By Ishaq O. Oyefolahan Aishat A. Sule Solomon A. Adepoju Faiza Babakano

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Mar. 2019

The growing need for accessible websites cannot be overemphasized as it has posed a major challenge in the world of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Most businesses have gone online in order to improve their market value; the banking sector is not an exception. In an attempt to satisfying customers, websites developers have violated most of the websites standards. The banking sector is one area that carries out most of its activities online. Therefore, it is important that their websites be accessible to all especially people with visually impaired disability and more so, regardless of the browsing technology being used. This study evaluates the accessibility and usability of Nigeria banking websites using some automated tools and manual inspection method. This is done in order to know the conformance of the banking websites with standard as specified by Web Accessibility Initiate (WAI). Results from the study indicate that some of the websites do not conform to the expected standard. Hence, there is need for substantial improvements on most bank websites in Nigeria

A Decision Tree Approach for Predicting Students Academic Performance

By Kolo David Kolo Solomon A. Adepoju John Kolo Alhassan

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Oct. 2015

This research is on the use of a decision tree approach for predicting students' academic performance. Education is the platform on which a society improves the quality of its citizens. To improve on the quality of education, there is a need to be able to predict academic performance of the students. The IBM Statistical Package for Social Studies (SPSS) is used to apply the Chi-Square Automatic Interaction Detection (CHAID) in producing the decision tree structure. Factors such as the financial status of the students, motivation to learn, gender were discovered to affect the performance of the students. 66.8% of the students were predicted to have passed while 33.2% were predicted to fail. It is observed that much larger percentage of the students were likely to pass and there is also a higher likely of male students passing than female students.

By Garba Suleiman Solomon A. Adepoju John K. Alhassan

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 May 2015

The application of Information and Communication Technology which is shaping and changing the world socially, educationally and economically cannot be over emphasized. In view of that, this paper looks at the factors militating against successful implementation of computer studies in 9-year Universal Basic Education (UBE) programmes. Five UBE schools were randomly selected for the research. Two research questions were postulated to guide the conduct of the research and t-test analysis was used for testing the hypotheses. The findings showed that there is positive perception by the students on factors militating against successful implementation of 9-year UBE programme. Based on the findings, some recommendations were made: provision of qualified teachers, instructional materials, provision of laboratories and so on in order to improve and ensure effective and efficient implementation of the 9-year Universal Basic (UBE) programme.

The study investigated the perception of students on computer utilization and academic performance. It is a descriptive research with emphasis on survey design. The population comprised all Colleges of Education in North Central geopolitical zone of Nigeria: made up of six states and FCT-Abuja; out of which six colleges were selected as sample. A 20-item questionnaire (CUSAPQ) was designed and validated through expert judgment and reliability co-efficient of 0.86 was obtained. The null hypotheses were tested using Chi-square and ANOVA statistical analysis at 0.05 level of significance. Findings revealed that there was positive perception of computer utilization on students’ academic performance in the selected zone. Based on the findings, recommendations were made; seminar and workshops on computer utilization should be organised for the lecturers and the students to facilitate active and effective learning.
