Checking Examination Malpractise in Nigeria Schools

Abstract:

The dimensions of examination malpractice in schools are discussed. The paper also discussed the use of moral instruction as a way of managing students’ examination malpractices in schools. Examination malpractice tends to relegate certificates issued at different levels of education. The level of this corruption in society inadvertently originated from primary and secondary schools. It is now affecting our tertiary institutions and thus has become a societal problem. ft is however noted that students are not the only culprits and so there are needs for urgent moral instruction for all educational stakeholders. Among other recommendations, it was suggested that a good foundation of self-discipline and moral character be laid for youths.
