All KNEC Examiners to be Vetted by DCI and NIS, KNEC told
All KNEC Examiners to be Vetted by DCI and NIS, KNEC told. KASNEB has provided the Council with policy recommendations to help the Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) tests.
In order to decrease instances of cheating, KASNEB CEO Richard Leting encouraged the council to enlist the DCI and NIS in the screening of the National Examination administrators.
According to Richard Leting, CEO of the Kenya Accountants and Secretaries National Examination Board (KASNEB), the board periodically examines its employees using the DCI and NIS.
When something questionable is discovered during the background investigation, the application is rejected, according to Leting.
According to Leting, KNEC will be able to stop cheating in National Examinations if they implement this approach.
In order to ensure that examiners are not readily persuaded to stop cheating, he further encouraged the council to expand human resources and pay the examiners and Contracted Professionals on time.
“At KASNEB, we promptly pay our examiners. They receive their compensation if they finish marking on Friday and the report is released on Monday, according to Richard.
While test management specialist Richard Leting was testifying before the Education Committee of the National Assembly, he made these remarks.
The CEO of KASNEB further stated that following comprehensive examination by the DCI and NIS, they change their examiners every three years.
Leting stated, “Our officers choose the examinations right before the session, which is in the morning and in the afternoon.
The Kenya National Examination Council (KNEC) has often said that the country’s rising rate of exam misconduct is mostly due to early disclosure of the exam.
They said that this was brought on by the Center managers taking exams for the entire day by hand from the containers in the morning.
The Kenya National Examination Council opens a window every time someone wants to apply to be an exam administrator, and the window is only available for a certain amount of time.
KNEC hired a number of people in 2022, including;
- 9,172 Supervisors
- 49,131 invigilators
- 10,516 center managers
- 21,078 security officers
- 2,319 drivers
