Abstract


This study determines the influence of Business education administrators' information management on administrative roles performance in Rivers State tertiary institutions. Three specific purposes, two research questions and one hypothesis guided the study. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. The population of the study consists of 102 business educators and 62 heads of departments from Rivers State University, Ignatius Ajuru University of education, and Federal College of Education (Tech.), Omoku-Rivers State. 96 business educators who were present and willing to respond to the questionnaire and the 62 heads of departments were used as the sample of the study. Accidental sampling techniques were used to select the participants. Two questionnaires designed based on four points rating scales were used for data collection. The two instruments were face validated by two lecturers: one expert in measurement and evaluation and the other of Business Education major from Rivers State University. The reliability of the instruments was tested using test retest method. The data collected were correlated using Pearson Product Moment Correlation to obtain 0.78 and 0.82 for the two instruments which were converted to reliability index using Spearman Brown probability formula to obtain 0.72 and 0.76 respectively. Data collected for the study were analysed using mean and multiple regression analysis computed with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 20.0. The findings of the study revealed that Business education administrators' information management competences significantly influence their administrative roles performance. It was also discovered that administrators performed below expectation in facilitating cordial relationship between staff and students using extra curricula activities. Based on thefindings, it was recommended among others that: Business education administrators should always be exposed to more techniques and skills of information management through workshops by the central institutional authority.
