The CS also urged parents to stop putting pressure on the learners since the assessments are not examinations. He also asked teachers to be able to administer the assessments by using readily available materials.
"I urge colleagues from the education sector to ensure that the Grade Four assessments that begins next week goes on as planned. The Kenya National Examinations Council has already provided guidelines on this important assessment, which is part of the successful in implementation of the Competency Based Curriculum," said Magogha.
