TEACHERS’ ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT OF AFFECTIVE OUTCOMES IN SOCIAL STUDIES IN SELECTED JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS IN CAPE COAST METROPOLIS

ABSTRACT The purpose, of the study was to find out teachers attitude towards the teaching and assessments of affective outcomes in Social Studies in selected Junior High Schools in the Cape Coast Metropolis. The research design employed was the descriptive survey. Four zones in the Cape Coast metropolitan area namely OLA, Bakano, Abura and Cape Coast out of the eight zones in the metropolis were selected. Each zone is made up of a maximum of ten basic schools. The four zones selected gave a total of forty Social Studies teachers. The sole instrument used was the questionnaire. It consisted of open and close ended questions in consonance with the research questions and the objectives of the study. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistic such as frequencies, means and percentages. Strong evidence emerged that a lot of teachers who taught social studies were qualified teachers but had little knowledge on how to assess the affective outcomes. Based on these shortcomings they resorted to assessing mostly the cognitive outcomes. A few of them also indicated their lack of knowledge of some of the instruments used to assess the affective domain.
