ABSTRACT

The knowledge of English is of great practical aspect in the scientific and

technological fields. English is widely recognized as an important qualification for

employment and further studies. It provides a unique type of experience in

problem solving which is an essential component of a complete education.

Though English is important, many pupils in schools continue to perform poorly in

the subject especially in internal and end term examinations. This is also the

case in Soi Zone, Mogotio Division in Koibatek District. Schools put more

emphasis on the cognitive aspects of Learning the subject for passing

examinations and certifications while the effective aspects of Learning are not

examined are seen as being of little value.

The purpose of this study was to examine and analyze the factors contributing to

poor performance in English amongst learners in an inclusive classroom in Soi

Zone, Koibatek District. A sample of class five in five schools and their teachers,

headteachers and parents responded to questionnaire that measured pupils'

English poor performance. The questionnaire was validated and found to be

reliable. The results of the study showed that there are factors which contribute

to poor performances and include poor teaching methods, negative attitudes

amongst pupils and teachers, large class enrolment and inadequate teaching

and learning materials.

The findings of this study are expected to be useful to the English teachers,

pupils, teacher trainers and counselors in understanding and improving Learners'

English performances through timely interventions. They are also important as a basis for future research.
