Covenant University (NIGERIA)
The choice of teaching method which is the general principles, pedagogy and management strategies used for classroom instruction is very important to degree of assimilation by the recipient of teaching. Teaching theories primarily fall into two categories or “approaches” teacher-centered and student-centered. Teachers are the main authority figure in this model. Students are viewed as empty vessels whose primary role is to passively receive information (via lectures and direct instruction) with an end goal of testing and assessment.

However in a student-centered approach, teachers and students play an equally active role in the learning process. The teacher’s primary role is to coach and facilitate student learning and overall comprehension of material. Student learning is measured through both formal and informal forms of assessment, including group projects, student portfolios, and class participation. The main aim of this paper is to examine the relationship between teaching method and assimilation of students and the impact on examination performance. A sample of 300 students cutting across the various schools and colleges in Covenant University who have taken at least not less than two semesters examinations shall be considered. Student-Lecturer relationship, examination contents, students’ mode of study and assimilation, effort and students’ CGPA shall be the parameters to be used for this purpose.
