ABSTRACT This research was about instructional materials and learners

academic performance in selected primary schools of Ruteete Sub

County, Kabarole district. The area of the study was Ruteete Sub

County. The schools under this study were Kasiisi, Kigarama, Kiko,

Kyanyawara and Gweri primary schools. The study subjects

included primary seven pupils, teachers and Head teachers. The

research hypothesis sought to establish the relationship between

instructional material and learner's academic performance. The

study revealed that there is a great attachment of instructional aids

on performance. The availability and adequacy of instructional aids

was uncertain and the image depicted indicate that a good number

of schools have fewer instructional aids compared to the number of

pupils in schools. The appropriate use of the available instructional

aids was ascertained with doubts since teachers showed less

eagerness to use the few resources that could not cater for the large

size of the classes. It thus implied that teachers use self centered

methods and ignored learner centered ones. This state impend

learning and leads to poor performance. This perhaps explains why

the performance of primary seven pupils in Ruteete Sub County is

poor. The research concluded that performance in Ruteete need

improvement through the following strategies like schools

administration should buy relevant and adequate instructional

materials/aids to facilitate effective teaching. Teachers should use

the available instructional aids that allow variations in the teaching

methods which promote better understanding of what is taught

together with good performance.
