Keywords:ICT, Academic performance, Likert Scale, Nigeria, KMO, School, Statistics.
This paper addressed the factors affecting ICT adoption in a survey of 300 public and private secondary school students in Ogun state, Nigeria. Likert Scale self- designed questionnaire was the instrument of data collection. Data collected were analysed using frequency, scores, percentage scores, total weighted values and factor analysis. The ungrouped factors obtained using the mean weighted values were grouped into five dimensions using the factor analysis. The research showed that five factors are responsible for ICT adoption as perceived by the students. The factors are: assistance or support factors, availability factors, infrastructure factors, learning tools factors and cognitive factors. These factors can be studied in details and addressed to improve the level of ICT adoption in Nigeria.
