Background to the Study
Teaching practice is an integral part of teacher education programme. It is geared towards preparation of new entrants into the teaching profession. It is through it that necessary preserves teaching experience is acquired. Teacher’s performance in the classroom eventually determined the quality of the school more than any other factor. The exercise is to acquaint student teachers with the practical knowledge of teaching and learning process including lesson plan/note preparation, presentation, class management, communication skills, evaluation and the required personality of professional teachers. Fashin (1996) observed that successful completion of teaching practice build life style confidence in prospective teacher and implies the further professional advancement of the in-service student’s teacher who then feels a greater sense of professional self-worth.

They also stress the practice teaching that it helps the trainee teacher to test out the validity of his self-concept and initial career decisions to join teaching as an occupation. In line with the NCE directives, students should go on teaching practice for a period of four months in the present college curriculum. In order to make teaching practice exercise effective. The school of education organized orientation programmes for both lectures/supervisors and the students.

- Are the performances of student comparable across the school of sciences in 2010/2011 and 2011/2012 and academic session?
Purpose of the study
The purpose of study is to compare the relationship between the performances of students in EDU 213 (Micro teaching) and EDU 311 (teaching practice) in (2015/2016) academic session in the school of science.
Significance of the study

For the purpose of this study, the following research questions were raised.
- Is there any difference between EDU 213(Micro teaching) scores and the average EDU311 (Teaching practice) scores in the performance of students in sciences in 2011/2012 academic session?
- Is there any difference between EDU213 (micro teaching) scores and the average EDU 311 (teaching practice) scores in the performance of students in 2011/2012 academic session?
