COMPARISM OF THE JUNIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL STUDENT ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN TECHNICAL EDUCATION – 2004-2008 IN ENUGU SOUTH LOCAL GOVERMENT AREA,ENUGU STATE.
This study compared the performance of junior secondary school student in computer integrated science from 2004 to 2008 in other to carry out this study effectively two research question were asked and answer. Student’s raw scores of performances in integrated science and computer science were collect from (2) school (one male and one female) school south local government area. Data obtained were analysed using mean scores indicated that student of integrated science perform better than computer science students in 2004, 2005, 2006,2007 and 2008 respectively.

Background of the study
A well developed scientific and technological base is conditional to any national human and material development. Nigeria is classed as a developing nation and has continued to make a breakthrough by emphasizing much on science and technological in junior and senior secondary schools. The federal ministry of science technology (1986:7) stated that through the application of science and technology, the resources of nature have transformed into good and services for better quality of life. To support this assertion. Awokoye (1979) maintained that people are living in the world where science and technology has become integral part of the world culture and any country that overlooks this fact does so at risk remaining backwardness in science and technology.
Also okeke (2005) stated that technological progress depends on the implementation of science education. It is on the light of this that Nigeria has begun to lay more and more emphasis on science education. Therefore, integrated science was introduced in junior secondary school earlier before the introduction computer science. The implementation of integrated science and computer science in junior secondary schools took off with numerous problems. The most worrisome is lack of teachers in the subject. It is still on group and have persisted for some year now. It is therefore pertinent to check the journey so far by comparing the academic achievement of JSS integrated science and computer science for the years 2004-2008 respectively. Comparison portends that similarity and differences in performances of the subject should be ascertained for the stated five years internal. Therefore the statement of the program of this study is given below.
Statement of the program
Ascertain the similarities and difference of junior secondary schools performances in computer and integrated science for five years in Enugu South. Purpose of the study This study compared the junior secondary school computer science and integrated science performance for five years in Enugu South local government area specifically the found out the mean achievement scores of computer science and integrated science of the selected schools. This was to determine if there either similarities or differences. Significant of the study The study will encourage the students to study computer science and integrated science harder to achieve more in junior secondary school certificate examination. Teachers of computer science and integrated science will gear up to increase their output in teaching student.
The state ministry of education would find out where there are recommended for make up a especially if insufficient staffing and finding are required if published. The state curriculum planners may use the study to find out if there is the need to revise curricular of the two subject if publish.
Scope of the study
The study focused on the comparison of junior secondary school performance in computer science and integrated science in Enugu South Local Government Area. Two school were selected for the study
1. What is mean achievement score of computer science students in 2004? 2. What is mean achievement score of computer science students in 2005? 3. What is mean achievement score of computer science students in 2006? 4. What is mean achievement score of computer science students in 2007? 5. What is mean achievement score of computer science students in 2008? 6. What is mean achievement score of integrated science students in 2004? 7. What is mean achievement score of integrated science students 2005? 8. What is mean achievement score of integrated science students 2006? 9. What is mean achievement score of integrated science students 2007?
10. What is mean achievement score of integrated science students 2008?
