Abstract

Several studies have been conducted to assess the influence of Information Technology on job performance of staff in Nigerian higher institutions.  Much study has not been done in the area of Computer-based Information Technology (CBIT) on job performance of secretarial staff in university education systems in which this study aims to address. This research, therefore, investigates the relationship between CBIT and Job performance of secretarial staff in universities in Oyo State.  The study specifically examines the effect of CBIT on job performance of secretarial staff in University of Ibadan and Ladoke Akintola University of Technology as case studies.

Descriptive research design was adopted for the study through administering questionnaires and the analysis was carried out using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) tool. The study makes use of t-test statistics to show the significance of CBIT on job performance of secretarial staff. Findings of this study reveal positive use of CBITon job performance of secretarial staff in the institutions.  The paper therefore recommends appropriate policy measures and implementation to enhance the use of CBIT among secretarial staff for sustainable academic development and economic growth.

    The survey conducted by the researchers are done in an effective way to come to a decision on whether it is necessary to use Computer-Based Information Technology (CBIT) to boost the output of the workforce specially in the secretarial level. As expected it is reflected in the survey study conducted that CBIT increase the service level of the organization. It is proved by the analysis shown. Overall it can be concluded that the survey was successful.

    The related works reviewed in this article are relatively current and this gives credibility to the conference paper. The statistics analyzed in table 2 - Usage of Computer-Based Information Technology is the reflection of CBIT usage in the areas of coverage. Generally, the article is relevant and meets international standard and hence, it is reliable.

      Dear viewer: Emmanuel Nwani,
      I am so delighted in your comment. Table 2 throws more light on the usage of IT tools by Secretarial Staff in their day-to-day activities in their organisation which have been of added value to their job by shifting from traditional method to modern system.
      Thank you very much for your positive comment on my research study. .

      Dear Viewer, Ayeni Gabriel Omoniyi
      I appreciate your comment. The confounding factor in the study was the attitude of the respondent to the instruments at the initial stage which were not encouraging, until when research assistant intervened in educating them on the importance attached to the study.
      In your second question, there was no room for bias during the course of the research study. Both male and female (gender) were included when administered the questionnaires.
      Thank you and God bless.

    Dear Author,
    I am quite impressed with your findings especially in table 2.
    I would like to know if during your study, there are indications that the core academic activity are in support of the complete use of Information Technology in discharge of their duties beyond the secretarial staff of the institution.
    Well Done Madam.
