    The study investigated sexual dysfunction, socio-cultural beliefs and communication styles as
    predictors of marital satisfaction among married people in Nigeria. The research design used was
    the descriptive research of the survey type. The population consisted of all married people in the
    three major ethnic groups in Nigeria (Igbo, Hausa/Fulani and Yoruba).
    The sample for the study comprised 1,200 married people whose ages ranged from 18 years and
    above selected through multi-stage sampling technique. The instrument used for the study was a
    questionnaire titled “Marital Relations Questionnaire (MRQ) “. The instrument's face and
    content validities were ensured while the construct validity yielded a co-efficient of 0.73 Testretest
    method of reliability was adopted with a co-efficient of 0.80 at 0.05 significant level. One
    research hypothesis was postulated for the study and tested using multiple regression analysis at
    0.05 significant level. The findings of the study showed that socio-cultural beliefs of married people
    in Nigeria were the single best predictor of marital satisfaction among married people in Nigeria
    with a beta weight of 0.057 (57%). Based on this findings, It was recommended that counsellors
    should design effective programmes that would enable married people in Nigeria to have a change
    in their negative perspective towards marriage. Parents should encourage their children to marry
    from any part of Nigeria when every condition is met. In addition, would be couple should involve
    their parents in the selection of their life partners.

    Educational measurement serves as a basis for the quantitative description of learners' behaviours
    to inform decisions on the learners. Measurements in psychological and behavioural sciences are
    not devoid of errors and the sources of the errors are multifarious. Error is the difference between
    the observed score of a learner and his true score. The smaller the error of measurement, the more
    the observed score tends towards the true score. Measurement error can lead to wrong decision and
    wrong decision has great consequences on the future of learners and the society at large This paper
    examined the meaning of test, measurement and evaluation; qualities of a good test; concept of
    validity; significance of test validity; concept of reliability; significance of test reliability;
    relationship between reliability and validity, error of measurement; sources of error of
    measurement; standard error of measurement; ways of reducing measurement error; and
    implications of standard error of measurement to teachers' decisions on students' academic
    achievement. In view of the consequential effect of measurement error on teachers' decisions,
    teachers should strive daily to minimize the measurement error. It was recommended among others
    that: (i). Knowledge of the qualities of good tests and their derivations must be made essential for
    classroom teachers. (ii). Multiple measures of students' performance should be adopted by
    classroom teachers to take decisions on students' actual performance since average of multiple
    measures would yield the true ability of the learner than the observed score that is being
    contaminated with errors.

    Liberation teaching method in enhancing the academic wellbeing of pupils in early chilhood education

    Corresponding Author
  • ABSTRACT

    Article has no reference added yet.

    The academic wellbeing of children shows that the teacher is concerned about all the categories of
    children in the class. The fast learners, the slow learners, the challenged pupils and so on. This
    implies that no matter the limitations, every pupils needs to be taken care of academically. Early
    childhood education being the foundational education requires adequate preparation physically,
    academically and psychologically. In imparting knowledge in early childhood, the teacher needs to
    be conscious of many factors and variables. Liberation teaching simply means the method of
    teaching that helps the teacher not to give up upon any child. To give up on any child can lead to
    stigmatisation and a stigma can hinder an individual from full participation in the class which can
    greatly diminish the self-esteem of the child. Liberation teaching is necessary for the creation of the
    encouraging classroom. This implies that the encouraging classroom environment is extended to
    every child. The method also enables the teacher to accept every child in the class as a person of
    worth. The fact is that children in the classroom are from different cultural backgrounds with
    different physical characteristics, behavioural styles, social attributes, learning capabilities,
    physical disabilities, level of attention span, level of self–esteem and self –concept. Any of these
    could impede or enhance the academic well-being of pupils in early childhood education. The
    liberation teaching method is developmentally appropriate, guidance oriented, child-centred, and
    culturally responsive. This paper makes use of liberation teaching method based on social
    psychology of Goffman and Maslow theories. The paper also discusses the factors responsible for
    stigmatization.

  • ABSTRACT

    Article has no reference added yet.

    Vocational guidance has been identified as a veritable tool for improving students' academic
    performance and career development. However, research has shown that there is a decline in
    guidance service and support for vocational guidance service across the government Technical
    Colleges in Ondo State. Hence this study examined the effects of vocational guidance on the career
    choice of technical college students in Ondo State, Nigeria. Descriptive research design of the
    survey type was adopted for the study. Primary data were collected through a well-structured,
    validated and reliable questionnaire. The population of the study comprised all the students in the
    five Government Technical Colleges in Ondo State. Multi- Stage sampling procedure was used to
    select 150 respondents for the study. The data collected were analyzed through the use of descriptive
    and inferential statistics. Findings showed that the respondents highly agreed that vocational
    guidance forum, talk, or seminar is always interesting (x =3.16) while they moderately disagreed
    that students put up non-chalant attitude during guidance classes (x =1.94); grand mean 2.12. It
    was also revealed that vocational guidance service in the study area is of moderate level with a
    grand mean of 1.88. Inadequate motivation and insufficient guidance facilities were identified as
    constraints to effective vocational guidance in the study area. Further findings showed that
    vocational guidance helps students make career choices that are in line with their interests, aptitude
    and abilities (x =3.30).Therefore, the study concluded that vocational guidance is highly relevant in
    Government Technical Colleges, thus, all hands must be on deck to ensure that vocational guidance
    in Technical Colleges in Ondo State is improved so as to enhance the performance of Technical
    College leavers and proper career choice.

