WAEC Will not be Adopting Computer Based Test for Now


students-500x250The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has said that it has no intention of adopting the Computer Based Test (CBT) mode fully for now, given the variables involved in conducting its examinations.
WAEC’s Head of National Office (HNO), Dr Charles Eguridu, told newsmen in Lagos that it would not be possible to implement the CBT mode being demanded by some people for now.

According to Eguridu, those making the call are ignorant of the socioeconomic variables that are necessary for the adoption of the CBT for WAEC examinations.

He said: “WAEC examinations involve the use of multiple choice questions, essay and practical, in which case we test various domains of learning.

“And with this, it is not going to be valid to test certain domains of learning with CBT.

“Or can you use CBT in measuring proficiency in certain trade subjects such as carpentry and others? ’’

The official said that the inadequacy of internet connectivity and constant electricity in the country, especially in rural areas, would make such a venture almost impossible.
