The Persistence of Examination Misconduct in Nigerian Higher Education Systems: The Connection with the Degradation of the Family and Education Institutions

The continuance of test misconduct in Nigerian higher education systems was explored in this essay, as well as the dysfunctionality of families and educational institutions. The methodology used in the study was information gathered from a secondary source and content analysis. The longevity of examination misconduct has been connected to various issues, including bad parenting, a lack of good upbringing in the home, and corruption in educational institutions, according to R. K. Merton’s idea of dysfunctionality. In its final observations, the report suggested that if families and educational institutions could actively execute their sociological responsibilities, the pace at which examination dishonesty is rising in tertiary institutions might be substantially reduced.
