The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) conducts the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in Anglophone West Africa. The steady increase in candidature in WASSCE has led to challenges in assessment for WAEC. Therefore, WAEC employs ICT in the conduct of WASSCE to meet up with these challenges for better service delivery. The ICT activities include on-line registration of candidates, on-line verification of results, scanning of objective answer scripts, production of mark and attendance sheets etc. pursuant to conducting a credible and reliable examination, WAEC Nigeria embarked on the e-marking of candidates’, scripts in some papers at WASSCE. This study therefore, sought the opinions of examiners who were involved in the e-marking of candidates’, scripts at WASSCE in Nigeria. Data generated was analysed qualitatively and quantitatively. The findings were discussed and solutions were proffered to the challenges encountered in thee-marking of candidates’, scripts by WAEC Nigeria.Keywords : e-marking, examiners, The West African Examinations Council, perception
