The Candidates’ Item Response Analysis (CIRA) Report in Chemistry subject on the Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (CSEE) 2022 has been prepared to provide feedback to teachers, candidates, parents, policy makers and the public in general about the performance of the candidates and the challenges they experienced in attempting the examination.

The Certificate of Secondary Education Examination is a four-year summative evaluation, which among other things, shows the effectiveness of the education system in general and the education delivery system in particular.

Essentially, candidates’ responses to the examination questions is a strong indicator of what the education system was able or unable to offer to the candidates in their four years of secondary education.

The analysis presented in this report provides some insights on the performance of the candidates in Chemistry subject.

The analysis indicates that the candidates who scored high marks had adequate knowledge of the tested concepts in Chemistry, and managed to apply mathematical skills in responding to some questions.

However, those who scored low marks lacked adequate knowledge about the subject matter and failed to identify the demands of most of the questions.

In addition, the candidates with low scores had insufficient mathematical skills and English language proficiency.

The feedback provided in this report will enable education administrators, school managers, teachers and candidates to identify proper measures to be taken to improve candidates’ performance in future examinations administered by the Council.

The National Examinations Council of Tanzania appreciates the valuable contribution of all individuals who enhanced the preparation of this report in various capacities