    Corresponding Author
  • ABSTRACT

    Article has no reference added yet.

    Despite the importance of Mathematics to personal and professional endeavours of individual,
    experiences of learners, their environment and anxiety towards mathematics may have affected
    their attitude towards learning business mathematics. Thus, this study appraises previous
    experiences, learning environment and anxiety as predictors of attitude towards learning Business
    Mathematics among students in colleges of education in Lagos State. A survey research design was
    adopted. The population of the study comprised students who had taken Business Mathematics in
    the three public institutions in Lagos State with 311 respondents selected through proportionate
    sampling as sample. Four hypotheseswere tested at 0.05 level of significance. Business
    Mathematics Attitudinal Questionnaire (BMAQ) was used to collect relevant data and the data
    collected were analyzed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient and Multiple
    Regression Analysis. The study revealed that previous experience and learning environment had
    positive relationships with attitude towards Business Mathematics while anxiety related negatively
    with attitude towards Business Mathematics. Besides, previous experience and anxiety were
    observed to jointly predict learners' attitude towards Business Mathematics while learning
    environment was observed to be insignificant. It was recommended that adequate measures while
    teaching Mathematics at pre-tertiary institutions should be taken to avoid negative experience and
    anxiety among students.

  • ABSTRACT

    Article has no reference added yet.

    The study assessed capacity building facilities as predictors of teachers' productivity in secondary
    schools in Ondo State. Teachers' productivity has been a great concern to the stakeholders in
    education in recent time. Teachers seem not to be adequately motivated and trained in comparison
    with their counterparts in other professions.
    The descriptive research design was used for the study. The sample for the study was 200 teachers
    selected from 30 public secondary schools in Ondo State. Simple random and purposive sampling
    techniques were used to choose the sample from the population. A self-designed questionnaire
    tagged“(ACBFTPQ)” was designed and used to elicit information from the respondents. The data
    collected were analyzed through the use of descriptive and inferential statistics.
    Findings revealed that there were significant relationships between the independent variable
    (capacity building facilities) and the dependent variable (teachers' productivity).
    It was concluded that capacity building facilities predicted teachers' productivity in public
    secondary schools in Ondo State. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that there
    should be a joint and individual contribution of the government, principals and teachers to the
    capacity building of teachers in secondary schools in Ondo State.

    The purpose of this study was to assess Science Education students' perception on the use of
    Computer-Based Test (CBT) mode of examinations in Prince Abubakar Audu, University, Anyigba,
    Nigeria. Two research questions and a null hypothesis guided the study. A case study research
    design was adopted in this study. The population of the study comprised of 3,000 students from 100
    and 200 levels of Science Education Department. Proportionate stratified random sampling
    technique was used to select 1,500 students from the two levels in the institution. The instrument for
    data collection was a 20-item structured questionnaire titled Science Education student's
    perception on the use of CBT mode of examinations in Price Abubakar Audu University, Anyigba.
    The questionnaire was structured on a 4-point rating scale and was face validated by three experts.
    Cronbach's Alpha method was used to determine the reliability of the instrument at 0.80 which is
    high and reliable for the study. Research question one and two were analyzed using Mean and
    standard deviation. While the null hypothesis was tested using t–test statistics at 0.05 level of
    significance. The result of the study showed that, Science Education students' perception on the use
    of CBT mode of examination had higher mean ratings. Again, the result shows no significant gender
    difference on their perception on the CBT modes of examinations in the University. Based on the
    findings, it was recommended, among others, that Students should be trained on how to use
    computer based examinations during the process of studying general studies (GST) and
    entrepreneur development studies (EDS) courses in the university to boost their performance, since
    they will be assessed using CBT mode of examination.

  • ABSTRACT

    Article has no reference added yet.

