INTRODUCTORY LETTER

QUESTIONNAIRES

ABSTRACT In summary my research was investigating how social economic factors, positively or negatively affect academic performance. The research was carried out in Makueni District Kenya between the month of January ( 2007) to March 2007. My respondents were form four students of St. Annes Kiboko secondary school. Other researchers have also researched on relationship between social economic factors and academic performance. This is what made me to decide to find out whether this was true by carrying out study in St. Annes Kiboko secondary school. I used direct observation method and questionnaires to collect my data. In statistical treatment of data, I used frequency tables, percentages and bar graphs in my data presentation. From statistical treatment of data and presentation, it is clear that economic status of parents affect their students academic performance. Family class also affect academic performance as shown on the graph under presentation of findings.
