ABSTRACT

The study examined gender differences in the academic performance of

Financial Accounting students in selected senior high schools in the Central

Region of Ghana. Descriptive survey design was employed to carry out the study.

The simple random sampling and census techniques were used to select 331

students and 137 teachers of Financial Accounting respectively. Questionnaires

were the instrument used in collecting the data. The data was analysed using

descriptive statistics (means, standard deviation, percentages and frequencies),

inferential statistics (t-test) and thematic approach. The study found that there are

gender differences in students’ performance in Financial Accounting. Thus, the

difference in the mean scores of male students and that of female students in

Financial Accounting also implied that there are gender differences in students’

performance. The study also revealed that male students studying Financial

Accounting perform better than female students. The mean of means score of both

the teachers and the students indicated that male students perform better than

female students in Financial Accounting.

It is recommended that the Ministry of Education, policy makers, school

principals and other stakeholders of education should advise Accounting teachers

to motivate the female students to have positive attitude and perception about

Financial Accounting. Again, the study recommended that teachers of Financial

Accounting should be abreast of current pedagogical content orientation of the

subject in order to teach to the level of each student in the class.
