STAKEHOLDERS’ PERCEPTION OF THE USE OF COMPUTER BASED TEST (CBT) IN UNIFIED TERTIARY MATRICULATION EXAMINATION (UTME)

ABSTRACT

The study examined the perception of stakeholders on the use of CBT in UTME in Nsukka Education zone of Enugu state. Six research questions and four hypotheses guided the study. Descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. Six hundred and eighty respondents, consisting of 22 parents (represented by PTA chairpersons and secretaries), 199 teachers and 459 SS3 students were drawn from 11 schools in Nsukka education zone. Simple random sampling was used to draw the schools, the intact classes, and teachers used for the study. All the PTA chairpersons and secretaries from the sampled schools were used for the study. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while 3-way Analysis of Variance was used to test the hypotheses. The results of the study showed that: stakeholders have positive perception of the use of CBT in UTME; gender and location have no influence on stakeholders’ perception of the use of CBT in UTME. The implications of the above findings as well as recommendations were highlighted.
