Africa Education Watch as it commences its 2021 WASSCE monitoring exercise has commended the West African Examinations Council for the smooth conduct of the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
In a post sighted by EducationWeb.com.gh, the Education Think said the Examinations Council unlike last year is making good progress in terms of protecting the 2021 examination questions and supervising the examination.
According to the EduWatch, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, the Minister for Education has disclosed the government is working hand in hand with the stakeholders to digitize the questions value chain of WAEC to improve security.
“This is based on our suggestions, proposals and engagements with the Ministry and WAEC on reforms to curb the leakage since last year. With this political commitment, hopefully, things will improve from next year,” it stated.
“A digitized questions security system as explained in our latest Policy Brief plus CCTV cameras at exam centres should be a game-changer,” the Education Policy Research and Advocacy Organization said in the blog post.
Africa Education Watch after WAEC commenced the conduct of the 2021 WASSCE for School on Monday, August 16, 2021, embarked on a WASSCE monitoring exercise to improve accountability in the Education Assessment Sector.
‘Eduwatch is monitoring WASSCE 2021 with the support of OXFAM and will continue collaborating with WAEC to improve accountability in the Education Assessment Sector,” the Executive Director of the Watch, Mr Asare said.
