Examination Malpractice in WASSCE for School Certificates: A Comprehensive Analysis of the 2019 Statistics in Nigeria


Exam malpractices can jeopardize the validity and dependability of test outcomes, which is a serious danger to the integrity of educational assessments. This analysis sheds light on the prevalence, forms, and consequences of malpractices with a particular focus on the 2019 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for school candidates in Nigeria. Looking critically at the numbers of different malpractices exposes a variety of wrongdoings, with collusion showing up as a major problem. The study emphasizes how critical and urgent to solve these issues in order to preserve the legitimacy of the educational system. To help practitioners and policymakers protect the integrity of academic evaluations, preventative and intervention strategies are presented.
