CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1       Background of the Study

Human organization whether large or small, primitive or modern, educational or non-educational, engages in some activities or operation. Which leads to the achievement of their set goals and objectives.

The emergency of the modern world has been significantly impacting, productive, profitable and worthwhile in the conceptualization of evaluating the price and worth of the education. Thus, educational activities cannot take place in a vacuum, rather, in a well-structured formal settings or environment called school.

 

School being an integral and indispensable element of actualizing the set of educational goals and objectives is the birth place of citizens ideal. It is more important that all the stakeholder in the academic circle be it teachers, students, principals, administrators and lot more should collaborate and work in order to have an outstanding result.

Despite all the process involved in the teaching-learning process such as sequential planning of the teaching process, organizing the classroom to suit the desired educational purpose, proper and adequate classroom management, teacher’s intellectual and good oratory skills through evaluation of the teaching activities and lot more.

 

EFFECTS OF SCHOOL SUPERVISION ON THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF STUDENTS IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS

The task of the school supervision has become increasingly complex within the past decades which call for urgent needs of the school supervision or supervisory teams to make use of relevant behavioural theories and techniques to be able to manage the modern complex educational institutions successfully.

School supervision is the activity carried out by supervisors to oversee the activity of the workers or staff and that of the learners in order to ascertain the successful outcome of the teaching-learning process.

 

The supervision conducted by the school authority must be properly and effectively done. Especially, in the teaching of Basic Science is a subject that deals with the study of living things and non-living things. It also combines all other science subjects such as physics, biology, health science, agricultural science, geography, etc.

To this extent, the study is aimed at investigating the impacts of school supervision on the academic performance of secondary school students in Basic Science. The findings from the study area may as well be of a general application to other schools. Thus, in terms of planning, organizing and evaluating students academic performance within and outside the study area.

 

1.2       Statement of the Study

For some years now, it has been observed with keen interest the sharp increase in poor academic performance of students in Basic Science subject. Most especially in Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination (JSCE), as a result of inadequate supervision.

However, Basic Science subject has played and is still playing enterprise like any other human organization requires adequate supervision to ascertain the pre-determined aims and objectives. Also, to increase students’ performance, the effects of school supervision must be considered. To this extent, this research work is structured to investigate impacts of school’s supervision on academic performance of secondary school students.

 

1.3       Purpose of the Study

The main purpose of this study was to determine the effects of school supervision on the academic performance of students in secondary schools.  Specifically, the study aims at:

  1. determining the difference in the academic performance of Basic Science students which their school is always supervised and those that their school is not always supervised.
  2. ascertain the difference in the academic performance of male and female students where their school is always supervised.

 

1.4       Hypotheses

  1. There is no significant difference in the mean performance scores of Basic Science students which their schools is always supervised and those that their school is not always supervised.
  2. There is no significant difference in the mean performance scores of Basic Science male and female students which their school is always supervised.

 

1.5       Research Questions

  1. What is the difference in the mean performance scores of Basic Science?
  2. What is the difference in the mean performance scores of Basic Science male and female students which their school is always supervised?

 

1.6       Significance of the Study

The findings of the study are expected to be of utmost importance to the supervisors, educators, researchers, classroom teachers, principals, students and the government in general through the following perspectives:

The findings of the study is significant to the supervisors and government agencies to use appropriate supervisory measures to motivate and arouse. Both the interest of the teachers and students on effective teaching and learning of school subjects. This would enhance teachers’ productivity and students’ performance on the requisite skills.

The significant of this study and that of related literatures would help teachers modify their instructional strategies in line with the recommendations and suggestions for improved teacher professional performance as well as guiding staff development.

 

The findings will also be relevant to the teacher as a purposeful and constructive advice for increased productivity of teachers in diverse disciplines. It utmost goal is to help teachers learn what their problems are and seek the best methods of solving them be it individual or group problems.

The findings of this study will be of utmost significance as a reference point to prospective researcher on school supervision and teachers’ productivity.

 

The findings of the study will be significant to the Ministry of Education to help prioritize qualified school supervisors. Who have technical skills about education especially at the secondary schools level. Government should not sacrifice the merit and competence on the altar of political affiliation.

Finally, it is also vital as it would add to the existing studies and literature relating to the school supervision and teachers’ productivity.

 

1.7       Scope of the Study

For the purpose of attaining the objectives of these findings, this study is not expected to cover beyond examine school supervision and its influences on the academic performance of the students in Basic Science. Therefore, the study focuses specifically on the impact of school supervision on the academic performance of secondary school students in Basic Science.
