WAEC Decide to Tackle Examination Malpractice With Their New Device

This is to inform the general public that the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), has developed a new device called “CredenceOne” to check-mate the activities of perpetrators of examination malpractice and impersonation.

The Head of National Office of WAEC, Mr. Isaac Adenipekun, who announced the new technology on Thursday, said the council deployed the device for the first time during the November/December 2015 WASSCE.

Mr. Adenipekun said: “It is the intersection of mobile communications and biometric technology. It is a mobile biometric identification and verification system, built on the Android Operating System. Using “CredenceOne” is as simple as using a mobile phone. It is used to initiate and complete the biometric verification of candidates’ fingerprints.

“The device is programmed to compare the scanned fingerprint template with the initial templates captured during registration and display the candidate’s details to check impersonation. The system also takes candidates’ attendance and automatically sends the records online to the remote central server for reporting.

“With this innovation, we can boldly say that WAEC, Nigeria now has its biometric fingerprint identification and verification system on a mobile device”, he said.

The WAEC boss added that the deployment of the new technology is part of the efforts of the Council to continue to protect the integrity of its examinations.
