Licencing Abstract This is a descriptive research of a correlation type where students were sampled from a college of education to find out the relationship between proficiency in English language and academic performance among students of science and technical education.
Findings revealed that there is correlation between proficiency in English language and academic performance of students in science and technical education; students in technical education performed better than their counterpart in science education; students who passed English language performed better than those who failed both in science and technical education.
Some recommendations were suggested at the end of the study.
Introduction The importance of English language for enhancing educational attainment through improved communication ability can never be over emphasized. Students who have so much difficulties with their communication skill in English language may not function effectively, not only in English language but in their academic and this is no reason than the fact that English language in Nigeria today is the language of text-books and the language of instruction in schools.
Nevertheless, where the proficiency in English is lacking in any academic setting, it will definitely lower the academic performance of such students. Technical Education is an aspect of education, which leads to the acquisition of practical, basic scientific knowledge which involves special manipulative skills, creative minds, and attitudes relating to occupations in various sectors of the economic and social life 1219 The mind set is that the individual is trained to be self reliant, and well productive.
The 12 views technical education to be further understood as a an integral part of general education, b a means of preparing for occupational fields and for effective participation in the world of work; c an aspect of lifelong learning and a preparation for responsible citizenship; d an instrument for promoting environmentally sound sustainable development; e a method of alleviating poverty.
However, this cannot be achieved without properly understanding the language of communication and instruction in school. Students trained in both science and technical education programme require English language to properly understand the contents of the programme, which in turn will improve the academic understanding of the student.
Science education is the study of biology, chemistry or physics in conjunction with the principle and method of education to be able to share scientific processes and content with those who are not traditionally in scientific community 4. To this effect, good language competence in English language may be a positive predictive validity variable on the performance of students on intelligence test.
Thus, language inefficiency invariably leads to poor academic performance 8 No wonder why today according to 16 much emphasis is placed on passing of English language at credit or distinction level in addition to other subjects to enable any candidates gain admission into any Nigeria Higher Institution of learning.
English language is very important to any course in Nigeria educational system especially Science and Technical Education courses. One could thus inferred from the fore-going that anyone who can read English can keep in touch with the whole world without leaving his own house 5 which no doubt have positive impact on academic performance of students in all fields.
No wonder why 6 firmly stated that if under sentimental urge, we give up English; we will cut ourselves off from knowledge.
This is a correlation type because correlation is very important in educational studies as argued by 3. For easy analysis the data was divided into five groups which are: General group for both science and technical education 2.
Science education group who failed English language 3. Science education group who passed English language 4.Comme vous, la redaction reçois parfois des mails des amis je viens de reçevoir celui ci qui nous indique que la société MTN Cameroun recrute dans ().
May 06, · Although many studies have revealed the importance of study skills for students' first‐year performance and college retention, the extent of the impact of study skills preparation on students' academic achievement is less clear. Abstract. This is a descriptive research of a correlation type where students were sampled from a college of education to find out the relationship between proficiency in English language and academic performance among students of science and technical education.
The study investigated the effect of demonstration method of teaching on students’ achievement in agricultural science in secondary school in Kogi East Education Zone of Kogi State.
Two research questions and one hypothesis guided the study. The study employed a quasi-experimental research design. The population for the study was The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of college student employment on academic achievement.
Presently, 55% to 80% of students are employed while attending college (Miller, ; King, ). These high percentages have led some to believe that students who work suffer from decreased academic performance.
Academic performance records of 50 students per teacher, which is 48, students’ scores were also used. Two questionnaires and a rating scale were used to collect data for the study.
