Summary, Conclusion and Recommendations 31
The purpose of this study a comparative analysis of the relationship between student performances in NECO and WAEC Examinations in Secondary Schools in Ekiti State. Two null hypotheses were posited and tested at 0.05 level of significance using the t-test method. Students performance in both public and private school were used and it was a randomized sample of one hundred and fifty students drawn from a population of three thousand, five hundred and thirty nine students from six secondary schools in the study area. The analysis of the scores reveals that, there are significant differences in the academic performance of private and public secondary schools. This study has exposed a highly reliable body of information about the performance of male and female students, private and public secondary schools and how they are totally independent of themselves. Students and schools administrators have been exposed to factors that need to be taken into consideration in teaching and learning biology. The recommendation from this research is that teachers, governments and schools administrators should make efforts for the provision of students needs in terms of what will make teaching and learning effective so as to bring about good academic performance in both private and public schools.
Background to the Study
This is the age of science that has science in its curriculum and this is generally neglected by students seeking admission not only in Ekiti State but also all over the country or nation. The importance of social science in the life of developing Nations like Nigeria cannot be overemphasized.
Adesoji (2002), in a research study conducted in a randomly selected sample of secondary schools in the western states of Nigeria came to the conclusion that “It is the general feeling that students of today who will occupy the position of leadership in future must have this background and literacy of modern programmers in social science”.
Meanwhile Economics is been recognized out of the school certificate level subjects.
Teachers are forced to be reckon with in the effective use of those materials and equipments since “its” foundation of science and technology is laid by them through this teaching of the various social sciences like Geography, Economics, sociology, Anthropology etc.
The only way for the teachers to be sure that students assimilates what is being taught is through evaluation. Relating to evaluation, too much importance is as a result of these grades factual information become the use of scientific skills and attitudes.
To show the importance of NECO Examination especially in the social science, some secondary schools in Ikere Local Government Area of Ekiti State, decided to organize a joint annual NECO examination for their final year students, NECO examination council (WAEC) for examples, a student who performed well in the examination could be admitted into some of our higher institution of learning. He stressed further that NECO examination play a vital role in assessing students preparation for the G.C.E examination, we have all understood that NECO Examination, is very important compared to WAEC or SCCE but to do this requires a lot of work.
Statement of the Problem
To be concise, the main purpose of this study is to establish and study the relationship between candidates’ performance in the NECO (Economics) examination result on one hand, these question can therefore be asked; to what extent do candidates perform in this (NECO). Does economics serve as reliable prediction of individual performance in the subsequent WAEC examination in the same subject?
Objective of the Study
The main objective of this investigation is to find out the relationship between candidates performance in the NECO and West African School Certificate (Economics) examination in Ikere Local Government area of Ekiti State.
It also intends to establish the relationship between each institution over all performance in the NECO and WAEC Economics examination result have been assumed by teachers and others to predict adequately student performance in WAEC. There are a lot of author who had written about this one of them was.
Adewunmi (2002), who observe that NECO school certificate examination result were for six years used in some parts of the country including Ekiti state for provisional selection of candidates into BS.c. course and some other post secondary institution substitution or alternating the result of the WAEC examination.
With this one we believe and accept that examination is very important not that alone, it is also thought that these result are used by WAEC for formation and diagnostic evaluation purpose before final results can be out. This means takes cognizance of NECO examination.This Project is is available for the below list of Nigerian State capitals.
