The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has revealed it is positioning itself to deploy more technology in its examination operations.
According to WAEC, it is preparing to use more technology in its operations to maintain the validity of results assessment.
At the Council’s Stakeholders Forum, Mrs. Wendy E. Addy-Lamptey, the Head of the National Office, WAEC, gave a speech to foster understanding between the public and the Council’s operations.
“As we look forward to the years ahead, we are positioning ourselves to deploy technology even more in our processes to ensure that our assessment results remain credible.”
Therefore, Mrs. Addy-Lamptey urged the public to avoid from disseminating misleading material that aims to undermine the validity of its examination and affect the acceptance of results on a global scale.
“As the office prepares to begin the administration of theory papers for the ongoing WASSCE, I wish to urge members of the public to refrain from putting out false information as this erodes the credibility of our examinations and affects the acceptance of results internationally.”
“Our friends from the media, we wish to gently remind you that it’s our collective responsibility to ensure that we do not erode the credibility of our certificates by incorrect reporting.
“We urge you to authenticate information that you come across regarding examinations: our doors at WAEC are always open.”
“Seventy years of Reliable Educational Assessment- the Journey, Challenges, and the Way Forward” was the theme of the discussion that was held as part of the WAEC’s 70th anniversary celebration.
Students from various schools, former and present WAEC staff, members of the Conference of Heads of Assistant Secondary Schools (CHASS), and others attended the event.
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC), founded in 1952, is a board of examination mandated by law to determine the examinations necessary in the public interest in English-speaking West African nations, to conduct examinations, and to issue certificates that are comparable to those of comparable examining authorities internationally.
