dc.description.abstract In this study we set to determine whether there exists a difference in the performance in Mathematics occasioned by the category of the school (boarding or day secondary schools) and if such a difI ference occurs then to what extent is it influenced by the category of the school Ceteris Paribas. We intend to use Analysis ofVariance (ANOVA) as a statistical tool to do this with our blocks being the 27 sampled schools blocked into two categories i.e. Day schools and Boarding schools, our treatments being the five years under study i.e, 2007 - 2011 and our parameter being the mean standard score (M.S.S.) in Mathematics. Two null hypotheses were posted and tested at 0.05 level of significance using the two-way analysis of variance for various means. A two-way ANOV A table for a randomized block design was used to study 135 scores drawn from 27 schools sampled out of the 120 schools in the study area. Collection of data was done using document analysis as a secondary source of data. The results of this study could be useful in advising the various stakeholders on the type of scho ols that are likely to produce the best results in order to make informed decisions on the cost factor versus the optimum score en_US
