Abstract - Many practical studies are carried out to investigate factors affecting college students’ performance. The focus of this research is that student performance in intermediate examination is linked with . attainment attest to the fact that there is significant relationship between school based factors and students’ performance (Mayama, ; Lumuli, ). Several researchers have identified factors that contribute to quality of education in schools. These factors are classified under; school based factors .

1. Introduction. In developing country contexts research shows that children from poorer backgrounds are disadvantaged concerning their development, learning and attaining potential (Bradley and Corwyn, , Kamper and Mampuru, , Kamper, , Powers, , Zorn and Noga, ).Kay () suggests that ‘children are simply much more likely to achieve success if they come from a certain. In addition, parents' education is a powerful predictor of their children's educational attainment (Haveman, ). This is more the case for mothers' education. Mothers with a higher level of education instill the importance of ~ducation in their children. Although fathers' .

Sources; it is nonetheless critical to consider the influence of the classroom. The literature tends to focus upon the disadvantage experienced by girls in the mathematics classroom, but this serves to illuminate mathematics education for boys also. Drawing upon research (Gilligan, ; Belenky et al., ) in developmental psychology.

For this study, the following factors were selected for investigation: the extent to which schools were equipped with mathematics facilities, the type of the school that is whether mixed or girls' only, career aspirations, previous achievement in KCPE mathematics, instructional techniques used by the teachers and girls' attitudes towards.

mathematics was not influence d by gender. The second finding of this study supports [10] Faridah () who suggests that patience towards problem solving is essen tial to achieve good results in.

The review of related literature focused on factors that affect students’ academic achievement. It mainly discussed both in-school and out- school factors that affect female students’ mathematics achievement.

Hence the in school factors such as influence of school facilities, instructional leadership. These are poverty, parent’s attitude, parent’s education, culture and tradition, long distance to school, lack of school facilities, and absence of teachers.

Poverty is the major factor that negatively affects girl’s secondary education. Most of the families in File Size: KB. This Book is brought to you by ACEReSearch. It has been accepted for inclusion in TIMSS Australia Monograph Series by an authorized administrator of ACEReSearch.

Girls’ Achievement in Mathematics at Key Stage 2 Background to study Underachievement in girls at Key Stage 2 is a national trend, developing particularly in Years 5 and 6.

Each year, more boys achieve level 4+ than girls in statutory tests, while a higher percentage of boys. In recent years, concerns about boys and reading have taken some attention away from girls and math, as girls have higher reading achievement than boys in early elementary school.

However, it is important to consider that research shows that reading gender gaps narrow during the elementary grades, whereas gender gaps in math grow during early elementary school.

Identifying factors that affect Mathematics Achievement is important to effectively educate students. Parents’ educational attainment was found to be a significant factor in achievement of students in mathematics (Coleman, ; Campbell, ; Mangaliman, ).

and the perceived factors that affect the mathematics achievement. Boys and girls are equally affected by stuttering. Girls are more likely to stutter than boys.

Boys are more likely to stutter than girls.

The study was guided by the following objectives; to establish school factors which contribute to pupils dropping out of school, to assess the influence of parent‟s education level on pupils dropout and to investigate which group between boy and girl pupils are more dropout than the sample consisted of six primary.

Factors Contributing To Students’ Poor Performance in Mathematics at Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education in Kenya: A Case of Baringo County, Kenya Zachariah Kariuki Mbugua Komen Kibet George Mungiria Muthaa George Reche Nkonke Chuka University College, Kenya Abstract Performance in Mathematics by students has persistently been poor.

The study sought to explore factors that contribute towards effective teaching and learning in primary schools.

The study was prompted by high failure rate of pupils at grade seven level which recorded zero percent pass rate since The researchers were prompted to investigate why there is such decay in schools in Zimbabwe.

wasting among girls, more reading hours for boys, inadequate facilities, teachers, dissatisfaction and lack of motivation in girls, irregular attendance to school by girls, low persistence and their inferiority complex, were the factors for observed gender differences in the selected school in Kiambu division.

Based on the findings. The SES factors of parental occupation, parental education and ESCS had significant effects on reading, mathematics and science attainment at the individual and school level.

The higher the parents’ occupation and education status, the higher a pupil's PISA attainment in reading, mathematics and science.Few classes bring students more stress than math courses.

While difficulty with math may be a matter of talent, many factors can affect a student's performance in a math course. Teacher, parents and students should understand how a poor grade may reflect something beyond a lackluster effort.which are: participation, attainment, key factors and intervention.
