COMPARATIVE STUDY OF COGNITIVE ACHIEVEMENT IN CHEMISTRY AND AFFECTIVE ATTITUDE OF SENIOR SECONDARY TWO CHEMISTRY STUDENTS IN SOKOTO METROPOLIS

ABSTRACT
The main purpose of this research study is to investigate and compare and cognitive achievement in chemistry and affective attitude of senior secondary II chemistry student in Sokoto metropolis. The data collected for this study were from some selected secondary schools in Sokoto metropolis. A purposive sampling techniques were adopted in selecting sample size in the population. The data generated were analyzed using tables, descriptive statistics, frequency and simple percentage were used in comparing the various result obtained.

The outcome of this study shows that there is a positive attitude toward learning chemistry and attitude is function of achievement. Recommendations were made based on the outcome of this study.

INTRODUCTION
1.1        BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Chemistry is one of the important science subject taught at the senior secondary school
(SSS)     level, performance will only be determined along with individual perception. Nowadays, students do not like most of science subject especially Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics and this lead to their poor performance in science subject. Sokoto metropolis covers Sokoto north and Sokoto south, Sokoto metropolis is one of the earliest town that embrace Islam under Usmanu Danfodiyo caliphate with well Islamic orientation, due to the coming of western education, many secondary school were established within Sokoto metropolis. The influence of these schools was so fell that

many parents don’t want to take their child to school. The new national policy on education,( 2004) aims and objective stipulated that science education for secondary school, by directing that secondary school system be structured in such away as to diversify the curriculum to cater for the difference in talent, opportunity and roles posses by or open to student after their secondary school carrier.

In recent years, there has been a growing concern over the development of positive attitude toward science in student effective science teaching at public. The concept of attitude has been of great interest to psychologist and educators alike and educational development have endorsed of the needed for the formation of favorable altitude for learning by student. It is interesting to noted that people prefer the literacy subject and are reluctance to elect for practical courses, biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics if and when they offer.

‘Achievement of various cognitive aspect of intellect’. It is observable achievement from which it is in feed that an individual is exercising one of the intellectual component of knowing such as perceiving, remembering Judging and reasoning’....
