ABSTRACT

Chemistry education has been identified to be one of the major bedrock for the transformation of our national economy, and hence must be accorded adequate attention. In the study, an attempt was made in ascertaining the remote causes for the poor performances reported in recent times in chemistry at the senior secondary level of education. 240 persons were selected through random sampling for the study. They were made up of SS3 students and teacher. Two questionnaires titled investigation of perceived causes of poor performance of students were constructed for both teachers and students. A thirty — one item research questionnaire for the teachers and twenty item research item questionnaire for the student built on a four (4) point scale was used for data collection. Simple statistical tool such as frequency, percentage and mean were used to answer to the research questions. The study found out that teachers qualification, method of teaching, teachers teaching experience, use of instructional materials, gender of the students and the different type of schools influence the performance of chemistry students. The researcher recommended that government should recruit more qualified chemistry teachers and students should be taken to a well equipped practical laboratory to boost their motivation and interest for chemistry.
