Abstract

This study is being conducted to "investigate the views and opinions of teachers about the strategies to mitigate the malpractices in the secondary school certificate examination system in the boards of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa." The target population was all the teachers of secondary schools in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a province of Pakistan. The data was collected through questionnaires, and the following five hypotheses were tested: (1) The installation of CCTV cameras in examination halls will minimize malpractices during examinations. (2) The appointment of good-character, dutiful, and honest teachers as exam supervisors will minimize the chances of malpractice during examinations. (3) The media can play a positive role in reducing examination malpractices. (4) Good and effective teaching in schools will minimize the chances of malpractices in examinations. (5) Strict punishment for individuals involved in malpractices will reduce the occurrences of examination malpractices. The data was tabled, analyzed, and a conclusion drawn. All the hypotheses were proven true and accepted.
