NUT Says Use Of CBT In Lagos Secondary Schools May Fail

Filed in News by on May 18, 2015

The Lagos State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) says the introduction of the Computer Based Test (CBT) in secondary school’s examinations may not achieve the desired result.

The state NUT Chairman, Mr Segun Raheem, who made the assertion, said that the situation might be so because most of the students were not adequately prepared for CBT.

He said the students were not prepared due to the non-availability of Information Communication Technology (ICT) facilities and human resources.

Raheem noted that computer science which, hitherto, was an optional subject and suddenly made a compulsory subject would leave some students unprepared for CBT.

The unionist noted that most of the secondary schools in the state had a desktop or a laptop which they used mostly for administrative work.

He, however, said that only few schools had an ICT laboratory that was fully equipped with internet facilities. (NAN)
