Abstract

Studies on academic achievement have been one of the most researched areas in education, evaluation and assessment. Student’s time on task and study habit is important factors when considering the performance of students in their academics. The study used descriptive survey design. Simple random sampling technique was employed to sample students from both public and private junior secondary schools in Oyo State. Two instruments: Mathematics Time on Task and Study Habit (r=0.795) and Mathematics Achievement Test (MAT) were used in the study. Data were analysed using Pearson product moment Correlation, multiple regression and independent t-test at ? = 0.05 level of significance. The result revealed among others that time on task has a significant correlation with academic achievement in mathematics [r= 0.233, p<0.05]. This article recommended that there is need for students to plan their learning time effectively and follow the time planned. Also, students should develop a good study habit> <0.05]. This article recommended that there is need for students to plan their learning time effectively and follow the time planned. Also, students should develop a good study habit.
