The Kenya national Examination last year examined class eight and grade four learners with a view to ascertaining their readiness to continue learning after a long holiday.
The learners who reported to school in October are now doing their third term having completed their Second that ended on December 23rd.
Kenya national Examination council in collaboration with global Education patnership(GEP) funded the testing excercise where-by teachers were supposed to download the exam, administor, mark and upload the results.
The Council was then Supposed to analyse the results and share it with various stakeholders for possibile interventions should there be learning gaps.
Now, it's emerging that learniners were really affected by the long holiday as a big number of them didn't score over 50% which is an average Mark.
The worrying statistics will force all the stakeholders back to the drawing board to craft quick interventions especially for the candidate classes.
The Examination Council has scheduled March as the time when class eight and form four will be sitting for their final exams.
Teachers therefore have to work round the clock to prepare the learners by completing the syllabus ahead of time and spare sometime to revise.
