KUPPET welcomes the Government’s measures to enhance security and integrity in the administration of national exams, however they note with concern that examination officials have been neglected yet their perfomance is a critical factor in examination management. In their press release some of the action they would want the Government to take include;
Transport reimbursement for supervisors and invigilators in ASAL areas be reviewed upwards to since most of the areas are expansive. Counties like Wajir and Tana River should have their rates enhanced.
Science teachers need to be considered for allowances during practicals.Other practical subjects like Agriculture, Building and construction, music and Home sciences need to be considered too.
Lecturers in TTC who assess and submit marks to KNEC should be paid for their work.
KUPPET also recommend that examiners should be given certificate of attendance to help improve their CV’s for interviews. Marking rates per script should also be raised by atleast 50 percent.
The working hours during marking should be 8.00am to 5.00pm to avoid fatigue
KUPPET recommend that marking centres should be devolved and probably rotated around the country unlike now that they are only in Nairobi.
