SELF-ASSESSMENT IN MATHEMATICS AS CORRELATE OF PERFORMANCE OF STUDENTS IN JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL BASIC SCIENCE IN ONDO STATE, NIGERIA

S. O. Adebule

Abstract


This study investigated the relationship between student’s self-assessment in Mathematics and academic performance in junior secondary school Basic Science. The research adopted the descriptive research design of the survey type as there was no treatment and manipulation of subjects to treatment. However, it involves the use of questionnaire titled Self-Assessment in Mathematics (SAM) adapted from Oloda (2006) and revalidated by the researchers and students records of performance in Basic Science. The instrument has face and content validity and the reliability coefficient of 0.82. A total of 300 students were selected by stratified and simple random sampling techniques from ten schools in five Local Government Area of Ondo State. Pearson Product Moment Correlation coefficient was used to test the two hypotheses generated. The results showed that Self-Assessment in Mathematics is significantly related to Basic Science.
