and teachers that the examination results will come out without any questionable issues.
He also added “ that no one should peddle misinformation that in such and such place, there are problems. And there will be no problems at all. We will serve our people efficiently and effectively,”
In reference to a circular dated 1st November 2022, from Principal Secretary (PS) for Basic Education, the candidates will join Form one on 30th January 2023.
KCPE marking of multiple choice papers as well as essay writings i.e. Insha and Composition papers already ended.
It should be noted that in this year, KCPE examiners only marked the English Composition and Kiswahili Insha papers.
For multiple choice papers i.e Mathematics, English, Kiswahili, Science and Social Studies the marking was done by the modern Optical Mark Recognition (OMR).
OMR is a machine which electronically scores the papers. The OMR captures marked data from candidates’ answer sheets using specialised scanning.
The machines work with a dedicated scanning device that shines a beam of light on the paper. The contrasting reflection at predetermined positions on a page is used to detect marked areas as they reflect less light than the blank areas of the paper.
The standardization for 2021 KCPE exams saw mathematics getting 0.83 while science had 0.82.
What this means is for example if a candidate scores 40 ticks in mathematics this means the maximum of 40 ticks will be 40 multiplied by 2 multiplied by 0.83 to get 66% and if he or she scores 50 ticks it becomes 83% which is the highest mark.
Under the standardization highest score saw Mathematics getting 83% Science 82% Social studies and Religion 83% English 89% while Kiswahili 91%.
On the other hand some examiners say there are some changes in the November KCPE exams standardization especially for Science, Mathematics and English.
