Educational Research and Reviews, v6 n16 p864-876 Oct 2011
This study investigated attitude and motivation as predictors of academic achievement of students in clothing and textiles. Three colleges of education in Edo and Delta States were randomly selected for use in this study. From each school, 40 students were selected from Year III using simple random technique yielding a total of 240 students. The instruments that were used to gather data for this research include clothing and textile attitude scale, clothing and textile motivation scale, and clothing and textile achievement test. Among the findings of this study is that attitude is capable of predicting academic achievement of students in clothing and textile. One of the recommendations of this study is that since attitude and motivation are predictors of academic achievements, all agents of education especially teachers or/lecturers should encourage students to develop the right/good attitude and create right atmosphere in lectures that will motivate students to learn.
