CHAPTER ONEINTRODUCTION

1.1       Background to the Study

In the classroom, three elements stand out which are; the teacher, the learner and the instructional materials. These elements interact among themselves using appropriate methods to convey the content (lesson) which constitute the aim of education which will be evaluated. The interactions can be influenced by so many factors including the elements themselves (Obot, 2005). At present, education is under constant changing and multiplicity in policies, methods and procedure which can be clearly observed at different levels of education system. Change is always welcomed as per required but change should always be in harmony with certain aspects namely; society, religion, state etc.

However, the present situation calls for comprehensive change in almost every level of education so that practical and dynamic approach can be given to existing and new field of education. The crux of this modern education is to awaken the hidden curiosity and interest of the learner, nourishing his behaviours, attitudes and believes in order to develop basic and essential skills of lifelong learning and ability to think critically and to judge himself and others in a more beneficial manner.

Audio-Visual Materials And Academic Performance of Students

Audio-visual materials are instructional materials which have both sound and visual components at the same time (Prada, 2005). The use of audio-visual aids is preferred as they are considered as 80% of the whole teaching and learning (Jadal, 2011). They keep the individual learner focus on what is being taught by the teacher in the classroom session. Audio-visual aids make a lesson or a lecture more interesting and a memorable experience not only for students but for teachers as well. They play a vibrant role in focusing the attention of individual student towards the teacher or the topic.

Human beings have five senses which are the doorway for effective learning especially seeing, hearing and touching which bring maximum knowledge for the individual. Jerome Brune a Psychologist at New York university advocates, research has show that people remember 100% of what they hear, 20% of what they read and 80% of what they see and do (Lester, 2012).

Audio-Visual Materials And Academic Performance of Students

Indeed, audio-visual aids are most effective tools for developing flawless communication and interaction between students and contents as well as students and teachers. These aids not only help to save the time of teacher but also help in developing and arousing curiosity, creativity and motivation. They emphasize on the comprehension of knowledge and concept as well as keep working on developing sound foundations for higher and further studies, especially in Biology. It is therefore hoped that at the end of this research work the researcher will be able to assess the influence of audio-visual aids on academic performance of Biology students in secondary schools.

Audio-Visual Materials And Academic Performance of Students

The study was designed to investigate the influence of Audio-Visual Materials and academic Performance of students in Biology.  T-test was used for the analysis of the results.
