The nutritional lifestyle examined include the difference in proteins, calories, vitamins and minerals consumption by the rural and urban people of Kaduna state, Nigeria. It also examined their attitude towards the consumption of natural and refined food products. Descriptive research design was adopted for the study. The population consisted of all individual age 16 years and above living in both rural and urban areas of Kaduna state, Nigeria as at the time of the study. Stratified and cluster random sampling techniques were used to select samples for the study. A total of 1350 randomly selected samples were used for the study. A structured questionnaire, developed and pilot tested with a reliability analysis scale of 0.92r was used for the study. The data collected were statistically analyzed using t-test. All the hypothesis generated were subjected to statistical analysis. The result showed that significant difference exists in the calories, natural and refined food products consumed by rural and urban people of Kaduna state, Nigeria. It also reveals that rural and urban people of Kaduna state, Nigeria are not significantly different in their nutritional lifestyle.

  This study examined the instructional computer technology with its implications for gender achievement in Nigeria. The setting was in Graphcom Independent Educational Computer Laboratory, Ilorin in Nigeria. The participants were randomly selected Junior Secondary School (JSS) III students in Ilorin West local government area of Kwara State for a holiday computer technology instruction. A total of 30 students (15 boys and 15 girls), aged 15 and 16 years old, participated in this study. Scores from a pretest and posttest of male and female students were compared using Paired Sample t-test with repeated measures and gender as the factor. Analysis of data showed that there were gender differences in computer technology achievement. The findings were statistically significant. The results confirmed earlier findings and added to knowledge about gender differences and achievement in computer technology.

  In this study, the significant difference in the post-test performance scores of students in 3-dimensional animation (3-D) production using manual animation technique for control group and computer animation for the experimental group were investigated. The researcher examined the quality of students’ animation productions based on the design variables (spatial, dynamics, design, transition and sound attributes) with extrinsic variables (instructional approaches and animation production tasks). The sample consisted of forty undergraduate students drawn from a Nigerian University. A researcher designed 3-Dimensional Animation Production Skill Test (APST), was administered to the students as a pre-test. The experimental group (consisting of 20 students) was taught using computer animation techniques, while the control group (consisting of 20 students) was taught using manual animation techniques. After the treatment, the APST was re-administered as a post-test. Three research questions stated were analysed using the t-test at 0.05 significance level. Findings from the research questions indicated that students who were exposed to computer animation instruction performed better than their counterparts exposed to manual animation instruction. Based on the findings, recommendations were made on the need to improve the quality of instructional material preparations in educational technology setting.

  The study was designed to evaluate contributions of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to the prevalence of obesity and elevated blood pressure among students in Ogbomoso Girls' High School, Ogbomoso, Oyo State, Nigeria. Sample population of 120 female's students aged 11-22 years were randomly selected from the school for the study. Skin fold measures at triceps, thigh and supra-iliac of the subjects were taken at the right side of the body. Percentage Body Fat (PBF) of the subjects was calculated from the values derived from body density (P.B.F. 570/DB-4.142)x100. Structured questionnaire was used to collect data from the subjects on their eaten pattern and activity level. Results showed that, the subjects had high percentage body fat, high percentage body mass index and high systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Results also indicated insignificant relationship between eaten pattern and percentage body fat, while there were indication of significant relationship between systolic and diastolic blood pressure and activity level of the subjects. Increased physical exercises were a strategy postulated for preventing and managing obesity and elevated blood pressure.

  This study examined some of the challenges posed to the authentic assessment and measurement procedures as a policy tool in the Nigerian education system, particularly, the acceptability and universality of common assessment of secondary school students. Considering fit diversified educational backgrounds of these students, it appears that our current educational assessment processes do not tally with, the practicability of the test end results. It was therefore, suggested that educational performance in common assessment measures should be based on the principles of crude grasp of the whole. Only in this would our pluralistic complex, society be recognized.

  This study presents the report of an educational and nutritional initiative undertaken to prevent and control HIV/AIDS infection among inhabitants of a rural community in Kwara State, Nigeria. The goals of the initiative were to obtain base-line information relating to the inhabitants’ HIV/AIDS knowledge and feeding practices and to boost participants’ HIV/AIDS and nutritional knowledge and practices. In order to achieve the objectives of the initiative, survey, interview and focus group discussion procedures were employed to elicit data from 165 purposively selected male and female students and parents (comprising 67 students and 98 parents) in Oloru village, Nigeria. A 79-item Questionnaire was used to elicit data on respondents’ HIV/AIDS and nutritional knowledge, food choices and feeding practices. A 33-slide power point HIV/AIDS lecture on six major aspects of HIV/AIDS was presented to boost participants’ HIV/AIDS knowledge while, nutritional education and food preparation demonstration were undertaken to modify their nutritional knowledge and feeding practices. Findings of the study showed, among others, that more students than parents demonstrated adequate knowledge of HIV/AIDS education but <50% of either group appeared to have good HIV/AIDS knowledge although, local availability of classes of food was reported only carbohydrate meals were typically eaten in the community. Based on the findings, integration of HIV/AIDS, Sexuality and Life Skills education into the secondary school curriculum and more aggressive promotion of public enlightenment programmes through appropriate HIV/AIDS and nutritional education were considered critical to HIV/AIDS prevention in rural communities.

  The thrust of the study was to assess the effects of teacher effectiveness on students, achievement in Mathematics. Results of ANOVA revealed that apart from teachers' qualification, there were significant differences in all the variables of teacher effectiveness considered in the research. Furthermore, the results of multiple regression analysis showed clearly that the subjective independent variables predicted considerably the objective measures of students' achievement in Mathematics. It was therefore, suggested that the present secondary school students' poor achievement in Mathematics could be improved if only qualified and experienced teachers handle Mathematics at the senior secondary school level but such teachers need be adequately provided with relevant instructional facilities.
