Evaluation of Studio Infrastructure/Facilities for Teaching of Fine and Applied Arts in Public Colleges of Education in Southeast Nigeria


This study evaluates studio infrastructure/facilities for teaching and learning of Fine and Applied Arts in public Colleges of Education in Southeastern Nigeria. The evaluation research design was adopted in the study. The design was chosen because of the evaluative nature of the study. The population of this study was made up of all the facilities in FAA departments in all Federal and State-owned Colleges of Education in the Southeast. Through simple random sampling six public colleges of education were obtained from eight colleges of Education in the zone. All the facilities in these six colleges were studied. The instrument used to collect data for the study was an Observation Schedule (OS) for ascertaining availability and adequacy of facilities. This Observation Schedule (OS) was face-validated by two experts, one from Measurement Unit and Evaluation Unit and the other from Fine and Applied Arts Department, both in Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education Owerri. The reliability of the instrument was established using Cohen's Kappa. Kappa co-efficient of 0.83 was obtained. Data were analyzed using percentages and mean. Findings show that facilities were available in the colleges but not adequate. The study recommends among others that the school managements should make studio facilities adequate for the attainment and achievement of the lofty objectives of fine and applied arts.
