The National Examinations Council of Tanzania (NECTA) among other things is mandated to administer Examinations at National level.

The Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (CSEE) is a summative evaluation after four years of study in secondary school level.

The CSEE aims at examining the competences acquired by the candidates after four years of study as per the 2010 Physics Syllabus for Secondary.

This Candidates Item Response Analysis (CIRA) report for the 2022 Physics subject Form Four National Examination (CSEE), has been prepared to provide feedback to education stakeholders about the responses given by the candidates in the examination items.

It helps in understanding reasons for the observed performance of the candidates in the Physics subject.

The report highlights factors that contributed to the candidates’ performance, including: failure to follow instructions, inability to understand the demand of the questions, poor English Language proficiency, inadequate knowledge about the concepts examined, lack of drawing skills and inability to solve numerical problems.

It is expected that the recommendations provided in this report will enable the policy makers, education administrators, school managers, teachers and candidates to identify proper measures to be taken in order to improve candidates’ performance in future examinations administered by the Council.

The Council would like to express its sincere appreciation to the examination officers, examiners and others who participated in the preparation of this report.

The Council is also grateful to staff members who were involved in processing the statistical data that have been used in this report.

This report presents an analysis of the candidates’ Items Responses in the 2022 Physics Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (CSEE).

The examination consisted of two papers namely, 031/1 Physics1 (Theory Paper) and 031/2 Physics 2 (Actual Practical Paper).

The Examination intended to assess competences achieved by the candidates based on the 2010 Physics Syllabus for Secondary Education.

The competences tested included the ability of a candidate to: apply Physics knowledge, principles and concepts in daily life; apply scientific methods in solving problems in daily life; apply technological skills in conservation and sustainable use of environment; manage simple technological appliances; and design and implement simple electronic circuits in daily life.

The Physics 1 examination paper consisted of three sections, namely; A, B and C with a total of eleven (11) questions.

The candidates were required to answer a total of 10 questions which weighed 100 marks.

Section A consisted of two (2) questions, one with multiple choice items and the other matching items.

The candidates were required to answer all the questions.

Each item in both multiple choice and matching items weighed one (01) mark making a total of 15 marks.

Question 1 had ten multiple choice items which were constructed from nine (9) topics.

The topics included; Measurement; Archimedes Principle and the Law of Flotation; Structure and Properties of Matter; Light; Motion in a Straight Line, Measurement of Thermal Energy, Vapour and Humidity; Temperature; Thermionic Emission; Elementary Astronomy; Question 2 had five (5) homogeneous items for matching which were set from the topic of Waves.

Section B consisted of six (6) short answer questions set from the topics of Light; Optical Instrument; Pressure; Forces in Equilibrium; Newton`s Laws of Motion; Simple Machines; Thermal Expansion; Measurement of Thermal Energy; Current Electricity; Radioactivity; Geophysics; and Waves.

Each question carried ten (10) marks making a total of 60 marks.

Section C had three (3) short answer questions aimed to assess the candidates’ skills in managing the application of Physics and other technological devices in daily life.

The questions were constructed from four (4) topics. The topics included: Waves,

Electromagnetism, Current electricity and Electronics.

The candidates were required to answer two questions from this section. Each question carried 12.5 marks, making a total of 25 marks.

The practical part of the examination, Physics 2, had three option papers.

The papers were 031/2A Physics 2A, 031/2B Physics 2B, and 031/2C Physics 2C. Each alternative paper consisted of two questions.

In each alternative, the candidates were required to answer all the questions.

Each question carried 25 marks, making a total of 50 marks.

The number of candidates who sat for the Physics examination was 114,472 out of which 78,009 (68.34%) passed the examination and 36,463 (31.66%) failed.

In the Year 2021, the candidates who sat for Physics examination were 116,610 out of which 64,096 (55.33%) passed and 52,514 (44.67%) failed.

In the Year 2020, 120,856 candidates sat for Physics examination of out of which 58,808 (48.87%) passed and 62,048 (51.13%) candidates failed.

This indicates that the candidates` performance in Physics for the Year 2022 has increased by 13.01% compared to the Year 2021.
