Towards the Utilisation of Technologies in Curbing Examination Misconduct in a Nigerian University IJTSRD
Examination misconduct has consistently remained the bane of Nigeria’s educational system. This cuts across all the educational sectors, including the tertiary. This paper examined the concept of educational misconduct, and the various types that were listed in two state-owned Universities in Northern Nigerian Students’ Handbook. It goes further to highlight those forms of examination misconducts that resulted from the development of technologies. Majority of current examination misconduct cases were those that involves the usage of technologies, most especially, the mobile phones. The paper further examined various measures that the University has put in place to curb examination misconduct. However, these measures have yielded little or no positive result. This paper therefore highlighted various technologies that can be used to minimise or possibly eradicate examination misconduct issues. The challenges associated with the integration were discussed. The prospects were also enumerated. The paper further highlighted how some of these technologies could be incorporated and effectively used to curb examination misconducts in the University. Suggestions were made on how to achieve these. This paper concluded by hypothesising that if technologies are adopted to curb examination misconducts, the quality and standard of education would be enhanced.
