INFLUENCE OF TEACHER EFFECTIVENSS ON PRACTICAL WORK PERFORMANCE OF TECHNICAL COLLEGE STUDENTS IN ENUGU STATE
The main focus of the study centred on practical performance of students and teachers effectiveness in technical college workshops in Enugu State. The students weakness and poor performance in workshop processes formed the problem for the study. Two (2) research questions and one hypothesis guided the study. Descriptive survey design was adopted for the study, with a population of 564 respondents. A sample size of 150 was randomly selected for the study. A structured questionnaire developed by the researcher
called Technical Teachers Practical Effectiveness Questionnaire (TTEQ) was used in collecting datafor the study. Four (4) point rating scale was used. Validation of the instrument was done by experts in measurement and evaluation. Reliability test was done using Abia state. The reliability coefficient value of 0.76 was obtained using Cronbach Alpha statistic. Out of the 150 copies of the instrument distributed, only 140 were correctly filled and returned. Mean (X) with standard deviation (SD) was used in analyzing data collected. The hypothesis was test at 0.05 level of significance using t-test statistics. The findings in R/Q 1 & 2 tables 1&2 revealed that teachers used for the study are effective in
workshop processes, but students are not happy with the level of exposure to practical training in the school workshops. The result of the hypothesis revealed that significant difference does exist between the performance of students taught by effective teachers and those taught by in effective teachers. Recommendations were made focusing on the
government to sustain the technical programmes by improving on what is on ground presently.
