WAEC Should Prevent Exam Malpractice Instead Of Punishing Culprits – Kofi Asare

The Executive Director of Africa Education Watch has criticised the West African Examination Council’s (WAEC) cancellation of papers due to examination malpractice.

According to Kofi Asare, the Exam Council should be proactive in preventing examination malpractice rather than punishing students who are involved.

“It will be great to see WAEC putting more effort to prevent malpractice than punishing those involved,” he said.

He made this known in an interview on JoyNews’ The Pulse on Thursday.

Mr Asare’s comment follows WAEC’s cancellation of a number of candidates’ papers as a result of exam malpractice in this year’s WASSCE examination.

According to him, “looking at the statement released by WAEC, we realised that there is an increase of about 187 percent in the number of subjects that were cancelled compared to last year. Which means it has moved from about 1,300 last year to about 3,600.”

He noted that per the data, the magnitude of examination malpractice keeps increasing, therefore WAEC should be more proactive in dealing with such incidents when they arise.

Mr Asare explained that the best way to prevent examination malpractice is to ensure it does not happen rather than finding solutions to it when it occurs.

He noted that Ghana has a long way to go when it comes to WASSCE examination even though there is a better performance this year.

Meanwhile, the West African Examination Council has released provisional results for 2022 WASSCE candidates.

In a statement on Thursday, WAEC said the results relate to only Ghanaian students who took part in the exams this year.

256 Teachers Sue GES Over Promotional Exams Failure

256 Teachers Sue GES Over Promotional Exams Failure

A teacher in a secondary school explain by means of graphics the fundamental of economics.

Some 256 teachers have sued the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Attorney General over their mass failure in the December 2021 promotional examinations.

The teachers, who are on the Assistant Director Grade II position, sat for the Assistant Director Grade I promotion examination at the Ada Training College Centre.

Mr James Enu, counsel for the applicants (teachers), told the Ghana News Agency that none of the 256 teachers, who wrote the exams at that centre passed, adding that, such an occurrence was bizarre.

Mr Enu said even though the applicants petitioned the GES to investigate the issue, they were informed that nothing untoward was found in the circumstances leading to their failure.

He said the applicants, however, believed that the GES did not conduct any investigations into the issue, therefore, he wrote on behalf of his clients to the Service to request for their scripts and scores, but no response was received to that effect.

He added that it was also worrying that the pass mark for the exams was not disclosed to the candidates before they sat for it but rather, they were informed after the examination that they had all failed the paper.

He said it was based on these that the applicants took legal action against the GES seeking the court to set aside the results of the exam and order GES to furnish the applicants with their exams scores and scripts, as well as put an injunction on the defendant to prevent them from organizing other exams until the determination of the case.

Mr Oheneba Akyea Mensah, representatives of the teachers, said the issue had affected them psychologically, emotionally, and physically making it difficult for them to properly discharge their duties as teachers.

Mr Mensah said during the exams some of the applicants did not have index numbers and were asked to use their staff numbers, adding that one was also absent while another got involved in an accident but all of them were declared as failed.

He said they wanted to set a precedence as this was not the first time such incidents have occurred.
