    Senior Secondary School Physics Students Disposition to Renovative Stem-Cell Application and its Effect on Achievement in Physics in the Post-Covid-19 Lockdown Period
    (GLOBAL EDUCATION NETWORK (GEN), 2022-10-26) Babajide, V.F.
    The study examines the effect of physics students‟ disposition to Renovative STEM-Cell Application on achievement in physics. Six research questions guided the study and five hypotheses were tested. The design of the study is an expo-facto form of descriptive research design. Physics Achievement Test (PAT) and Physics Students‟ Disposition to Renovative STEM-Cell Application Questionnaire (PSDTRSCAQ) were the two validated instruments used for data collection. The reliability coefficients (0.88 and 0.85) were obtained for the PAT and PSDTRSCAQ, respectively, using KR-20 and ordinal alpha. The data gathered was analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The results show that physics students have positive disposition to the App , dispositions have effect on achievement in physics. Gender has a significant effect on students‟ disposition but gender has no significant effect on the achievement of students in physics. All the indices of the independent variable significantly predict the achievement of students in Physics. Based on the results, the researcher made some recommendations.

    Staggered School calendar and student's performance in physics in education district of Lagos State, Nigeria
    (2021-10-20) Babajide, V.F.; Mautin, A.J.
    The study examined the connection between staggered school calendar and students' performance in Physics in Education District IV of Lagos State, Nigeria. the study adopted a sequential- explanatory mixed method design. A quantitative approach was used for collection of secondary data (WAEC results) while the qualitative approach was used to obtain the opinions of the participants in a Focus Group Discussion on the topic of the study to ascertain the reasons for the trend observed in the physics results in the past five years in the location of study. A total of six SS2 physics students were purposively selected from nine schools each to make up a total sample size of fifty-four (54) students used in the district. Three research questions guided the study and ATLAS.ti version 8 was used to answer the research questions. The results showed that the staggered calendar does not affect students' performance in Physics but affected their study habits and the students preferred face-to-face, regular classes to the staggered calendar. Thus, the researchers suggested that the government can increase the time students spend in school to study, and there can be two sessions per day (morning and afternoon) instead of alternate days.
