HEADTEACHERS’ AND INSTITUTIONAL FACTORS INFLUENCING STUDENTS’ PERFORMANCE IN KENYA CERTIFICATE OF SECONDARY EDUCATION IN PUBLIC SECONDARY SCHOOLS IN NYAMIRA DISTRICT, KENYA

PDF version

Despite the measures and efforts put in place to enhance good academic results, gaps
have been identified; student’s performance in KCSE in Nyamira District is still
wanting. This poor performance diminishes students’ opportunity for future job
placement and at the same time reduces their chances of meaningful participation in
national development. It is in the light of this background that the researcher intends
to identify the headteachers and institutional factors that may be influencing the
performance in the district. The study sought to achieve five objectives which
centered on selected institutional factors in relation to KCSE performance. The
objectives were: to establish the influence of provision of teaching and learning
resources on students’ performance in KCSE in Nyamira District. To assess the
influence of teachers’ characteristics on students’ performance in KCSE in Nyamira
District. To determine the influence of the headteachers’ supervision in teaching and
learning process on students’ performance in KCSE in Nyamira District. To establish
whether physical facilities have any influence on students’ performance in KCSE in
Nyamira District and to examine the influence of appropriate student personnel
services on students’ performance in KCSE in Nyamira District.
