In a bid to ensure the integrity of the upcoming West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in Ghana, the Centre for Educational Research and Development (CERD) has trained a team of investigators in Accra to track and prevent examination malpractices in Senior High Schools (SHS).

The investigators, equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge, will monitor the examination process to identify and prevent any form of cheating, impersonation, and other forms of examination malpractice.

This move is part of CERD’s efforts to maintain the quality and validity of educational assessments and ensure that the WASSCE results reflect the true abilities of the students.

The training program covered topics such as:

  • Examination malpractice detection and prevention.
  • Investigation techniques and protocols.
  • Evidence collection and analysis.
  • Test administration and security best practices.

According to Mrs. Antwi Felicity, the Head of Research and Investigation at CERD, said the investigators will work closely with the West Africa Examination Coyncil (WAEC) and other stakeholders to ensure a smooth and secure examination process.

CERD’s initiative is a welcome move in the fight against examination malpractices, and it is expected to contribute significantly to maintaining the integrity of the education system in Ghana.c
