FACTORS AFFECTING THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF THE SANDWICH STUDENTS


CHAPTER ONE

1.0   INTRODUNCTION

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

5.   Study techniques. 6. Age  7. Marital status
