FACTORS AFFECTING THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF THE SANDWICH STUDENTS
FACTORS AFFECTING ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE AMONG SANDWICH STUDENTS OF UNIVERSITY OF LAGOS
1.1BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Numerous studies, such as those carried out by Fullana Noe (1995) and Montero Marcos (1990) have sought to understand the factor which account for low students academic performance. Studies seeking to identify what determines academic failure frequently appear as a reaction to condition of change, such as plans for educational reform, or in response to critical situations.
The very concept of academic failure varies in its definition.
Radriguez castellanous (1986) considers academic failure as the situation in which the subject does not attain the expected achievement according to his or her abilities, resulting in an altered personality which affects all other aspect of life.
Similarly, Tapia (2002) notes, that the current educational system perceives that the student fails if he or she does not pass but more appropriate for determining academic failure is whether the student performed below his or her potential.
Grade Point Average (GPA) is a commonly used indicator for academic performance. A minimum GPA should be maintained in order to continue in the degree programmed. In University of Lagos, GPA of 3.0 or higher is considered an indicator for good academic performance.
Many factors could act as barrier to sandwich student attaining and maintaining a high GPA that reflect their overall academic performance during their tenure in university. These factors could be utilized by the authorities in the sandwich programme faculty in developing strategies to improve students learning and improve their overall academic performance.
Some of these factors which affect academic performance amongst sandwich students of university of Lagos are the focus for critical evaluation in this research which are:
1. Instructional resources
(a) Material resources (b) Human resources
2. Test Phobia or anxiety
3. Time management by sandwich students
4. Academic competence
5. Study techniques. 6. Age 7. Marital status
1.2THE PROBLEM OF THE STUDY
There is a persistent poor performance among sandwich students. These academic (under achievements) have been attributed to certain factors such as, material and human resources, test anxiety, time management, academic competence study techniques, marital status and age.
1.3PURPOSE OF STUDY
(1) To explore the factors affecting sandwich students’ academic performance
(2) To determine the differences in the levels of these factors with academic performance.
(3) Early detection and understanding reasons for academic failure may help some students perform better if adequate guidance for improvement is provided efficiently.
(1) What are the factors affecting sandwich students’ academic performance?
(2) To what extent do all these factors affect sandwich students’ performance?
1.5SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
The following people will benefit from the findings of this study:
(b) Teachers; and
(c) School authority
(1) This study will help the students to learn good study techniques which will enhance their performance.
(2) It will help the school authority to attach more importance on the use of material and human resources in upgrading student’s performance.
(3) The school authority will make a better plan for educational reform to be able to suit a crash program.
(4) The teachers will be able to make use of the skill in them to impact knowledge to the students.
(5) The students will be able to manage their study time with other jobs and duties at home.
H 1 There is no significant relationship between age and academic performance.
H 2 There is no significant relationship between marital status and academic performance
1.7SCOPE OF THE STUDY
This study covers all the year 2-4 sandwich students of University of Lagos.
1.8LIMITATION OF STUDY
This study is limited to year 2-4 sandwich students of University of Lagos due to the following reasons.
(a) Time constraint (b) Shortage of fund
