Impact Assessment of LESEP on Senior Secondary Schools Students’ Academic Performance in Lagos State: ATO Model as Framework
The intervention of Lagos Eko Secondary Education Project (LESEP) was a welcome development to ameliorate students’ poor academic performance. This study conducted an impact assessment of LESEP on senior secondary school students’ Academic Performance in Lagos state. The study used the Antecedent, Transaction, and Outcome (ATO) evaluation model as a framework. The study adopted a survey research design ex post facto. The sample consists of students with WASSCE results between 2006 and 2020 (143,725 students). Proportionate and purposive sampling technique was used to arrive at the sample. The study used students’ performance profile forms (Mathematics, English, and Biology) for data collection. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive frequency distribution, percentages, and mean scores. The result showed that students’ performance prior to the intervention was poor because, between 2006- 2008, the majority of the students had f9 in the three subjects (Mathematics, English, and Biology). But it showed improvement in students’ performance between 2009 -2016. The result further showed that students’ performance improved after the completion of the program compared with the results obtained before and during the implementation stage of the program. The study concluded that LESEP has made a significant impact on the student’s academic performance in WASSCE during and after implementation. It is recommended that the training should not be limited to English Language, Mathematics, and Biology teachers alone but should also be extended to other subject areas.
