CHAPTER ONE
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Education serves as a prime instrument in the development of Nigeria but the issue of malpractice has led to the problem of this system. The main purpose of
examination is for certification of achievement, selection for educational and employment opportunities, quality control of the curriculum and its delivery,
monitoring of educational standards and the assessment of school eectiveness.
However, the occurrence of examination malpractices at any level of educational system poses the greatest threat to the certificate thereby, issued.
According to Olusoji et al., (2002) examination malpractice is not a recent phenomenon neither is it peculiar to tertiary level. It has been with us in Nigeria for
a long time and has now almost assumed an epidemic influence. The phenomenon increases in number, scope, and complexity. The first publicity reported
case of examination malpractice in Nigeria occurred in 1914 when there was leakage of question papers in senior Cambridge local examination. Since then
there has been several cases reported but within the recent times occurred in 2009. If we consider also the cases of examination malpractices which occurred
over the years within our school system as well as examinations conducted by bodies such as JAMB, NABTEB, NAEC, WAEC, NECO, NTI, and other professional
bodies, it could be concluded that examination malpractice is a common daily experience.
The elects of examination malpractice are very shocking to educational, economic and political development of any nation. Fibessima, (2002) identified
the elect of examination malpractice as a production of half baked graduates form academic institution, retarded educational growth and development, false sense of value and impression of students capability as well as loss of confidence in candidates who are involved in examination malpractice.