    This study was designed to determine the challenges facing the utilization of Information
    Communication Technology (ICT) facilities in the technical colleges in Enugu Education zone. A
    descriptive survey research design was used for the study. One research question was raised for the
    study and one null hypothesis tested at 0.05 level of significance was formulated to guide the study.
    and tested using the t-test statistical tool. A structured question naireon Challenges Facing
    Utilization of ICT Facilities in Technical Colleges (CFUICTFTC) was used to gather opinions and
    obtain data from211 year two students and 36 teachers from the four technical colleges in Enugu
    Education zone. Three experts carried out the face validation of the instrument. The overall
    reliability coefficient applying the Spearman's rank order correlation co-efficient formula yielded
    0.93. A simple random sampling technique was used to select the sample size of the students. The
    analysis showed that the mean scores of the teachers in respect of the challenges facing utilization of
    the ICT facilities in the technical colleges are of low extent across the board. Whereas the students'
    mean scores showed high extent in respect of the challenges facing the utilization of the available
    ICT facilities. There was a significant difference in the mean scores of teachers and the students. The
    t-calculated value of 16.73 is greater than t-table value of 1.64 at P<0.05 level of significance.
    Therefore significant difference existed in the mean scores of teachers and students in respect of the
    challenges facing the utilization of ICT facilities in the technical colleges studied. Lack of computer
    literate teachers in technical colleges as well as the epileptic power supply without backup
    electricity generating sets constituted major challenges in the utilization of ICT facilities in the
    technical colleges in Enugu Education zone.

    college of education in Ondo State, Nigeria. The study adopted the non-experimental research
    design involving descriptive survey type of research. The study used a sample of 300 students
    selected through the use of stratified and simple random sampling techniques from a federal college
    of education in Ondo State. The instrument titled peer pressure influence and cohabitation
    questionnaire was used for the data collection. The data collected were analysed through frequency
    count, percentage and Pearson Product Moment Correlation. The results showed that majority of
    the students perceived peer pressure as influential to cohabitational behaviour among the students.
    The results further indicated that significant relationship existed between students perceptions of
    peer pressure influence and cohabitation (r = 0.362; r-tab = 0.195). Based on the findings of the
    study, it was concluded that college of education students did not perceived cohabitation among
    unmarried college of education students as abnormal behaviour to the society rather they are fully
    in support of cohabitation among unmarried students, hence, it was recommended that
    cohabitation among unmarried college of education students must be controlled through
    legislation to prevent ridicule to the institution of marriage.

  • ABSTRACT

    Article has no reference added yet.

    To learn, “normal” and students with special needs need to feel safe and supported. A healthy, safe
    and supportive learning environment enables students and those with special needs to learn in
    powerful ways. The study examined school safety and students' academic performance in public
    secondary schools for students with special needs in Oyo State. The study employed descriptive
    research design of survey type. Purposive sampling technique was used to select the 5 Principals,
    53 teachers with bias in special education and all the 228 students with special needs in the five
    sampled public secondary schools which cater for the education of students with special needs in
    Oyo State. A researcher designed questionnaire tagged: “School Safety and Students' Academic
    Performance Questionnaire (SSSAPQ) was used. The questionnaire was validated using face and
    content validity method. Test re-test reliability technique was employed. This yielded reliability coefficient
    of 0.70. Frequency count, percentage and mean score were used in answering the two
    research questions while Pearson product-moment correlation statistics was used to test the only
    hypothesis. The findings revealed that emotional and physical safety measures were insufficiently
    provided in the sampled schools. It was recommended among others that government and other
    stakeholders should collaborate in providing these safety measures in the sampled schools since
    they are critical to the safety and education of students with special needs.

    provide avenue for participation in traditional activities, festivals and related issues that promote
    their status in societies; Sponsor, Promote and conduct campaigns that will change people's
    mentality towards people with disability among others.

  • ABSTRACT

    Article has no reference added yet.

    Teachers-students classroom interaction could best describe cordial academic relationships and as
    such, are fundamental to the length at which students perform academically. English language on
    the other hand is a core subject in every level of education; investigating classroom teaching
    through teacher-students interaction cannot be underestimated. There is no gain saying that
    researchers have done well to investigate interactions pattern between teachers and students in
    classroom work, however, not much have been investigated about English language especially in
    the senior secondary schools. This study therefore was conducted using a multi stage sampling
    technique to select twenty five (25) English teachers and two hundred and fifty (250) students from
    the four (4) Local Governments in Oyo Town, Oyo State, Nigeria. The instruments used for the
    research consisted of two instruments, namely; English Language Performance Test with
    coefficient of kr 0 = 0.72. and Flanders Interaction Analysis Categories with coefficient of 0.79 and 2
    Data collected were analyzed using T-test, Pearson Product Moment Correlation and Analysis of
    Covariance (ANOVA). Findings showed that there is a significant relationship between teachersstudents
    classroom interaction and academic performance of students in English Language which
    is negative (r=721; p<0.01). Among others, it was recommended that in-service teaching courses
    should be organized by government agencies responsible for the smooth running of education such
    as Ministry of Education in order to allow teachers in Nigeria schools to acquire skills that are
    capable of fostering interaction in the classroom.
