As part of efforts to address menace of examination malpractice, educators have been urged to modify their methods of teaching and assessment. This formed part of the recommendations at the end of the 37th conference of the Association for Educational Assessment in Africa (AEAA), which held recently in Abuja and hosted by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Nigeria.

Participants resolved that both educators and assessment experts have roles to play in ensuring that meaningful learning takes place to stem the tide of examination malpractice.

They also lamented the lack of infrastructure and other challenges of computer-based assessment (CBA) in Africa. Subsequently, the meeting urged examination bodies to consider Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) based solutions in the sector to improve on what they do.

The communique stated that they considered “exploring, developing, adapting and or adopting various ICTs based solutions to promote meaningful teaching and learning, to enhance their integrity, efficiency and effectiveness.”

The role of research findings on innovations in assessment and education was also emphasised. Thus, education and assessment institutions “must consider establishing well-resourced research units that will use appropriate methodologies, suitable statistical and qualitative analysis and provide information to support innovations.”
