WAEC Set to Use Electronic Means In Marking Its Theory Questions
The West African Examinations Council, WAEC, has disclosed that it has introduced e-marker in examination process, beginning with the ongoing November/December examination nationwide.
According to the Head of WAEC Nigeria National Office, Mr Olutise Adenipekun, the innovation will help in the assessment of theoretical questions such that marking will no longer be done manually but electronically.
He mentioned that following this development, candidates will no longer be able to take their theory questions home after their examinations, as answer booklets will now be merged with the question papers.
He however, stated that the development does not mean that teachers who were engaged by WAEC in the manual marking will now be disengaged but rather will be used to handle the electronic-marking project.
