Title: STUDENTS’ ATTITUDE AND MANIPULATIVE SKILL DEVELOPMENT THROUGH CHEMISTRY LABORATORY WORKS IN TWO COLLEGES OF EDUCATION
Authors: Dr. Peter Ogbu, Agogo
Issue Date: 13-Jun-2013
Abstract: This study was directed towards the scientific attitude and manipulative skills students develop through laboratory work in the Colleges of Education at Katsina-Ala (State-owned) and Pankshin (Federal government owned). For data collection, Likert scale based teacher and student questionnaires and direct observation of students performing practicals were employed as the main instruments. Chi square statistics was used to test for association between the two schools of the variables under test. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient was used too, before its conversion to t-test for independence samples. The teachers’ questionnaires were expressed in simple percentages. From the analysis, the study found that; there is no significant difference in scientific attitude development by students through chemistry practicals in the two Colleges of Education. (2) There is a significant difference in manipulative skill development by students through chemistry practicals in the two Colleges of Education. (3) There is a significant relationship between students attitude to practical work in chemistry and their manipulative skill development in the two Colleges of Education. These research findings would be of immense value to science educators and curriculum planners to be aware of the great importance of science practical skill development in a professional science teachers’ training programme. The study recommends among others that proprietors should provide functional laboratories for chemistry practicals. This will help develop manipulative skills by the students.
