Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to find out the association between the students performance in readiness and diagnostic test scores in secondary school Biology. The design of the study was correlation and the population was all the 2256 students’ secondary school II students in biology in the 2014/2015 academic session. Simple random sampling (battling without replacement) was used to sample 420 students from 14 secondary schools in Udi Local Government area of Enugu State. The instruments for data collection were diagnostic biology achievement tests (DBAT) and readiness biology achievement tests (RBAT). Pearson ‘r’ and t-test were used to correlate and test the research question and hypothesis at 0.05 level of confidence respectively. Based on the analyzed data, it was found out that out of the 10 schools studied, the relationship between readiness and diagnostic scores was significant in six schools, the relationship was significant in the co-educational and girls’ schools but that was not significant in the boys’ schools. Based on the findings of the study, the researcher recommended among other things that scores from readiness test could be used to make decision on students who might be unavoidably absent during the diagnostic test in Biology and vice versa.
