The 2021 Uwezo assessment focused on the ability of children to read and comprehend English and Kiswahili, as well as complete basic numeracy tasks, set at grade 3 level. In appreciation of the fact that Kenya is currently implementing two different curricula at the primary school level, we administered different tests to learners in classes 5-8 set at class 5 level. This report, however, focuses on the learners under the competency based curriculum (CBC) - grade 4 in particular - who were expected to have completed the grade 3 level work by the time of the assessment. The report further highlights school factors that influence learning and underscores observable inequalities as well as reckons with the underlying drivers of learning outcomes and their distribution.
