Kenya – KNEC (Kenia National Examination Council)
The current curriculum in Kenya dates back to the years of the British Empire and it does not meet contemporary requirements. Both in primary, as well as in secondary education the focus has shifted from the transfer of knowledge to the transfer of skills. A new curriculum requires suitable assessments. And this is where Cito’s expertise comes into play. Cito has, in close collaboration with KNEC, designed an Assessment Framework, furthermore it provides training modules for teachers in different subjects regarding competency based assessments, and Cito supports KNEC in the process of writing a tender for assessment software.
