Abstract


This study determined the effects of teachers’ classroom effectiveness on student’s academic performance in public secondary schools in Delta State, Nigeria. The design was descriptive in nature and it involved 300 teachers, Academic performance records of 50 students per teacher, which is 1690 students’ scores were also used. Questionnaires and rating scale were used to collect data for the study. Three hypotheses were tested at the 0.05 level of significance using correlation, t-test, and single factor analysis of variance. The results showed that effective teachers produced better performing students. However, the observed differences in students’ performance were statistically not significant. This could be due to the influence of student and school environment related factors which were not included in this study. It was concluded that teachers’ effectiveness is not the only determinant of students’ academic achievement.
