Engagement in Mobile Learning As a Correlate of Academic Performance among Science Education Students in Public Universities in Enugu State, Nigeria (Published)

This study determined engagement in mobile learning as a correlate of academic performance among science education students. The correlation survey research design was employed. The population of the study comprised 83(34 males and 49 females) science education level 3 students of 2017/2018 academic session in the two public universities in Enugu State. The sample was all the eighty three (83) science education level 3 students since it is manageable. Two instruments; Students’ Engagement in Mobile Learning Questionnaire (SEMLQ) and Students’ Academic Performance Proforma (SAPP) developed by the researchers were used to collect data. The SEMLQ was subjected to reliability analysis using Cronbach Alpha Method. Data collected were analyzed using multiple regression analysis to answer the research questions and test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The result showed that: the regression/beta coefficients (β) associated with each of the predictor variables in predicting students’ academic performance was significant. A coefficient of determination (R2) of 0.77 obtained indicated that 77% of variation in students’ academic performance was attributable to students’ engagement in mobile learning compositely; gender does not significantly moderate the prediction of students’ academic performance.

Trend Analysis of Rainfall Pattern in Enugu State, Nigeria. (Published)

Rainfall distribution pattern has been a major concern to Climatologists, Penologists, Agriculturist hydrologist and even to the ordinary man in the street. Rainfall is a critical index of climatological investigation and has major impacts on flora and fauna, as well as ecological setting and water resources management of any area.  Following the current moves by the governments to improve on agriculture; the pattern of rainfall is essential for indigenes of Enugu state since they are predominantly farmers. As the moves to encourage agriculture to ensure food security continues to gain ground and acceptability, information on rainfall probabilities is vital for the design of water supply and supplemental irrigation schemes and the evaluation of alternative cropping and of soil water management plans. This study has examined the pattern of rainfall in the state and observed some irregularities in the pattern. For government’s efforts towards improving agriculture to be fruitful, a more advanced technology of ensuring constant rain source is very vital.
