TH Agbajor

Abstract


Academic reconstruction is a continuous process that caters for the overhauling of a deteriorating educational process. Such decadency is explicit inhow students perform poorly in internal and external examinations. In view of this, this study examined the relationship between self-efficacy, parental motivation and academic performance of secondary school students in attaining academic reconstruction. The study had a sample size of 1000 respondents, three hypotheses that were tested at 0.05 margin error using pearson product moment correlation and multiple regression analysis. The findings revealed that self-efficacy, parental motivation significantly correlate with student academic performance in the attainment of academic reconstruction. The study therefore recommend the need to use individual, group counselling, workshop, seminars as a medium in educating students on how to develop and improve their self-efficacy and to motivate parents to provide more support, care and encouragement to their wards as a measure of assisting in the academic reconstruction process.
