Abstract

The major objective of the article is to find out the students’ perception on effectiveness of teaching learning process at higher secondary schools in Bahawalpur, Punjab. A randomly selected group of 545 students of intermediate classes (1st and 2nd year) from the six government higher secondary schools of Bahawalpur district responded on a four points agree/disagree Likert type scale through personal visits of the researcher to the data sights. Seven factors (Infrastructure, nature of relationship, teaching learning process, school environment, school management, discipline and co-curricular activities) solution with 47% of common variance was accepted as a result of Principle component analysis with Varimax rotation. All the factors explained 47% of total variance. Cronbach Alpha value remained more than 0.7 for all the cases. Strongly agreed and agreed responses on each item of the factor and then factor on the whole merged together to give rise agree frequency whereas addition of strongly disagree and disagree frequencies resulted disagree set of responses. The percentages of both the set of responses were calculated. Independent sample t test and one way ANOVA were run to work out the demographic effects. The results showed that more than sixty percent students were agreed about actively participating in learning activities, teachers help students to solve their learning problems, practice new skill of teaching in the classroom, institution building is neat and clean, priority of school is cleanliness, IT sources are sufficiently used in the school, coordinate with parents regarding learning of students and use variety of co-curricular activities for developing personality of students
