The performance of science in national exams has been deteriorating over
last few years. This is so in majority of primary schools in Kenya and
especially Yatta district. The situation may not be different in other districts
Kenya. The problem is therefore global concern given that most of the
technology is statistical based with a science orientation. Science being a
branch of science that deals with precision and quantitative applications is
widely appreciated in many fields. These include agriculture, accounting,
veterinary practice, public health, and medicines just no mention a few.
The poor performance of science in exams may therefore mean a definite
downfall in our technology fields and the collapse of the entire Kanyan
economy. This poor performance may be as result of poor motivating, lack of
evaluation, physical facilities and to a large extent a negative attitude of
students towards the subject. The purpose of this study was to determine
factors that affect the performance of mathematics in national exams in
some selected primary schools in Masinga division of Yatta district. The
study was also used to identify some measures that might be used to predict
the performance of primary school pupils studying science.
The sample in the study consisted of 50 pupils from one up to form eight, 10
science teachers and 5 head teachers. The data collection methodology
involved questionnaire and observation of all the targeted groups. The
information collected will hopefully be used to improve performance in
science in examinations.
