Parents with children in Grade Three are Monday required to start enrolling them for a national assessment test.
According to a schedule released by the Kenya National Examinations Council-KNEC, the registration exercise will last two months beginning today.
This means school heads have two months to identify and register Grade Three pupils for the tests to be conducted by teachers.
In identifying the learners, KNEC wants all registrations to be done through its portal using data from Ministry of Education National Education Management Information System-NEMIS.
The schedule, sent to school heads, explains that the pupils will sit the Kenya Early Years Assessment (KEYA) examination in English activities, Mathematics activities and an integrated paper.
The integrated paper will comprise Kiswahili activities, environmental activities, movement activities, creative activities, religious activities, and hygiene and nutrition activities.
KNEC acting CEO Mercy Karogo said the assessments will help the government understand the implementation of the new curriculum and inform improvements in delivery.
All pupils will transit to the next class after the exam. The results will be released back to schools for action.
