Accra, Ghana: In a significant move to ensure the integrity of the upcoming West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in Ghana, the Centre for Educational Research and Development (CERD) has trained a dedicated team of investigators to monitor and prevent examination malpractices in Senior High Schools (SHS).

The newly trained investigators, equipped with essential skills and knowledge, will oversee the examination process to detect and prevent cheating, impersonation, and other forms of malpractice. This initiative is part of CERD’s broader efforts to maintain the quality and validity of educational assessments, ensuring that WASSCE results accurately reflect students’ true abilities.

The comprehensive training program included modules on:

  • Detection and prevention of examination malpractice
  • Investigation techniques and protocols
  • Evidence collection and analysis
  • Best practices for test administration and security

Mrs. Antwi Felicity, Head of Research and Investigation at CERD, stated that the investigators would collaborate closely with the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and other stakeholders to ensure a smooth and secure examination process.

CERD’s initiative is widely seen as a positive step in the fight against examination malpractices and is expected to significantly contribute to upholding the integrity of Ghana’s education system.
