Abstract


This study investigated the relationship between continuous assessment scores and junior secondary school certificate examination(JSCE) final scores in Imo State. A sample of four hundred students were purposively selected from thirty eight thousand students who took the 1997 JSCE in Imo State. The data used were collected from the cumulative records of students‟ scores in continuous assessment and JSCE grades and analyzed using Pearson product moment formula for research questions while all the hypothesis were tested using z-ratio at 0.05 level of significance. Three out of the four null hypothesis tested were rejected, while one was accepted. Finally, recommendations and suggestions were made for further research.
