GENDER DIFFERENCE AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS IN UGHELLI NORTH LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF DELTA STATE


Abstract

This study was designed to investigate the relationship between gender and academic performance of primary school pupils in Ughelli North Local Government of Delta State.  The main focus of this study was to identify relationships that may exist between gender and each of the reading standards that were assessed (Acquisition of Vocabulary, Reading Process, Informational Text, and Literary Text) on the test. The Achievement Test that was administered to the selected respondents showed that female pupils outperformed their male counterparts at all grade levels  on the test. This study also examined gender differences among students’ overall reading scale scores on the test.   For each standard and overall reading score that was provided, the number of males and females who performed above, at, and below the proficient levels were identified. After running statistical tests, the only standard that showed a significant difference between gender and academic performance was the Informational Text standard.
