The Impacts of Senior Secondary Schools? Quality and the Content Validity of Their Geography Tests Items

MICHAEL Happy Linda, IYEKEKPOLOR Solomon

The study was aimed at investigating the relationship between school quality and the content validity of their Geography tests items. The study adopted causal comparative descriptive research design. Two research questions and two null hypotheses guided the study. A total of 120 Geography teachers were purposively selected for the study. The data was collected through a validated checklist and questionnaire which gave a reliable index of 0.73. Data was analyzed using mean, standard deviation, chi-square and independent student z- test. The results revealed that the quality of a school has a significant impact on the content validity of Geography tests items. Similarly, the content validity of Geography tests items in private secondary schools was higher than that of public secondary schools. Based on these finding, it was recommended that the quality of teaching and learning in public secondary schools should be improved by the provision of teaching materials, supervision of teaching and assessment procedures in schools and moderations of test items by experts in measurement and evaluation.
