Abstract

The study examines the impact of classroom design on student learning and progress in private secondary schools in Port Harcourt Metropolis. The study adopted the descriptive research design was used in the study. The study was guided by three research questions and three hypotheses. The population of the study consisted of 3412 (three thousand four hundred and twelve) students drawn from the 253 approved secondary schools in Port Harcourt Metropolis. The sample size of the study is 620 (six hundred and twenty) students who are drawn from the population of 3412 students thereby making 18% of the total population which was determined using the simple random sampling technique while the stratified random sampling technique was used to determine the sample size distribution among the male and female teachers for the schools. A self-created questionnaire with the title; Impact of Classroom Design on Student Learning and Progress Questionnaire (ICDSLPQ) was the tool utilized to gather data. Mean and standard deviation were used as statistical tools to answer the research questions while the null hypotheses were tested using Independent t-test with the aid of SPSS Version 26.0. The results of the study revealed that the overall physical design of the classroom such as lighting, layout and technology has an impact on student learning and progress. The study concluded that the physical design of the classroom had little impact on student learning and progress when taken as a whole. Based on findings, the study recommended among others that school administrators and teachers should focus on the specific aspects of the physical environment that can have an impact on student learning and progress.
