Impediments to Effective Improvisation of Instructional Materials for Teaching Electrical Installation Works In Ebonyi State Technical Colleges (Published)

This study investigated the impediments to effective improvisation of instructional materials for teaching Electrical Installation Works (EIW) in Ebonyi State Technical Colleges. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. Survey research design was adopted for the study with a population of 192. Sampling was not carried out because the population was manageable. Thirty item structured questionnaire was the instrument used for data collection. Three experts established the face validity of the instrument while 0.95 was its reliability coefficient obtained through test-re-test method with Pearson Product Moment Correlation to ensure its measures of stability. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while students t-test statistic was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed thirteen critical impediments resulting from EIW teachers’ characteristics and seventeen critical impediments due to environmental and situation forces surrounding EIW programme implementation. It was then recommended that Ebonyi State Government should ameliorate these impediments urgently to forestall their consequences.

THE EFFECTIVENESS OF INTERACTIVE MULTIMEDIA COURSEWARE AS INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIUM FOR TEACHING (Published)

This study looked at the comparative analysis of the performance of pupils who were taught multiplication of fractions using interactive multimedia courseware and those who were taught using the traditional teaching model. Visual Basic.Net, Captivate and TechSmith Camtasia Studio v5.0.2 were used to develop the interactive multimedia courseware on multiplication of fractions. The research instrument was in the form of a teacher made test and questionnaire. The test consisted of pre-test and a post-test where the test items difficulty were paralleled. The simple random sampling method was used to select 72 primary five pupils (36 pupils each from the two primary five classes). Frequency, percentages, Chi-square and t-test were used for the Data analysis. The results showed that there was no significant difference in the performance of the experimental group and the control group, but there was significant difference in pupil’s interest in multiplication of fractions in the experimental group and the control group.
