The Kenya National Examination Council has numerous portals used to capture learners information at their various levels of studies. One of the platforms is the KNEC Grade 3 MLP portal. So, what is it, and how can you use it?

As the country transitions the current 8:4:4 curriculum system to the new 2-6-3-3 (competency-based curriculum), the examination body has devised ways to monitor the learners progress. The body had a portal, which is used as a communication tool between it and the teachers. Through it, teachers can access assessment materials, timetable and much more.

Scoring and reporting of learners results

As each learner performs activities individually or in groups to respond to the presented authentic tasks, the classroom teacher observes, assesses and records the evidence of demonstrated competencies. The teacher will be guided by the rubrics provided by KNEC to determine the learners level of performance.

They include;

  • Exceeding expectations
  • Meeting expectations
  • Approaching expectations
  • Below expectations

While assessing the learner, the teacher is also required to note the strengths and weaknesses and suggest strategies for improvement. Scoring and recording each learners performance is to be done on each tasks assessment sheet.

Once the administration of tasks to learners and the subsequent scoring is complete, the class teacher, with the school administrations assistance, is expected to prepare two main reports.

  • For KNEC. In which the performance scores of each learner shall be uploaded to the KNEC website.
  • For each learner. A School Year Report (SYR) at grade 3 is to be availed to each parent/guardian.

Using the KNEC Grade 3 MLP portal is straightforward. The detailed guide above gives the procedure required to access information on Grade 3 learners.

Tuko.co.ke recently published an article on the KNEC portal and how to upload LCBE assessments in 2021. To make work easier for schools and teachers, the ministry introduced a website-based portal known as Learning Continuity in Basic Education (LCBE).

The portal contains the necessary tools needed to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each learner. Knowing how to upload LCBE assessments into the portal is, therefore, vital for teachers.
