Abstract

The poor performance of building trade students in practical work (psychomotor skill) in the National technical Certificate Examination (NTC) conducted by National Business and Technical Education Board (NABTEB) in recent times prompted this research work. The study is an attempt to find solution to the poor academic performance of students of building trade in their practical paper II of the National Technical Certificate Examinations being conducted by NABTEB. The study was to find out the effect of using systems instructional approach (Dick & Carey) model in developing psychomotor skills among students of building trade in technical colleges in Imo State. The design employed was the quasi-experimental research, non-equivalent control group design to ascertain the effectiveness of the systems instructional approach model. The population was 150 National Technical Certificate II students of the four technical colleges in Imo State. The instrument for data collection was the Psychomotor Skills Achievement Test in Building Trade (PSATBT) developed by the researchers. Three research questions were analyzed using the pre-test, post-test mean values, while analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) and paired sample t-test statistic were used to test the four hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. Results of the study among others showed that there was significant difference between the academic achievement of the experimental and control groups in the post-test (PSATBT) as revealed by their mean scores in favour of the experimental group. Based on the findings it was recommended that the systems instructional approach model should be used in the teaching
