Abstract


The main thrust of this study was to examine the impact of educational facilities on students’ academic performance in Abeokuta North Local Government Area of Ogun, Nigeria. To achieve the purpose, two null hypotheses were formulated to direct the study. Literature review was carried out accordingly. Ex-post facto research design was adopted for the study. A sample size of five hundred and fifty secondary schools students were randomly selected, through the simply random sampling techniques. The questionnaire was the main instrument used for data collection. The reliability estimate of the instrument was established through the test-re-test method. Independent t-test analysis was the statistical analysis adopted to test the hypotheses. Each hypothesis was tested at .05 level of significance. The result of the analysis revealed that good classroom buildings and the use of ICT significantly affect students differently in their academic performance. Based on the findings, it was recommended that adequate well structure classroom buildings and the use of ICT in teaching and learning process should be made available for all school. Also, learners should be encouraged to take active part in the learning process with computers.
