Four null hypotheses were raised and tested at 0.05 level of significance. A descriptive cross sectional survey was adopted for the study with 10,856 undergraduates as the study population. The sample size of 386 was calculated using Cochran formula which was selected using two- stage sampling procedures. The Reliability coefficient value of 0.80&nbsp; for the validated instrument was obtained using Pearson Products Moment Correlation Coefficient.The data collected was analyzed using Statistical Products for Service Solution (SPSS) version 25.0) using regression analysis was adopted to test the null hypotheses.The result in table 1.1 above revealed that there was a significant difference between alcohol intake and perceived health effect among students [f(4,390) = 10.953, p&lt;0.05].The result in table 1.2 above revealed that there was a significant difference between alcohol intake and perceived physical effect among students [f(4,390) = 8.798, p&lt;0.05].The result in table 4.9 above revealed that there was a significant difference between alcohol intake and perceived social effect among students [f(4,390) = 14.147, p&lt;0.05].The result in table 4.10 above revealed that there was a significant difference between alcohol intake and perceived mental effect among students [f(4,390) = 14.147, p&lt;0.05]. Conclusively, it was observed from the findings that heavy alcohol intake exposes the undergraduates of IAUE to several health problems such as physical, social, psychological effects. Among others, it was recommended that University management should establish a monitoring team to police the nooks and crannies of the environment were illicit substances are taken.</p> 2024-05-27T09:43:43+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Counseling Seeking Behavior Prediction: Role of School Connectedness, Emotional intelligence and academic adjustment in a Nigerian Polytechnic 2024-06-04T14:49:16+00:00 IGWEILO, OKOYE RITA WILLIAMS, VIVIAN MARK MARYAM IBRAHIM ABUBAKAR ABDULLAHI SABO MUHAMMAD <p><strong><em>The thrust of this investigation was determination ofSchool Connectedness, Emotional Intelligence and Academic Adjustment as predictors of Counseling Seeking Behavior in a Nigerian Polytechnic. Four research questions cum null hypotheses guided the study. This research adapted correlational research strategy. The target population consisted of all students enrolled at Kaduna Polytechnic's in the 2023/2024 session in various academic programs, and a sample size of 300 drawn from six College units using stratified random selection approach. The data collection tools are structured questionnaires adapted from similar researches consisting of parts namely Counseling Seeking Behavior scale (7 items), Students Campus Connectedness Scale (44 items), Emotional Intelligence (37 items) and Students Adjustment scale (23 items) rated on Likert scale pattern all producing high internal consistency reliabilities determined by Cronbach alpha methods. The researcher gathered data personally during lessons and analyzed it using descriptive and inferential statistics in SPSS. The findings are: Counseling Seeking Behavior and School Connectedness of Kaduna polytechnic students was low and not encouraging, while academic adjustment is indeed very high and interesting. Emotional intelligence is not significant and very low. There is significant and positive relationship between Counseling Seeking Behavior and School Connectedness and Emotional Intelligence, while a negative relationships occurred with Academic Adjustment. Recommendations were suggested based on the research findings among which is the Polytechnic Management should sensitize the students on the availability of counseling services and facilities in the institution.</em></strong></p> 2024-06-02T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## GUIDANCE AND COUNSELLING A VERITABLE INSTRUMENT OF EDUCATION FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT 2024-06-08T05:52:19+00:00 Margaret G.

If the future must be sustained through education, then a veritable instrument must be put in place to achieve the desired results and this instrument is Guidance and Counselling. The paper is a position paper highlighting Guidance and counselling as a veritable instrument of education for sustainable development. Related and relevant information were gathered from, educational websites, textbooks and journal articles. The purpose of this paper is to draw attention to the role of guidance and counselling in education for sustainable development.

James Musa Abubakar <p><em>This paper examines the Effectiveness of “Training at the Right Level (TaRL)” on pupils’ performance”. The work assesses the competency in numeracy of pupils in Adamawa state. The study has three specific purposes - to determine the extent to which the programme is achieving its objective of improving numeracy skills for pupils; to determine the effectiveness of the programme and to assess problems associated with the general activity. Data was sourced primarily by invoking the “Pratham tool “, for assessing the numeracy” level of the pupils in grades 3-5; three (3) primary schools from the Central Senatorial Zone of Adamawa State of Nigeria, were randomly selected - Makera, Bekaji and Nassarawo - beneficiaries of the TaRL intervention scheme. Hundred (100) pupils from each of the three (3) primary schools were assessed separately using the “Pratham” Tools. The research instrument used is “Naturalistic Research” - a qualitative method, used to examine the condition of natural objects (as opposed to experiments) where the researcher is the key instrument. The results of qualitative research emphasize meaning rather than generalizations; this is achieved through - observations, tests, and documentation. Descriptive statistics was used to analyze the data recorded.A baseline assessment categorized pupils' numeracy skills into levels: Beginners, One Digit, Two Digits, Subtraction, and Division. Following the TaRL intervention, a midline assessment revealed significant improvements in pupils' numeracy skills, indicating the effectiveness of the program.</em></p> <p><em>The success and encouragement recorded in Makera is replicated in Bakeji and Nassarawo primary schools alike. TaRL approach gave imaginary results and has indeed served the curative purpose as expected. The intervention of TaRL in the pilot primary schools assessed is quite reassuring.</em></p> 2024-06-11T13:23:30+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
