Teachers’ Awareness, Usage and Perceived Usefulness of West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) Chief Examiners’ Reports

This study assessed teachers’ awareness, usage and perceived usefulness of WASSCE Chief Examiners’ Reports in senior secondary schools in Nigeria. Three (3) research questions and three (3) null hypotheses were formulated based on the variables of the study; awareness of their existence, their usage and perceived usefulness in terms of gender, school type and years of teaching experience. The survey design was adopted, and a well-structured questionnaire used for data collection. This study made use of multi-stage sampling technique in selecting respondents from both private and public secondary schools. The first stage involved selecting two states from each of the six geo-political zones in Nigeria using simple random sampling technique. The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) was purposively selected to ensure the inclusion of the FCT. Fifteen (15) secondary schools were selected from each state and maximum of 30 teachers were selected from each. The data obtained were duly coded and analysed using both descriptive statistics and Chi-square. The result indicated, among others, that majority of the teachers (80%) and (77%) were aware of the existence of WASSCE Chief Examiners’ Reports and perceived them as useful respectively, but that only less than (9%) used the documents very often. Therefore, it was recommended among others that the Council should indulge in regular sensitisation programmes to enlighten the teachers on the availability of and need to make frequent use of the WASSCE Chief Examiners’ Reports. Also, schools and subject associations should organise regular workshops on the use of WASSCE Chief Examiners’ Reports using experienced teachers as resource persons.
