 ABSTRACT
          This study investigated the causes of
ineffective study habit among chemistry students in College of Education,
Ikere-Ekiti, Ekiti State.          A
questionnaire was designed for collecting data. The questionnaire consisted of
nine items which was administered personally by the researcher on seventy-five
students randomly selected. The data collected were analyzed using percentage
scores. The study revealed that parents, government, lecturers and the students
were the factors that contributed to ineffective study habits among chemistry
education student in College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti. Based on the findings,
recommendation was made on how the students can develop good study habits.
 CHAPTER I
INTRODUCTION
Background to the Study
          It has been observed that academic
failure among Chemistry Education students has been on a steady increase in
recent times because the educational system has failed in the past years to
emphasize the effecting study methods students were taught various courses
without being taught about the methods of studying each of the courses.
          Study habits of the Chemistry
Education students is a problematic issue in education because educational
agencies have not made it possible to expose students to study skills most
lecturers, parents and guardians do not make effort to ensure that students
develop good study habits. The common resultant efforts is that most of the
students run into problems, it is however worth knowing that many students feel
bad about examination failure it is a matter of concern to them. They are
usually interested in knowing how to study better because lack of proper study
habits leads to low scores, which may in turn cripple one’s career development success
in academic courses could depends on efficient study habits.
          There are some motivational factors of
the school system which could promote good study habits of students, such
factors are the lecturers, motivation, guidance and counseling services and
functional libraries.
          Some students differ in their study
habits, some study for a long period while other will only have ability to read
for a short period.
          There are students by role memory;
also there are students who rely on listening to the lecturer’s instruction. Again,
there are students who can read during the day while some read only in the
night or early in the morning or at anytime.
          Bruner (2002) suggested that good
study habits increase the leaner’s ability to learn related materials. It
fosters on interest in the activity itself rather than in the ward which follow
from the learning. Good study habit develop ability to approach problem in a
way that will more likely lead to a solution, it makes material that is learned
easier to retrieve.
          Again, Harman (2003) states that good
study habit extends experience and stimulate good method of thinking. It helps
to develop standard of appreciation and taste in the selection of materials. It
develops the necessary good habits for self-development and success in academic
work.
Statement of the Problem
          The review of literature reveals that
study habit is one of the factors responsible for students’ poor performance
          The study therefore seek to determine
the extent to which performance of College of Education Chemistry students
depend on their study habits.
          Also to determine who is more affected
out of male and female
Purpose of the study
          The major purpose of the study is to
investigate study habits and its effects on students’ performance in Chemistry
students.
1.     To find out the extent to which College
of Education Chemistry student do private studies after the school
2.     To find out the strategies to improve
the study of the students
3.     To find out the factors that affect
student’s study habit
Research Questions
          The following research questions were
raised to pilot the study
1.     To what extent do chemistry students do
private studies?
2.     What are the strategies that could
improve students study habit?
3.     What are the factors that affect
student’s study habit?
Research Hypothesis
1.     There is no significant difference in
the performance of chemistry students that do private studies
2.     There should be adequate study skill
which could improve student study habit?
3.     There is no significant relationship in
the factors that affect study habit among chemistry students.
Significance of the study
          Good study habits is the secret behind
better performance of students in their various examinations
1.     This research could therefore result in
bringing out meaningful and common guideline on study method for students’
academic work
2.     The result of the study could draw the
attention of students, parents, schools and government to the needs of good
study habit in College of Education
3.     The investigation could lead to
meaningful suggestions about strategies that students can use to improve their
study habits
4.     The government, parents and student
would be able to estimate the possible contributions of poor study habit to
failure in academic.
Scope of the Study
          This study was restricted only to
study habits of chemistry students in College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, Ekiti
State    .
          This study was therefore restricted to
only chemistry students in all the levels parts.
Definition of Terms
          Some of the terms used in the study
are defined as follows:
1.     Study Habit: This is an act of learning
formed through reputation. A procedure for making learning more effective by
frequent repetition. It is also a process of acquiring skill and knowledge that
becomes nearly involuntary.
2.     Academic performance: This is the
extent to which the students achieve the systematic training and instrument in
the schools. It is also the degree of success in some past learning activities.
3.     Infrastructural facilities: These are
the materials needed for development of good study habits of the student such
as library materials and audio-visual materials.
