Managing examination malpractice in Nigerian University system using strategic management policy

AT Alabi, AY Abdulkareem

Abstract


Examination malpractice is as old as examination itself. However, the rate at which examination malpractices occurs in the Nigerian educational system is highly disturbing. The challenge therefore needs prompt   attention. The phenomenon which has both moral and legal dimensions is considered as a hydra-headed problem that has pervaded the entire  educational system in Nigeria. One of its resultant effects is a gradual loss of confidence in the products of educational system and gradual    de-recognition of certificates issued by Nigerian schools. This paper discusses the concept of examination malpractice and highlights a number of offences that are regarded as forms of examination malpractice at the pre-examination, examination and postexamination stages in the   University system. It also highlights the causes and manifestations of examination malpractice among University staff and students. It then  proffers strategic management policies that could curb the menace.
