The Role Of Education Stakeholders In Tackling Examination Malpractice In Nigeria

An examination is a form of assessing the learners' understanding, knowledge, ability and general comprehension of what they have been taught. This gives the teachers feedback on their instructional processes.

Evidence has shown the increasing incidence of examination malpractice by students and learners at all levels, which comflict with the aim of education.

The various forms of examination malpractice, such as impersonation, smuggling of foreign materials into the examination hall, external assistance and others in a bid to help students pass their examinations, lead to poor quality learners who can't defend the certificates obtained.

Last year, the authority of the West African Examinations Council ( WAEC) penalised some schools across the nation because of their involvement in examination in their schools.

There was a report that six teachers in the employ of Oyo State government were demoted for their alleged involvement in examination malpractice last week.

According to the letter, the teachers were involved in examination malpractices during the 2022 Senior Secondary Certificate Examination, SSCE, conducted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).

Now that the 2023 WAEC has commenced, all stakeholders, such as teachers, parents and even students, must show a high level of commitment and honesty.

Parents should also periodically check the activities of their children and wards, ensure proper moral training, and support for offenders.

The government must put in place a policy to deter such acts and punish offenders in the country.
