  • 2. What are those things that determine Students’ Performance?
  • 3. It is generally believed that Cost, Location, etc.are synonymous with Quality and Quantity.For instance; it is evident that Public schools arecheaper to attend compared to their Privatecounterparts, but are there corroborative evidencewhen it comes to the performance of the Pupils inNational Examinations?Does the cost of School Fees, Location, SchoolAge, School system and Type, etc. play anysignificant role in determining how well Pupilsperform in WAEC / NECO? Also, are there anystatistical evidence showing the effect of Locationon Pupils performances?
  • 4. Source of DataThe data used for this analysis was downloadedfrom www.schoolsinnigeria.com.As at the time of this analysis; there were 460Schools listed with the following information: Location of School & Area, Name of School, School Fees, Year Founded, Curriculum, School System – Boarding / Day School type – Mixed / Unisex Population of Student / Teachers, WAEC results for most recent 3 years, Total Enrollment for WAEC, Total Pass & Percentage, Result of Best Student for each year

  • 6. Of this 460 schools; only 234 have WAEC resultsavailable for 3 years and were used for the study.Two Variables were derived from the result;Quantity of Passes & Quality of Passes (Best Result Analysis)Quantity of Passes : Implies the percentage of Pupilswith passes compared to the total enrollment for WAECQuality of Passes : Implies the degree of passes basedon the Best Result. Results are provided in A, B & C; aCandidate with 5A’s is regarded to have performed betterthan one with 3A’s.Each Best Result is converted as follows:3A’s, 4B’s, 1C A candidate with 3A’s, 4B’s, 1CLet A = 5, B = 4, C = 3 is converted to 32 using the substitution as illustrated3*5 + 4*4 + 1*3 = 15+16+1 = 32
  • 7. This conversion is done so as to get a statisticwhich measures the quality of Pupils result.See Sample data below: School Name Best Result Quality of Pass A.A. International Schools 2As, 3Bs 1C 25 Abuja International Academy 8Cs 24 Access High School Calabar 3As, 5Bs, 1C 38 Adrao International School 1A, 5Bs, 2Cs 31 Ahmadu Ribadu College 7As, 2Bs 43 Bols International College 2As, 5Bs 2Cs 36 CAL College 5As, 3Bs, 1C 40 Cambridge International School 6Bs, 2Cs 30 Ahmadu Ribadu College with 7A’s, 2B’s on conversion got 43 as Quality of Pass, which apparently is the best result from the list above. 7 * 5 + 2 * 4 = 43

  • 18. Quantity of Result How many Students Passed? %
  • 19. The Quantity of Result is about the number of Studentswho obtained at least credit passes in WAEC.Why is this important?While it is admirable to produce the best result, whatpercentage of the entire student also achieved success?This analysis, like the foregoing, seeks to establish theschool with the best performance measured againstLocation, School system, Type, Curriculum, Yearfounded and School Fees.Which would you rather prefer; enroll yourChildren/Wards in the school with the Best Result or theSchool with the best quantity of Passes or both?Whatever is your decision, in a short while you will findstatistical evidence for or against it.

  • 26. The following observations were made from theanalysis of Students Pass Rate against: Location of School, School System – Boarding / Day, School type – Mixed / Unisex, School Fees, Curriculum, Year Founded Nine of the top 17 schools are located in Lagos On the average Day school system perform better The performance of Mixed schools are far better than single sex; 1 Girls only and 3 Boys only schools emerged in the top 50. Schools fees seems to matter when it comes to consistency in academic performance Nigerian Curriculum is the most preferred; 30 of the 50 schools use Nigerian Curriculum beside those with Nigeria and others. Academic performance & Age of school show indirect relationship; marginally, the younger the school, the better the performance
  • 27. Conclusion: Location of School may not matter when it comes to Student with Best Results but it does matter for percentage of Passes. Results; Students who attend Day & Boarding Schools are most likely to perform better than Day or Boarding Only schools. Mixed schools’ performance is excellent in both “Best Result” analysis and “Percentage of Passes”. None of Boys or Girls Only came close, however Boys Only perform better than Girls Only. Only The relationship between School Fees and Performance is not well defined; though schools with high fees show more in top performance. Nigerian Curriculum is the most preferred, either in “Best Result” analysis or Percentage of Passes. In this analysis; Age is just a number when it comes to Performance. Younger schools really outperformed older ones.
