Journal of Online and Distance Learning Journal of Online and Distance Learning is an esteemed and a high profile journal accredited for its vital and in-depth information published by CARI. The journal aims to impart and advance knowledge across borders in the most convenient and cost-effective way possible. The journal ideally seeks to bridge the gap between scholars and writers worldwide by making the global world a global village to everyone. On a distance learning course, often the only interaction with a tutor is when assignments are submitted for marking; it’s also rare to interact with fellow students. Thus this journal capitalizes on this aspect by giving students and tutors the freedom to go about their daily businesses while at the same time gaining depths of knowledge at the comfort of their zone. en-US (Journal Admin) (Journal Support) Fri, 02 Sep 2022 22:38:32 +0300 OJS 60 Perceived Determinants of Students’ Examination Corruption in Distance Education <p><strong><em>Purpose:</em></strong> This study examined determinants of students’ examination corruption at the College of Distance Education (CoDE), University of Cape Coast (UCC), Ghana.</p> <p><strong><em>Methodology:</em></strong> The participants of the study included students, Regional Coordinators (RCs), and staff of the Examination Unit at CoDE. A sample of 252 students was selected from an accessible population of 3,095 using a proportionate stratified sampling technique. The questionnaire and semi-structured interviews were used to collect data. Data were analysed with frequency and percentage counts, standard deviations, and presented in tables supported with transcribed views expressed by the RCs and the Head of Exams Unit (HEU).</p> <p><strong><em>Findings:</em></strong> The study's findings revealed that examination malpractice was perceived to be a common illegal behaviour among students. The study also found that deviant students engage in examination malpractices at CoDE due to inadequate preparation for examinations.</p> <p><strong><em>Unique contribution to theory, practice and policy:</em></strong> It was recommended that the management of the college should sensitise all stakeholders, particularly candidates on the sanctions stipulated in their Students’ Handbook for culprits of examination corruption related activities. Also, the college should make study materials available to students on time to fully prepare for all exams.</p> Dr. Felix Senyametor, Emmanuel Dorsah, Prof. Mark Owusu Amponsah, Dr. Alfred Kweku Ampah-Mensah Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Online and Distance Learning Fri, 02 Sep 2022 00:00:00 +0300
