COMPARING STUDENTS’ PERFORMANCE IN EXAMINATIONS AT THE ST. JOSEPH SENIOR HIGH SECONDARY/TECHNICAL SCHOOL

ABSTRACT

My motivation to embark on this project work was triggered by the academic performance of the students in St. Joseph Senior High Secondary/Technical. The main objectives of this study were to compare the performance of male and female students, use principal components to determine indices for ranking the students in descending order. The Data used in the analysis were sourced from the students’ of St. Joseph Senior High Secondary/Technical third term terminal examination results. Hotelling’s T-squared test and Principal Component Analysis were the main statistical tools used in the study. The test revealed that the males outperformed the females in the examination. The first principal component of the unrotated component matrix, was found to be the most suitable index that was used to determine the performance of students by ranking.
