RELATIVE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENTS IN COMPUTER SCIENCE AND INTEGRATED SCIENCE FROM 2004 – 2008


ABSTRACT

          This study was on “Relative Academic performance of Junior Secondary School Students in Computer Science and Integrated Science from 2004 – 2008 (A case study of Enugu North Local Government Area of Enugu State)

Three (3) research questions were answered and the population of this study is two hundred (200), which was made up of computer and integrated science classroom teachers, principals, head teachers, assistance head teachers, and students. Data were presented in table and were analyzed using the mean. The sampling technique used for this study is the simple random sampling and total sample size in sixty. Form the selected junior secondary schools in Enugu State; it was found out by the researchers that relative significances differences exist between the academic performances of students in junior secondary school, within the years under review. Besides, the problem of domain specification, underutilization of leaning resources and lack of experience among teachers affect students performance in computer and integrated science subjects at the junior secondary school level. It was concluded that among other things that teachers need to take assessment from the students to know or ascertain the extent and depth knowledge acquired after a course of study or programme of teaching.

The researchers recommended among others that many participative methods should be employed by the teachers in the teaching and learning of computer and integrated science delivery and excellent academic performance of students.

 CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

          The academic performance in junior secondary schools in the country has been of great concern to parents, scholars, educators and the government at large. A number of seminars, conferences, symposia and workshop have been organized to look into the academic performance in sciences in the junior secondary as a take off into determining the relative academic performance of students in science subject.

Some people are of the opinion that students performance in science subjects is on the decline. Conforming this view, Esezobar (1986) lament, only about No percent of Nigerian candidates who sat for the West Africa School Certificate Examination in the pervious years passed science subjects with credits. The impression from the forgoing citation is that the percentage of failure in science subject is on the increase. The fact that the problems of education has reached on alarming stage should not be over emphasized. There is the belief that the standard of education has fallen.

          Many Nigerians and Newspaper columnist have written and aired there view on this on this issue. Akinpelu (1984) while working on the standard/quality in Nigeria education assets that the standard of Nigerian education has fallen. In recent years, it is a conventional claim which nobody  in the right mind dares dispute.

          In view of this, the researches are motivated to investigate the relative academic performance of the junior secondary in two science subjects (integrated Science and computer science) from the year 2004 to 2008 in Enugu North Local Government Area.

These two science subject are selected to  be the tae off into determining the relative academic performance of  junior secondary students in science subjects.

This is because these two science subject occupy a curriculum. They represent the foundation stone for subsequent instruction in science in later life, for pupils who may wish to pursue a science related career in life and an introduction to science for others who may wish to pursue either humanities based on vocational inclined studies.

Integrated Science for instance is the study of all the branches of science which includes Biology, Chemistry and Physics under one Umbrella in order to avoid repetition of subject  matter from various sciences. It is the root of all the science subject. Apan (1983) looking at integrated science said that “it is a natural response to the shifting views of science that the environment and all its natural phenomena can best be understand in the context  of a unified scientific approach”. Also Khabele, (1975 said that ‘it is only an integrated approach in the study of science at early stage that will prepare a scientist for a proper tae off into the existing world of science later in his school career”.

STATEMENT OF THE STUDY

The increase decline of students performance in science subjects is the concern of all. The ultimate aim of education is to provide knowledge of the world. In an effort to do this, knowledge has been divided into a system of studies called subjects with science as one of the elements of the system.

Integrated science therefore, attempts a unified view of the world thus some of these problems arose as a result of giving birth to integrated sciene and computer science in junior secondary school curriculum of our school system.

Some of these problems are:-

The academic performance of the junior secondary school on integrated science and computer science.

The competence of teachers teaching integrated science and computer science in our schools.

The interest of students in learning both subjects (integrated and computer science).

The availabilities of materials for teaching integrated science and computer science.

The availability of integrated and computer science laboratories.

Availability of a stand by generator income of proven failure.

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

          the major purpose of this study is to determine the relative academic performance of junior secondary students in integrated science and computer science from 2004 – 2008 in Enugu North Local Government Area.

Determine  whether the students academic performance in  integrated science computer science from 2004 – 2008 is:-

Excellent

Very good

Good

Fair

Poor

If excellent , what can be done to maintain the excellent level?

If poor, what can  be done to revive the ugly condition?

factors that contributed to the excellent or poor performance of the students in integrated science and computer science from 2004 – 2008.

determining what can be done to retrieve academic excellent in integrated and computer science among junior secondary student.

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

          The society at large, government, policy makers, schools, teachers, guidance counselors, parents, students, educators will benefit from this research.

This study will help them to understand and appreciate relative academic performance of the junior secondary school in integrated science and computer science from 2004 – 2008. The researchers believed that the knowledge which would be uncovered in the study would assist integrated and computer science teachers and student teachers in the formulation of methods, programmes designed to maintain or retrieve excellent academic performance among junior secondary school students in both integrated and computer science. It will equally serve as an effective tool for reference purpose  to both students, scholars of education, teachers as well as the general pupils.

SCOPE OF THE STUDY

          The scope of this study is limited to determine the relative academic performance of the junior secondary school students in integrated and computer science from 2004 – 2008 in Enugu North Local Government Area   

RESEARCH QUESTIONS

what are the major roles of teachers in the teaching and learning of computer and integrated science in schools?

What are the problems conpronting teachers in the teaching and learning of computer and Integrated science subjects in junior secondary school?

What are the workable strategies for improving teachers and learners performances in the teraching and learning of computer and Integrated science subjects in school?

The reason why many technicians earns more than some university graduates is because the technicians acquire more practical skills than the theories, unlike the graduates who were fed with theoretical experiences while in the universities. It can take you to places you do not expect you will find yourself. Skill acquisition is the ability to be trained on a particular task or function and become expert in it. It is really u
