Covenant University (NIGERIA)
Achievement motivation level among university students varies. Some are highly motivated and achieve success while some are lowly motivated and experience little success. This study examined the influence of gender and parents educational qualifications on achievement motivation level of Covenant University students. The scope was limited to undergraduate students of the four Colleges in Covenant University namely, College of Business and Social Sciences, Engineering, Science and Technology, and Leadership Development Studies. To achieve the objective of this study, two research questions and four hypotheses were raised and formulated respectively to guide the investigation of the study. The sample of the study consisted of three hundred (300) students comprising 206 males and 94 females randomly selected. Questionnaire forms were used for data collection. The study made use of the ex-post factor method which consists of survey and descriptive designs. Results show that female students’ achievement motivation level is stronger than that of the males at 1% level of significance (0.626). There is no significant correlation between father’s highest educational qualification and students’ achievement motivation level for both males and females at (0.064). However, there was a significant relationship between mother’s highest educational qualification and students’ achievement motivation level. (0.105). Based on the findings, it was recommended that male students should be given the same level of attention as the females by parents. In addition, the university should introduce sustainable mentorship programmes with faculty role models to motivate the male students.
