WAEC May Use Computer Based Test for 2018 Exams
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) says it will sensitise and train its workforce on key areas of technology deployment in order to improve its operations in 2018.The council’s Head, National Office (HNO), Mr Olu Adenipekun said the council has organised series of retreats for both management staff and the workforce in preparatory to deploy technology in its operations.
“We have worked hard in sensitising the workforce of the council and prepare their minds because it is one thing for one to strive to do something
“But if the people that drives the system are not attuned psychologically, to doing that all such efforts will be fruitless.
“So, we want to prepare our psyche on the need to sharpen our tools in preparation to move over to a 100 per cent technologically driven WAEC and of course we have done that and we are going full blast,’’ he told NAN.
On the possibility of introducing Computer Based Test (CBT) platform for its examination, Adenipekun said that the CBT was not an examination mode that was limited to any particular examination body.
According to him, WAEC also has a section called the Aptitude Test department that can equally use the CBT platform in conducting examination for candidates.
