ABSTRACT

Kamariny zone is in Kamariny division of Keiyo district in Rift Valley Province of

Kenya. There has been a successive decline of mathematics performance in this

Kamariny academic zone year —in-year-out for the last five years. Researchers have been

silent over this deterioration yet mathematics stems key combinations for secondary,

higher academic courses and the day to day social-economic activities of the community.

If mathematics performance continues deteriorating it implies that the country will not

effectively participate and succeed in modern technology as either a potential consumer

or producer. The objectives of the study were to investigate, analyze and determine the

assessment and academic performance of mathematics in Kamariny zone. Study guide

and questionnaires to respondent for acquiring information were given to 4 Head

teachers, pupils, zonal inspector, centre tutor (TAC Tutor), 10 parents and any literate

persons were served with questionnaires. The non-literate persons were verbally

interviewed using the interview guides for facilitating the required information. Other

specimen from the study environment were photocopied or extracted with the institutions

agreements. Collected data was analyzed using frequency tables, graphs and written

recommendation.

The findings of this study have clearly confirmed that mathematics has been poorly

performed in the zone in comparison with other subjects assessed in all levels I-Ill, IVVII

and VIII. Mathethatics at national level assessment KCPE was the least scored

53.35% compared to science which was 55.49%. When compared for the five years from

2002-2006performance has been reducing yearly from 63% in2002 to 53.35% in2006.

Exams are set locally within the school, zonal level, divisional, district and national level

and managed within the same. The frequency of administering these examinations differs

in each school increasing from lower and highest being in class VIII. The majority of the

parents are farmers who are 55%, employed 25%, business or self- employed 17% and

others 3%. Assessment is an important core instrument which patrols promising

development of learning in schools, Kamariny zone and Kenya at large . Assessment

should then be fully facilitated in line with the learning objectives and education goals in general.
