How to review and create gaps from the study ”Teachers Application of Ethics of Classroom Assessment in Secondary Schools in Enugu State”

The major problem most researchers or students face in their current thesis or project work is the inability to properly review related literature or studies, which in turn propagates to an inability to properly draw gaps in the present study being carried out by the students or researchers.

What is this gap? “Gap” simply refers to what your current study hopes to accomplish that previous or reviewed studies did not. If you find yourself here, it means your problem with gap creation will be a thing of the past. We will be using studies to teach you how to create¬† gaps in your current study or project.

Assuming your current study is on “teachers’¬†application of ethics of classroom assessment in primary schools in Benue state and you want to review this past study on “teachers’ application of ethics of classroom assessment in secondary schools in Enugu state” in order to draw gaps, here is how to go about it.

Start by giving an overview of the study you want to review.

Ene, Ikeh and Nwoye (2018) carried out a study on teachers’ application of the ethics of classroom assessment in secondary schools in Enugu state, which is the purpose of the study. Descriptive research design was used for the execution of the study. The population of the study comprised of 4,190 senior secondary school teachers in the 2017/2018 academic year. The sample for the study was made up of 419 teachers, of which 105 were males and 314 were females, using a multistage sampling procedure. Three research questions and one hypothesis guided the study. A 26-item questionnaire was the instrument for data collection. The Cronbach Alpha method was used to establish the reliability of the instrument, from which an index of 0.81 was obtained. The research questions were answered using mean and standard deviation, and the hypothesis was tested using a t-test. The study found that teachers apply classroom assessment ethics while testing to a high degree, but that evaluating students’ work and educating students on test taking skills to a low degree. It was suggested, among other things, that teachers be aware that ethical classroom assessment techniques will lead to improved decisions about students.

This is where you create gaps and you start by writing:

The reviewed work is similar and relevant to the current work in the sense that both studies¬†determine teachers’ application of the ethics of classroom assessment. The current study will also use a questionnaire as an instrument for data collection, and the method of estimating the reliability of the instrument in the reviewed work and the current work is the same. The current work will also use mean and standard deviation to answer research questions and the t-test to test hypothesis. However, the reviewed work is different from the current study in the following areas: The reviewed work was focused on secondary school teachers, whereas the current study will be focused on primary school teachers. This is because primary school teachers normally have heavy work loads and are sometimes less qualified than secondary school teachers. Also, the reviewed work was carried out in Enugu State, whereas the current work will be done in Benue State. This is because teachers’ ethical practices concerning classroom assessment practices may differ due to the economy’s structure (how much they are being paid).
