Assessing the Interpreting Skills of Biology Students in Selected Senior High Schools in Ghana

Emmanuel Eshun | Charles Agyei Amoah [6]

Abstract: The study is on assessing the interpreting skills of biology students in selected senior high schools in Ghana. The sample consisted of 114 students from both single sex and mixed Senior High Schools (SHS) offering elective biology for the West African Secondary School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE). Simple random sampling was used to select the schools which participated in the study. One single-sex girls school, one single-sex boys school and one mixed school were selected. The research question was answered using Kruskal-Wallis test. The results indicated that the type of school a student attends (single-sex girls, single-sex boys and mixed) school was found not to be significantly related to the performance of the students at interpreting skills. However, greater proportion of students in single-sex girls school scored higher in interpreting than their counterparts in single-sex boys and mixed schools.
