Teaching Resources Utilization and Academic Performance in Technical Colleges in Oyo State, Nigeria.

Okemakinde, Timothy; Adedeji, Segun O.; Ssempebwa, Jude

Abstract:
Over the last two decades, the debate on technical education has centered on such issues as access to, the quality of, funding of and benefits of technical education. Hitherto, however, questions relating to the factors accounting for the differences in the resources allocated to them; and relationship between, on one hand, the availability and utilization of resources and academic performance in technical colleges in Oyo State, Nigeria, on the other, have remained unanswered. Thus, this study was conducted to examine the variations in the resources allocated to the colleges; and the relationship between the availability and utilization of resources and academic performance in the colleges. Data were collected using documentary analysis, questionnaire and observation. Analysis of variance in the resources allocated to the colleges indicated that there were variations in the resources allocated to the colleges. However, the study indicated that, these variations notwithstanding, all the colleges studied were under-facilitated. On the other hand, Pearson Product Moment Correlation and regression analysis indicated that there is relationship between the availability and utilization of resources and academic performance in the colleges, adding that increasing the resources availed to the colleges by 100% would enhance academic performance by 28%. It was, therefore, recommended that emphasis is put on, both, the acquisition and optimal utilization of resources.
