Dunn & Mulvenon (2009, p. 3) describe it as an assessment designed to “determine a students’ academic development after a set unit of material” while Moss (2012, p. 235) defines it as determining “the student’s overall achievement in a specific area of learning at a particular time”. Regardless of how summative assessment is defined, it is considered to be generally evaluative as results may be recorded as scores or grades. Summative assessment occurs in many forms but the current Junior Certificate falls into that of standardised testing. In research carried out by Shiel,Kellaghan and Moran (2010) for the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA), they suggested placing standardised testing into three different contexts. Firstly classroom use, where the individual achienvements of the students were of main concern.
Involvement in various student organizations, curricular and extracurricular activities are perceived to be detrimental in a student’s academic performance. Contrary to popular belief, more research studies confirmed that student involvement actually benefits them by providing opportunities that will help develop their innate talents and abilities. Through active participation in different organizations and school activities a student is likely proved to have well developed self-concept, better socialization skills and attain a higher grade point average (GPA). Study is conducted to show the significance between academic performance and student involvement. Introduction In our society today, students have been associated with a lot of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.
The home and school coming together is critical for student improvement and success. Portfolio assessment gives active participation by describing the projected outcomes, advantages, characteristics, and format of portfolio assessment, it also can help parents begin to understand the process and purposes. Teachers who invite parents to participate in to help with the portfolio assessment brings a positive efforts of their children help and parents also developed a better understanding of the process of developing their child to be at a mastery level. It helps parents appreciate the strengths and growth of which children have developed as well as to better understand the need for the support and various kinds of activities and instruction you are providing when it comes to portfolio
Students should have a good understanding of the assessment marking criteria. The design of these marking criteria involves the discussion of learning outcomes. The implementation of self-assessment involves a lot of effort, reflection and planning on behalf of the tutor. Students should be made to perceive self-assessment as a natural process in their learning. They should be actively involved in its implementation and its importance in lifelong learning.
More so, this study determines the relationship of the two variables as well as the difference of level of self-efficacy and academic performance along grade level. Finally, this study aims to create an intervention/enhancement plan of the reverse integration program suited to the learning needs of the junior high school
• To compare the difference between the academic performance of the students from the single parent family and nuclear family. • To discover what measures can be put in place to improve the academic of the students from single parent family. Research questions • Is there any difference between the academic performance of the students from single parent households and nuclear family? • What are the single parenthood factors affecting academic performance of students? • To what extent does single parenthood influence academic performance of ledumang senior secondary school students?
Collaborative effort of the school administrations, guidance counselor and parents should also be made to come-up with better career plan. One of the roles of guidance and counseling is to make it possible for an individual to see and explore his or her unlimited endowed options. It is for this reason that the researcher would like to respond to the problem by conducting a study on the career interest of the grade seven students and the factors that influence it. It is hoped that through this study the researcher can come up with a Career Developmental
Three forces constrain the amount of interaction: the strength A, which refers to biological and real time, age and level of students in its social context while he continues school; forces B and C which present practices of families and schools. The relationship between home and school and in particular the parent-teacher relationship is seen as very important by the researcher. Development and success of the students are at the center of this model. Another factor that appears to have an impact on students’ academic achievements, is the sex. Gender differences in relation to academic achievement are highly debated by scholars in recent decades (Chambers & Schreiber 2004, Eitle 2005).
Academic Achievement refers to the performance of a student in an academic year. It determines the success or failure of an individual in field of education. It can also refer to the performance of a student in a particular subject(5). According to Steinberg and Merriam(1993), "Achievement encompasses student ability and performance; it is multidimensional ; it is intricately related to human growth and cognitive, emotional, social and physical development; it reflects the whole child; it is not related to a single instance but occurs across time and levels, through a student 's life in public school and on into post secondary years and working life." Wester refers academic achievement as "the quality and quantity of a student 's work."
This study has some questions need to be identified: How the principles and core concepts of TQM influence the students’ satisfaction towards student services at PPA COLGIS? What are the demographic characteristics of the students being interacted with the student services at PPA COLGIS? What is the overall satisfaction level of the students towards student services at PPA COLGIS? 1.4 Research Objectives The objectives of this research are as follows: To identify the relationship between the principles and core concepts of TQM and students’ satisfaction towards student services at PPA COLGIS. To determine the demographic characteristics of the students being interacted with the student services at PPA COLGIS.
