ABSTRACT

This study examined the study strategies and achievement goals of sandwich students in University of Ilorin. The study found out the achievement goals held by sandwich students; study strategies adopted by sandwich students; the relationship between achievement goal and study strategies of sandwich students and determined if the study strategies of sandwich students in University of Ilorin depends on gender. This study employed descriptive survey research design. The population of the study consists of all students of the University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Nigeria. A simple random sampling method was used to select 100 students across all the departments. A researcher’s designed questionnaire was used to elicit information on students’ study strategies and achievement goals. Descriptive statistics of percentage t-test and Pearson Product Moment Correlation (PPMC) were used for data analysis. Findings from the study revealed that the level of study strategy of sandwich students in University of Ilorin was low on majority; the level of achievement goal students in University of Ilorin was high on majority; there was significant relationship between study strategies and achievement goal of sandwich students in University of Ilorin; there was no is no significant difference in the achievement goal and study strategies of sandwich students in University of Ilorin based on gender. It was therefore recommended that the sandwich students should be orientated on the need to adopt study strategies that will assist them in their academic pursuit; students should be sensitized on the importance of achievement goals and the need to set realistic ones; the sandwich students should be orientated on the need to adopt study strategies that will commensurate with the kind of achievement goals ahead of them; and students, irrespective of gender, should be exposed to the kinds of instructional methods that will assist them in achieving their goals.
