Abstract


This study examined the ICT resources situation and academic achievement of business education students. It was conducted in the Department of Business Education, Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo, Nigeria. Descriptive survey research design was used. The population and samples used for the study were 2009/2010, 2010/2011, 2011/2012, 2012/2013 and 2014/2015 set of business education students. Three research questions and two hypotheses were raised to guide the study. Primary data collected from the Department of Business Education of the college which is ICT resources data and students’ academic performance obtained from the final year results of the sessions under study were used for the study. The data were analyzed using simple percentage and mean. Findings revealed that ICT resources were grossly short- supplied and the available ones have become obsolete. It was also revealed that the students’ academic achievement were very low as a result of dearth of resources required for effective teaching and learning. There is no significant difference between the academic achievements of the students but there is significant relationship between resource allocation and students’ academic achievement in the sampled college. Government and other stakeholders in education were encouraged to come together to salvage the resource situation and the poor academic condition obtained from the programme.
