The Use of Innovative Technologies in the Assessment and Certification Processes in National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB), Nigeria

The role of assessment and certification processes in the education sector can only be ignored at the peril of quality of nations’, educational systems as there is yet no alternative means of ascertaining the quality of human resource development of any nation. Examining bodies are thus saddled with the responsibilities of assessment and certification in the various national educational systems. Hitherto, most examining bodies were using manual approaches for assessment and certification processes. Today, assessment and certification processes are witnessing rapid technological changes. This paper, therefore examines the current state of assessment and certification processes in a Nigerian examining body and also the degree to which the application of technologies has positively affected assessment and certification processes. A three-part validated questionnaire, with reliability coefficient of 0.934 using Crobanch Alpha Coefficient Formula was administered on 1110 respondents randomly selected from  ,among the staff of NABTEB and vocational teachers from selected colleges in all the states of Nigeria. The finding was that the application of technologies has positively enhanced the processes of assessment and certification by NABTEB. It was, therefore, recommended that increased usage of technologies to further enhance the quality of assessment and certification processes in the Nigerian examining system be further encouraged. ,Keywords: Assessment, Certification, Technologies, High-Tech, Examining Bodies,
