A Study of Secondary School Students’ Academic Performance at the Senior School Certificate Examinations and Implications for Educational Planning and Policy in Nigeria
TL Adepoju, EE Oluchukwu
African Research Review , 2011,
Abstract: This study assessed and investigated the academic performance of secondary school students in two principal subjects (English Language and Mathematics) at the Senior School Certificate Examinations (SSCE) in ten secondary schools typical of urban and rural locations in five randomised Local Government Areas of Oyo State, Nigeria between 2005 and 2007. The study employed a descriptive survey research design. An instrument titled: Students’ Academic Performance in English Language and Mathematics Questionnaire (SAPEMQ) was used to collect relevant data for the study. The ten secondary schools involved were selected based on simple randomsampling technique and the statistical tools employed to analyse the data collected were percentages, means scores and multiple regression (backward procedure). Four research questions and one null hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. The result among other things revealed that, there was a marked difference in the performance of students in urban and rural schools at the SSCE with impressive means scores obtained in urban schools (Urban = 69.8, 54.4 and 60.2 in 2005, 2006 and 2007 respectively;Rural = 36.4, 24.9 and 23.8 in 2005, 2006 and 2007 respectively). The implications of the findings for educational planning and policy in Nigeria were discussed.
Monetization as a Motivator for the Freemium Educational Platform Growth  [PDF]
Ilya V. Osipov,Anna Y. Prasikova,Alex A. Volinsky
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: The paper describes user behavior as a result of introducing monetization in the freemium educational online platform. Monetization resulted in alternative system growth mechanisms, causing viral increase in the number of users. Given different options, users choose the most advantageous and simple ones for them. System metrics in terms of the K-factor was utilized as an indicator of the system user base growth. The weekly K-factor almost doubled as a result of monetization introduction. Monetization and viral growth can be both competing and complementary mechanisms for the system growth.
The education of Physics in elementary school: conceptions of the teaching staff practice  [PDF]

Investiga??es em Ensino de Ciências , 2007,
Abstract: This present study sought to investigate the Sciences education developed in the Elementary school, emphasizing the identification of the physical presence in the curricular subjects at this school level. For this reason, interviews were accomplished with thirty four teachers in order to allow a mapping about the current science education before the sample selected for the research. Besides the identification of the subjects approached in Sciences, the research made the investigation, in such a more specific way, of physics in the curricular programs of elementary classes possible, as well as the way this subject was present during the graduation process of the teachers were being investigated. The results of the investigation pointed to the following issues: the contents of the curricular subject of Sciences, for the level being investigated, include fairly exclusive Biology topics; the lack of experimental activities; an education linked to the concepts and methodologies presented in graduation courses of the teaching staff; the conscientiousness of these teaching staff that the national legislation gives them freedom in curricular planning and organizing, even so, they feel themselves stuck into programs previously established by Education Secretariats or by educational books; and moreover, that the difficulties to discuss Physics in Elementary school are related to its graduating process.

The planning of Mechanics and Modern Physics teaching activities for blind students: difficulties and alternatives.
Eder Pires de Camargo,Roberto Nardi
Revista electr?3nica de investigaci?3n en educaci?3n en ciencias , 2006,
Abstract: We report here partial outcomes of a study aimed to verify future High School teachers performance when, during the development of a called “TeachingPractice” undergraduate course, were asked to plan Mechanics and Modern Physics topics to a students class which included visual handicapped pupils. Data analyzed show that the main difficulties presented by the future Physics High School teachers are related to the approach to know physics phenomena as dependent of vision. By other hand, as alternatives, future teachers showed creativity in order to surpass passive aptitudes related to this educational problem and working out methodological strategies deprived of the relation knowing/seeing.
Educational Inequalities and School Dropout in Greece  [cached]

International Journal of Education , 2011, DOI: 10.5296/ije.v3i2.855
Abstract: This paper reviews the research pertaining to school termination or “dropping out” of school in Greece. This work provides information on the state of educational policies in Greece dealing with issues of social inequalities and focusing on the increasing phenomenon of school drop out in the country. Educational inequality, as this is expressed in terms of school dropout, seems to persist in Greek education. It seems to be related to the specific characteristics of various regions. We could safely argue therefore, that there is a regional dimension in educational inequality in Greece. For the classification of the 54 regional units in Greece, based on the phenomenon of school drop out, we used the hierarchical cluster analysis with the criterion of Ward for the creation of the clusters that been characterized by the smallest loss of information and the squared Euclidean distance as distance measure between the observations.
Beyond the School Gates: Educational Visits in the Primary School
Keith Richmond
Educate~ , 2006,
Abstract: Contextualization Although the research note that follows is primarily about the value of educational visits, undertaken by primary school pupils as part of their school experience, it also raises issues about the extent to which pupils’ voices are heard in the debate around the value of such visits. Further, it identifies some of the issues that, necessarily it seems, face a teacher-researcher working in their own classroom, in everyday conditions. If pupils’ views about their learning are to be canvassed and taken into account by their teachers, accessing those points of view and making them meaningful for the children involved and other children, bears careful consideration. The account that follows identifies and begins to explore some of these important considerations.

Kondratenko A.B.
Vestnik Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University , 2013,
Abstract: This article dwells upon the problem of structuring the educational process in an information society. The factors influencing the educational process in an information society are identified in the article. The model of educational process of personalizing students’ education is offered. The efficiency of the personalized e-learning environment educational technology applied by the author is assessed.
Relationship between Senior School Physics Students' Perceptions of Their Physics Teachers' Effectiveness and the Performance in Physics
E O Omosewo
African Research Review , 2007,
Abstract: This study investigated the correlation between senior physics student's perception of their physics teachers' effectiveness and the students' performance in physics. One hundred and seventy-seven (177) Senior Secondary School year 3 physics students of six (6) randomly selected secondary schools in Ilorin metropolis took part in the study. The instrument used was a designed questionnaire labeled ‘Profile of Dimensions of Effective Physics Teaching'. The students' continuous assessment scores were correlated with perceptions of students about their physics teachers' effectiveness and the students' performance in physics. This finding has implication for physics teaching. The physics teacher must take cognizance of the specific needs of pupils in the planning and delivery of his/her lesson and such leader should devote substantial time to meeting these needs. This is because it has been found from this study and others that have been reviewed that meeting such needs have positive relationship with students' academic performance.
