Abstract

The main purpose of the study is to identify ways of improving performance of students in domestic and industrial installations in national technical certificate examinations in technical colleges in Yobe state. Literatures relevant to the study were reviewed. The descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. A total of 160 people (40 students and 120 teachers) were sampled for the study and a 25item questionnaire was developed and validated for data collection. A test- re-test was administered to determine the degree of internal consistency of the test instrument. The major findings of the study showed that: The syllabus for Domestic and industrial installations has certain deficiencies, there are inadequate Domestic and industrial installations teachers in the schools, there is inadequacy of instructional materials, tools and machines for students practical experience. Based on the above findings, conclusions were drawn and the following recommendations were made among others: Only qualified and well trained technical teachers with the relevant teaching qualifications should be employed to teach in our technical schools, adequate instructional materials, facilities and modern machines/tools should be provided.

CHAPTER  I

1.0    INTRODUCTION

 1.1   BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Knowledge is acquired through the process of teaching and learning and every generation has been faced with the problem of enhancing and transmitting knowledge to the younger generation for long. The main channel of transmission has been an informal process which involved some teacher and learners. To date this problem is still evident in our school system.

Aina (1991) noted that the techniques of teaching used by teachers do not encourage initiative among students. He equally added that many technical teacher are not willing to accept change in method of teaching technical subjects.

The young people in the culture acquire the fundamental skills and knowledge by observing their elders at work and receiving instructions as the elders are willing to give. The best way of providing instruction in the fundamental crafts like carpentry, or furniture crafts is the apprenticeship system. This is where a child is sent to a master crafts man who will teach him the trade and provide much of his up-bringing. This system was effective but informal. Therefore there were needs for formal training which has led to the introduction of technical and vocational education in the school system.

Botton and Copa (1983) posited that technical education has a positive effect on the future earning and success of participant when compared to a similar group of non participant. It has also been known that student from technical colleges found their occupational education more relevant in term of job expectation than students in secondary school became after graduation they tend to exhibit the practical knowledge they have acquired by creating a mini–workshop for themselves so as to have something to uplift their life situation whether government employs them or not. The federal government of Nigeria (FGN, 1998) defined technical education as that form of education which is obtainable, at technical colleges. This is equivalent to the senior secondary school, but designed to prepared individual acquire practical skills  basic and scientific knowledge and attitude required as craftsman and technicians at sub professional level.

It also specifics five levels where technical education is offered they are;

-         Pre – vocational school

-         Vocational school

-         Technical colleges

-         Secondary  school

-         Polytechnic colleges of education

-         And university

Ohuche (1991) describes the policy as an eloquent and comprehensive statement expected among other things to guide. The Nigerian educational system in the foreseeable future.

It’s necessary for technical college curriculum in Nigeria to be consistently trustworthy and accurate in order to measure ability of it’s recipient for self reliance.

Technical colleges in Yobe state offer many trades/course which include furniture  making block laying concreting, refrigeration and air conditions, electrical installation radio and television, motor vehicle mechanics, carpentry and joinery machine Domestic and industrila installations and other.

However it was observed that performance of student, particularly those that in the Domestic and industrila installations. Technology trade is not encouraging based on certain inadequacies in technical colleges in Yobe state.

Ehiametalor and Sofolahan (1989) observed that there are not enough vocational required skill, to teach in the vocational and technical school and such is constituting a serious draw back in the development of technical colleges.

Again Nzelum (1993) remarked that buildings and well equipped workshop are of paramount importance in the institution of learning unfortunately the same can not be seed of most of Domestic and industrila installations workshop in technical colleges of Yobe state. From the foregoing it can be implied shows that some technical colleges in Nigeria are faced with problem of teaching and learning  technical subject particularly in Domestic and industrila installations technology because of lack of trained teachers, training facilities as well as poor teaching method. Therefore it’s necessary to examine the problem affecting the performances of the student in Domestic and industrila installations teaching in technical colleges of Yobe state.

1.2    STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The issues confronting the teaching and learning of domestic and industrial installations are enormous for instances  Musa’az. (1980) said that the problem being faced in Nigeria educational system include, the following ;- Storage of classroom, furniture trained, supportive staff and supply of enough equipment.

From the above it seems that the performances of student in Domestic and industrial installations in technical colleges of Yobe state could be affected by the following ;- Inadequate instructional materials, facilities/ equipment and appropriate methods of teaching in view of the foregoing observations therefore it becomes necessary to identify some of the strategies that could be employed in order to improve the performances of student in the Domestic and industrial installations in the technical colleges of Yobe state.

1.3    PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

The purpose of this study is to identify strategies for improving student performance in Domestic and industrial installations technology in technical colleges of Yobe  state. Specifically the study is intended to;

1.   Identify the problem affecting student performance in Domestic and industrial installations trade National Technical Certificate Examinations.

2.   Determine the adequacy on instructional materials provided for the teaching and learning of Domestic and industrial installations technology in technical colleges of Yobe state.

3.   Identify the techniques used in the teaching of Domestic and industrial installations technology in technical college.

4.   Identify possible ways that could be adopted in order to improve the performance of students in Domestic and industrial installations trade.

1.4    SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

The finding of this study will help Domestic and industrial installations teacher in the state to identify and use the most appropriate method of teaching Domestic and industrial installations.

The finding of this study will avail the state government information in the state of technical college in the state and hope filling encourage them provide the necessary infrastructure, equipment and training materials that are basic requirement for learning.

Student performance will improve as a result of positive response by government.

1.5    RESEARCH QUESTION

This study specifically intends to give answer to the following research questions.

1.           How adequate are the instructional materials available for the teaching and learning of Domestic and industrial installations technology in technical colleges of Yobe state

2.           What are Factor affecting the teaching and learning of Domestic and industrial installations in technical colleges of Yobe state

3.           What is the predominant method used in teaching and learning of Domestic and industrial installations technology in technical colleges of Yobe state.

4.           What are the strategies for improving the study of Domestic and industrial installations in technical colleges in Yobe state
