A COMPARATIVE APPRAISAL OF THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENT IN INTEGRATED SCIENCE AND INTRODUCTORY TECHNOLOGY

Abstract and Figures

A comparative study of students’ academic performance in Junior Secondary School Certificate Examination (JSSCE) Basic Science in Public and Private Schools in Ebonyi State Nigeria from 2009-2010 was investigated. The ex-post factor comparative research design was employed in the study. The study covered the 3 education zones in Ebonyi State. A stratified random sampling technique was used to select 24 public and private junior secondary schools from urban and rural areas of Ebonyi State for the study.
