- ItemOpen AccessQuality Assurance: Perceptions of Continuous Assessment Practice at the Undergraduate Level of some Nigerian Universities. Quality Assurance Mechanism in Nigerian Education.(Nigerian Academy of Education, 2012) Ilogu, G.C; Oke, C.O; Alade, O.M; Bakare, T.VAssessment is an aspect of quality assurance in Education. Assessment is a burning issue in many countries including Nigeria. This is because its use for placement of students, diagnosis of learning problems and certification. The Nigerian government in the National Policy on Education stipulates that the main mode of assessment at every level of education should be by Continuous Assessment (CA) and this has since been complied with by every institution of learning in the country. Observations show that CA practice is open to series of abuses, hence it is being closely monitored at the Primary and Secondary schools’ levels of education but this cannot be said of the tertiary level of education. Undoubtedly, the need to closely monitor CA practice in tertiary institutions, particularly in universities, cannot be ignored because of the major function of certifying the specially trained personnel for the society in her various areas of need. Perception is a construct known to affect what a person sees, how it is seen and how the person reacts to situations and things generally. The study looked at the perceptions of CA practice at the undergraduate level in Nigerian universities. Four research questions guided the study while the sample comprised 92 lecturers and 921 undergraduates. Ten universities (Federal and State) in Nigeria were used for the study. The survey research design was adopted for this purpose. The instruments used for data collection were Undergraduates Questionnaire for Continuous Assessment Practice in the Universities, and Lecturers’ Questionnaire for Continuous Assessment Practice in the Universities. Data collected were analyze using descriptive statistics. The result, among others, indicated a trend of negative perceptions of CA practice by Lecturers and students alike but in varying degrees. The implications of the findings for quality assurance in education were highlighted.
- ItemOpen AccessUnsustainable Environment: Managing Waste in the University of Lagos(University of Lagos: Unilag Golden Jubilee Research Conference and Fair, 2012-11-06) Bakare, T.V.Management of waste is vital to environmental sustainability, which is a key goal of the MDG. This experimental research examined solid waster management in the university system and designed a bottle-shaped dust-bin to encourage sorting of waste into appropriate containers in order to ascertain the level of the university residential community’s adherence to the 3Rs (reuse, reduce, recycle). The experiment was accompanied by a sensitization campaign. The research raised four questions and used a combination of qualitative and quantitative techniques to gather information from the residents of the staff living quarters of the university. A careful examination of measurement of the contents of the bins revealed that there was a 75% increase in the adherence rate after the campaign. The various challenges were also noted and it was emphasized that the university system must re-examine its role in leading-by-example, especially as the university celebrates its 50th anniversary. If we fail to respect the environment, we cannot do much in terms of sending the right message to the communities. It is hoped that if the idea of the bottle-shaped bin is patented, it can be useful in encouraging proper sorting of garbage as even illiterates will understand the concept of what the bottle stands for. The study finally proposes a model for environmental sustainability within the university environment and later in the society at large.
