The National Examinations Council of Tanzania (NECTA) presents Candidates’ Item Response Analysis (CIRA) on the Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (CSEE) which was done in November 2022.

This summative evaluation report provides feedback to all educational stakeholders on the factors that affected the candidates’ performance in the English Language subject.

The report highlights their performance on each question from the topics in which they were tested.

Analysis shows that the candidates with good performance on different questions demonstrated competence and knowledge in different areas of which they were tested.

These include Writing Formal Letters and CV, Dictionary Use, Listening to and Understanding Simple Texts about a Variety of Events and Situations, Expressing Likes and Dislikes, Talking about Past Events/Activities, Giving Descriptions, Reading Information from Different Sources, Writing a Variety of Texts, Writing using Appropriate Language, Content and Style, Writing Formal Letters and Interpreting Literary Works.

However, some candidates did not perform well on various questions due to their lack of competence and knowledge of different topics.

These candidates faced difficulties in understanding the demands of the questions and expressing themselves in English.

NECTA expects that all educational stakeholders will use the feedback and recommendations provided in this report to improve teaching and learning as well as candidates’ performance in the future examinations by the Council.

This Candidates’ Item Response Analysis (CIRA) presents candidates’ performance in the English Language subject in the Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (CSEE), which was conducted in November 2022.

The examination was set for both school and private candidates, following the 2005 English Language syllabus and the 2019 English Language subject examination format.

The analysis was done based on each question and item.

It indicates the requirement of each question, the expected responses from the candidates and sample responses from the candidates’ scripts.

The questions analyzed were set from various topics focusing on competencies such as Writing Formal Letters; Writing Curriculum Vitae; Dictionary Use; Writing a Variety of Texts; Expressing Likes and Dislikes; Expressing Personal and Group Routines; Talking about Past Events/Activities; Giving Descriptions; Reading Information from Different Sources; Writing a Variety of Texts; Expressing On-going Activities; Writing Using Appropriate Language, Content and Style; Writing Formal Letters; and Reading and Interpreting Literary Works.
