ABSTRACT

The purpose of the study was to examine the relationship among teacherstudent

interaction, motivation and academic performance, of JHS students in

the Bibiani – Anhwiaso – Bekwai District in the Western Region of Ghana.

The design used in this study was the correlational design. The simple random

sampling procedure was used to select 155 teachers and 281 students for the

study. Four research questions guided the study. A 48-item teacher and

students’ questionnaires respectively were used for teachers and students’ data

collection. The statistical tools used for the analysis of data included frequency

distributions, means and percentages. Inferential statistics, notably, the

Pearson moment correlation coefficient and the independent sample t-test

were also used for the data analysis. The results of the study showed that,

there was a statistically significant relationship between teacher-student

interaction and students’ motivation. It was also found that teacher-student

interaction correlated with students’ academic performance. Teachers helped

students with academic difficulties. Again, it was found out that there was a

statistically significant relationship between students’ motivation and

academic performance. However, the study showed no statistically significant

difference between male and female students in terms of motivation and

academic performance. It is therefore, recommended that the Ghana Education

service (GES) and Ministry of Education should make it mandatory for

counsellors to organize motivational talks for students on regular basis from

the Basic School to Senior High Schools. Additionally, School counsellors

and teachers should be motivated and supported by the government in order to

have a healthy relationship with students.
