Egbo, Anthonia Chinonyelum
World Journal of Education, v5 n3 p91-98 2015
This study investigated the Counselling strategies for curbing "Examination Malpractices" in Secondary Schools in Enugu State Nigeria. The researcher used three research questions. The Design used was a descriptive survey design. Sample consisted of 335 respondents comprising principals (N = 19), PTA secretaries (N = 19), teachers (N = 276) and Counsellors (N = 21) selected through stratified random sampling. A researcher-developed questionnaire containing 27 items was validated by experts, subjected to reliability tests using Cronbach Alpha coefficient method to collect the data. Data was analyzed using mean ratings which revealed that out of the 27 proposed strategies investigated, the respondents agreed that 24 personal/social, educational and teachers' forum strategies will be useful in counselling students against examination malpractice in secondary schools in Enugu State. This means that unless several social, educational and teacher sensitization strategies are vigorously implemented, School counselling might not contribute much in the fight against Examination malpractice as one and evil practice in Secondary Education Sector. Recommendations included that Educational Management bodies, principals and PTA should sponsor and mount campaigns through the use of posters, bulletin boards, seminars and jingles to change student's attitude towards examination malpractices.
