ABSTRACT

This study was carried out to investigate the Factors affecting students’ academic performance in Shorthand in College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti.  In order to achieve this, five (5) specific objectives were raised among which are: investigating the performance of students studying shorthand in College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, determining and finding out the factors affecting student’s academic performance in Shorthand.  As a guide for the researcher, five (5) research questions were used, survey research design was also used for the study.  The population of the study consisted of seventy-one (71) students in part III of Office Technology Management (OTM) in College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti.  From the population, fifty (50) students were sampled using proportional random sampling technique.  Questionnaire was used as the instrument for collecting data from the respondents.  The data collected were then analyzed using frequency and percentage.  The study found out among others that; lack of students’ interest, teacher’s incompetency, misinterpretation of words are the major factors affecting students’ academic performance in shorthand.  Based on the findings, it was concluded that poor enrolment of students in Shorthand will lead to disengagement of shorthand teachers.  In view of the findings and conclusion, it was recommended among others that; there is need for Shorthand students to be committed, serious and should not entertain any fear so as to improve their performance in Shorthand.  It was also recommended that students of shorthand should have adequate interest in shorthand, memorize the principles of shorthand and should daily and constantly practice Shorthand in order to overcome the factors affecting students’ academic performance discussed in this study.
