ABSTRACT

Test constructed by the teacher at the class room leve l at the end of a term or end of the year is referred to as school based examination (SBE) student often perform well in the SBE because items are drawn from topic covered by the class teacher. This study is to find out the predictive validity of SBE in relation to NECO and WAEC, SSCE. The population of the study was all (670) senior secondary school in Borno state. Student performance in SBE and WAEC and NECO in English language and history in senior secondary school in 2006, 2007 and 2008 were correlated. Purposive sampling was used in selecting the school. At the time of this study only three school were found to be offering English language but not history) one school in Gwoza zone and two in Maiduguri zone. These three schools were used as samples. The result of the analysis revealed that student’s performance SSCE IN WAEC and SSCE NECO was low but there performance in SBE is high. The student performance is low in English in NECO and WAEC because no student score A or B grade for the three years in school studied. While no student obtained A or B in NECO and WAEC, the student performance in history for the three years show that few student obtained A and B grades the researcher recommend that teacher in senior secondary schools should be made to go for workshops on test construction so that they can construct good test items to match WAEC and NECO standard.

ABSTRACT

The study was a survey meant to assess the impact of Geographic Information System (GIS) for land administration processes in Nasarawa Geographic Information Service (NAGIS), Nasarawa State, Nigeria. A set of questionnaire was administered on four hundred and eight respondents who were randomly chosen within the study area. The data collected were analyzed using tables and percentages. The results obtained showed that NAGIS offers services ranging from land registration, property online search, valuation, certification and re-certification of titles, verification and processing of allocation to property owners. The study indicated that residential and commercial properties constituted the bulk of transactions undertaken by the Agency. The findings also revealed that the activities of NAGIS has impacted positively in improving land security, increased the speed of  processing land records, reduction in document falsification, ensured a more secured land registration processes and contributed significantly in the internally revenue generation ability of the State government. The study recommended among others that capacity training for staff members of NAGIS should be done on regular basis to ensure that the system is always updated and managed for effective and efficient service delivery to property owners.

ABSTRACT

This paper examined the effects of green pricing on consumers’ attitudes towards sustainable consumption in Nigeria. The study employed the descriptive survey design where data were collected from a sample of 238 consumers doing shopping at various supermarkets in Port Harcourt metropolis. A structured questionnaire was used to gather data from the respondents after the respondents have been intercepted while shopping at the supermarkets. The data collected were analyzed statically using descriptive (mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistic like the Spearman Rank Order Correlation. The SPSS version 21.0 was used to correlate the data on the study variables. The findings revealed that there is significant positive relationship between price premium and consumers’ cognitive attitude toward sustainable consumption. The study also found a significant positive relationship between price premium and consumers’ affective attitude toward sustainable consumption. A significant negative relationship was found between price premium and consumers’ cognitive attitude toward sustainable consumption. From the findings, it was concluded that while consumers

ABSTRACT

This study was aimed at assessing the impact of building orientation on indoor air temperature as an indicator of thermal performance of classrooms in Maiduguri and comparing the level of compliance of such classrooms to internationally accepted ASHRAE standard for achieving acceptable thermal condition. The study involves taking air temperature of one open-ventilated classroom for each identified orientation in the case study school. The data were collected using Thermometer and air temperatures were recorded for certain hours of a day during normal weather condition. The results show that air temperatures in classrooms whose window orientations are on east and west were higher than those on north and south orientations. This could be attributed to the direct exposure of the east and west windows to direct sun rising and setting. Therefore, the overall air temperatures for the four classrooms observed indicated higher than the recommended ASHRAE standard. This can best be explained to prevailing weather condition of Maiduguri which is generally hot. This implied that attention and abilities in implementation, listening and perception of students decrease in such kind of classroom environment.

Keywords: Air Temperature, ASHRAE Standard, Building Orientation.

ABSTRACT

The increasing phenomenon of globalisation has transformed Nigerian universities into revenue generation centers. No longer are universities in Nigeria ivory towers in terms of teaching, research, value orientation and re-orientation. The once hallowed towers have been converted into markets whose ultimate goal isthe search for profit. Globalisation which is the newest method of internationalisation of capitalhas conditioned Nigerian universities in line with market ethos whose belief is that the beginning and end of the goodlife is profit making and maximisation. The result is that universities in Nigeria do not have the capacityto ensure standards as true citadels of learningand are now seen as places where degrees and diplomas are available for sale.

Key words: Nigeria, University, Globalisation, Market, Profit

 

INTRODUCTION

The history of university education in Nigeria is a chequered one. Prior to the establishment of the University College Ibadan in 1948, Nigerians obtained university degrees abroad. The University of Ibadan continued only as an affiliate of the University of London until 1962 when it was granted autonomy which made it a full-fledged university. In 1960, the University of Nigeria, Nsukka was established as the first indigenous university in Nigeria. This brought about easier access to university education and the domestication of university curricula to reflect local content and relevance.Since then the number of universities in Nigeria has grown rapidly from 6 in 1970 to 143 in 2016. Universities in Nigeria are usually classified into first (1960-1970), second (1970-1975), third (1980-1992), and fourth (2002-2016) generation universities. Seventy-eight (78)of the universities in Nigeria are publicly owned and managed, while 65 are private concerns.
