WAEC not considering CBT

WAEC not considering  CBT

The West African Examination Council, WAEC,  says it is not considering adopting a Computer-Based Test mode for its examinations. Its Head, National Office, Mr Charles Eguridu, made the clarification at an interactive forum with education correspondents on Thursday night in Abuja.

Eguridu said it would amount to ‘intellectual dishonesty’ for him to say that the council would introduce CBT in the next five years or in the near future. According to him, the purpose of education is to prepare people for life, not to pass examinations; hence the need to examine different domains which CBT cannot accommodate.
