INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Academic attainment is stimulatingly a central issue of government, parents, teachers and community in general. Nowadays, the worry with the subject of refining academic performance has also improved. Research revealed a significant relationship between socio-psychological variables (such as; Interest, motivation and self-efficacy) and academic performance (Adeyemu, 2005). Interest is referred as a content-exact motivational distinctive formed of inherent sensation-related and worth-related valences. It often identified as one of the important motivational constructs that influence students' engagement and achievement in learning (Shen & Chen, 2006). The findings from various studies point out the position of interest for the complexity of text comprehension, the practice of learning strategies, as well as the quality of the expressive experience while learning (Ulrich, 1991). Despite this, Zaiton and Salim (2012) indicate that one of the factors affecting students’ interest in learning Islamic and Christian education is parent’s influence, which prevents children from getting an adequate learning. Islam and Christian education encourages parents to take good care about their children's education and other activities right from home up to the school environment and also urge them to strive to fulfil it. Children are trust given to the parent if parent fulfil the responsibility given to them will surely develop an interest to children on learning. So children's Islamic and Christian education is a task that Islam and Christian gave to parents where Islam and Christian promised a severe burden that the negligent will not even smell the fragrance of paradise rather to be among the dwellers. Despite the serious burden for their negligence, many parents nowadays failed to fulfil this responsibility in acquiring Islamic and Christian education to their children. Lack of parental involvement in learning Islamic and Christian education helps to create failure at school and negatively affect the interest as well as an incentive for children. Many students cannot learn effectively, and as a result of this perform poorly in school tests and examinations. The failure is not necessary as a result of their low intellectual inadequacies or lack of material or due to poor studies habits but probably because they have not been properly stimulated or aroused to develop an interest in learning. Base on this, the present study aimed to determine a comparative analysis of students’ performance in Islamic and Christian education as it found related positively to the learning outcomes.

1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

Student’s academic performance in Islamic and Christian studies has been declining over the years since the introduction of the multi-faith based Islamic and Christian studies syllabus in 2008 that uses the interpretive approach. Speculations have been made for the low performance and they include; teachers lack of content and pedagogical knowledge and inadequate assessment skills. Furthermore, the studies show that students do not perform well due to problems associated with their family background and general school environment (Egalite, 2016; Foley, 2008; Schaps, 2005). This study therefore explored causes of the decline in the performance of the Islamic and Christian studies in secondary schools in Ido L. G. A.
