Assessment strategies of physics teachers in secondary schools: a way forward for physics achievement

This study employed descriptive survey design to investigate assessment of strategies of physics teachers in senior secondary schools; way forward in physics achievement.A sample of 150(78males, 72females) out of a population of 544 senior secondary school physics students in Umuahia North Local Government Area (LGA) of Umuahia Education Zone of Abia State was got by simple random technique.Two research questions and one null hypothesis tested at 0.05 level of significance guided the study. The instrument used for data collection was researchers developed four point Likert type ‘questionnaire. The instrument was validated and its reliability obtained as 0.89 using Cronbach Alpha. Data were analyzed using mean to answer the research questions and t test statistics for the hypothesis. Result showed that teacher competence like formulating and adopting good teaching lesson plans, relating new lesson with previous lesson skills and teachers preparation of appropriate and valid assessment tools like assessing students learning with proper evaluation tools, informing students of their performance and improvement, recording and proper computation of students skills among others are strategies the physics teacher can use to improve students achievement in physics. Based on the findings recommendations were made to include physics teachers carrying their students along by giving them feedback on their performances among others
