Learner-centred pedagogy is the hallmark of the ASEI-PDSI approach. The SMASSE/SMASE ASEI-PDSI pedagogy is an innovative approach that aims at shifting classroom practices from content based to activity-focused teaching and from teacher centered to learner-centered. Despite the use of the innovative approach, the KCPE grades in mathematics have remained persistently below average among public primary schools in Kajiado North Sub County. The purpose of the study was to examine the influence of ASEI-PDSI pedagogy on pupils’ performance in KCPE mathematics in public primary schools in Kajiado North Sub County, Kenya. The study specifically aimed at assessing the influence of teachers’ use of ASEI-PDSI pedagogy, head teachers’ supervision of teachers’ use of ASEI-PDSI pedagogy, and teachers’ attitude towards the use of ASEI PDSI pedagogy on pupils’ performance in KCPE mathematics in public primary schools in Kajiado Sub County. The study was anchored on Brunner theory of constructivism. The study adopted cross-sectional survey research design. The study targeted 14 head teachers and 39 mathematics teachers. Through census sampling technique, all the 14 head teachers were sampled while simple random sampling was used to sample 28 mathematics teachers.   Data were collected through teachers’ questionnaires, head teachers’ interview schedule, and mathematics lesson observation rating scale. Pilot testing involved teachers and head teachers from the neighbouring Kajiado East Sub County. The content and construct validity of the data collection instruments was ascertained by presenting the instruments for scrutiny by the researcher’s two university supervisors.
