Abstract

The study set out to determine the relationship between motivation and academic performance of students of senator Obama Secondary School, in Siaya District

Kenya. A number of schools were motivating their teachers and students to stimulate the performance in national examinations. Despite this, the performance of some schools in national examination were extremely very poor.

The research questions were on the characteristic! personal information of the teachers, subjects taught and grade attained. The school previous performance , types

of motivation offered by the school management , and suggestions on how to enhance motivation in schools.

Data for the study was obtained through structured interview , questionnaires and observations were used to gather information and how they influenced performance

in the school. A sample population of 10 teachers and 80 students were investigated .The survey led to certain conclusions; first , teachers experience in teaching and long stay in the school was a strong factor for the teacher to enable them to perform well I their

work.

There were still no quality passes at national examination with most of the students obtaining B plain. This could not enable the students to pursue quality courses at the university or a middle level college. Subjects in which students obtained high! better grades were taught by experienced teachers and to some extent these teachers

had a kind of motivation for good performance. So in away motivation contributed to good performance to some extent percentage.

There was little government participation in the motivation of teachers. The bulk work of motivating the teachers were left to parents who were already over burden

by school fees. Since they started appreciating the effort of teachers and students by motivating

them the school mean grade improved progressively. This means that motivation contributed to good performance.

Based on foregoing conclusion certain recommendations were presented. First. the government through the ministry of education should take an active part in teachers, through the provision of staff houses. This would enable the teacher to participate fully in his work without the worry of traveling home. Teachers Service

Commission (T. S.C) should develop a scheme of promotion on value added. This would make teachers to be sure of what they expect when they perform well In

their job and a teacher joining the school should properly be oriented on motivation policy. This would make the teacher to adopt well to the school system. Lastly cash

award has an immediate impact on the teachers than any form of incentives. It should therefore be considered as most popular type of motivation among teachers.
