For the proprietor, running a small or medium-sized business has certain special difficulties. You need to understand financial management, human resource management, and the laws and regulations pertaining to your industry in addition to the fundamentals of small company principles. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) continue to perform poorly despite the increased interest in private enterprises' contributions to employment and income creation. In this study, the review covered the SME management practices from a variety of areas such as; financial management, cash management, investment returns among SME owners, financial reporting and analysis, working capital management among SMEs, accounting information (value-relevance), inventory management practices, fixed asset management practices, challenges of effective financial management practices among SMEs, accounts payable management, accounts receivable management,&nbsp; and the relevance of SMEs sector We see that the quality of managerial practices improves the level of performance of firms. SMEs promote economic growth in every nation hence there is a need for policymakers to support the improvement of managerial skills of entrepreneurs in order to increase the (SMEs) contribution to economic growth and employment.</p> 2022-07-14T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Elida Serwaa Adjei-Boateng Relationship between Religion and Health-Seeking Belief Outcomes in the Sunyani Municipality 2022-03-20T16:35:22+00:00 Gordon Adomah <p>The leading causes of morbidity and mortality in Ghana include diseases such as malaria, lower respiratory tract infections, stroke, cardiovascular diseases, and diarrhoea diseases. Making quality and affordable healthcare accessible to people ensures that people are protected from healthcare-related harm. However, many will still opt for faith healing despite the availability of proper medical attention. This study's primary objective is to examine the Relationship between Religion and Health-Seeking Belief Outcomes in the Sunyani Municipality. The study's goals were met by using a cross-sectional research approach. The study also employed a mixed-method approach, which involved the use of both qualitative and quantitative data-gathering techniques. The present study viewed religion and spirituality as a multidimensional component and quantified it using a novel measure of religion and spirituality for research on health outcomes. A Mann-Whitney U test was used to determine if there was a difference in the health-seeking behaviour between men and women study participants. The mean ranks for men and women were 45.23 and 52.39 respectively. The test results revealed that there was no statistically significant difference in the health-seeking behaviour of the older adult participants depending upon their gender, i.e. men and women (U=931.5, n1=66, n2=33, p=0.24). The findings of the study suggest that the inclusion of religious faith did have a significant impact on the lifestyle choices of those who practised them. It was discovered throughout the interviews that a person's religious affiliation affected many other parts of their lives, not only their health decisions. Diet, sanitation, cleanliness, modesty, clothing and grooming, family planning, blood transfusion, organ transplantation, pregnancy, care of the dying, burial, post-mortems, and festivities/celebrations were among these consequences, but they weren't restricted.</p> 2023-01-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Chukwuma Chinaza Adaobi Address Forms of the Kolamↄ of Ghana: A Sociolinguistic Analysis 2022-01-29T22:04:56+00:00 Yeboah-Mensah Aborampah <p>This paper focuses on typical address forms of the Kolangꜫ language (a Gur member of the Niger-Congo classification) in the socio-linguistic context of the language use of the people. Astrit Maria and Sudirman William (2019) express that, “address terms indicate the speaker’s attitude, intention, as well as a relationship with the addressee that someone is talking to”. This paper principally explores how native speakers of Kolangꜫ appropriately address one another using varied address terms. Address terms in the domains of kinship, occupation, age, formal titles, status description, religion, intimacy, respect, nicknames, and mockery are examined. Attempts were made to explain, discuss or give meanings to the various address forms used in every situation from the sociolinguistic perspective. The data collection techniques I used were observation (both participant and non-participant), unstructured interviews, informal conversation, and my own introspection as a native speaker. The main finding from the analysis of data was that the Kolangꜫ speaking group as any other tribe has its own way of addressing members in that tribe and that the typical address forms used by native Kolangꜫ speakers are appropriate names or titles or reference terms used to show politeness, deference, solidarity, intimacy, mockery, and familiarity when speaking to or addressing someone. This, however, depends on the relationship between the addresser and addressee, the speaker’s intention, the setting of the encounter, and the subject being discussed. The study result has implications for the sociolinguistic analysis of address forms in relation to European and non-European (African) linguistic cultural settings.</p> 2023-02-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Scholars Journal of Science and Technology Do Teaching Models Affect Students' Academic Performance 2022-11-17T17:12:22+00:00 Noble Amoako Sarkodie <p>The study's objective was to evaluate the effect of the ADDIER and ASSURER models on the academic performance of students. A test was used to collect data from Sunyani Technical University's final-year hospitality students in Ghana as part of the study's experimental research design. SPSS version 20 was used to manage and process the data. The data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study unveiled that the ADDIER and ASSURER models have impact on students’ academic performance. Comparatively, it can be seen from the values of the effect size statistics that the ASSURER Model has a stronger impact on students' academic performance than the ADDIER Model. The study is important as it has provided empirical evidence on effect of reflection processes on the students' academic performance and expanded literature on hospitality education. It is recommended that the study be repeated with a large sample size in other tertiary institutions to confirm the external validity of the theoretical expansions.</p> 2023-02-16T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Noble Amoako Sarkodie K. B Amihere (2015) I Spoke For Freedom: History And Politics Of The Ghana Press. Published By DigiBooks Ghana Limited, Gh100.00 2022-06-02T14:08:57+00:00 David Larweh Baako <p>I spoke for freedom: history and politics of the Ghana press, is a book that recounts the professional journey of an accomplished media luminary who has worked in all aspects of the media space in Ghana. The author, Ambassador Kabral Blay Amihere, is a Ghanaian statesman and Diplomat who has been working for most of his working life as a journalist; reporter, editor, publisher, teacher, manager since the 1970s. He also served as Ghana’s High Commissioner to Sierra Leon and later Ghana’s Ambassador to Cote d’Ivoire from 2001-2005 and 2006-2009 respectively. The book is a collection of his experiences presented in speeches at various functions. The book is divided into seven sections, which deals with different issues and themes in the journalistic life of a young professional in Ghana. These sections, however different, are intertwined in the core and central theme of the journey during his media practice.</p> 2023-01-26T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 David Larweh Baako Effect of Class Size on The Teaching and Learning of Mathematics in Senior High Schools 2022-03-20T14:01:14+00:00 James Kwabena Odum Stephen Nanyele <p>This study sought to determine the extent to which large class size influenced the manner in which teaching and learning were mediated in senior high schools. To achieve this, the survey design was employed. 192 students were purposively selected from four (4) senior high schools in the Asutifi North and South District. Questionnaire with a reliability coefficient of 0.791 was used to obtain data from the respondents. Quantitative data analysis was performed using the Statistical Products and Service Solutions (SPSS). Both descriptive and inferential statistical tools were used in order to analyze the data, and also answer the research questions. To find out the influence of class size on the teaching and learning of mathematics in SHS, the mean, standard deviation, multiple linear regression as well as the Pearson’s product moment correlation were used to perform the analyses of the data collected. The study revealed that large class size influenced students’ academic performance and also limits their learning opportunities of students. It was again unravelled that classroom interactions had a great influence on the students’ academic performance. It has been recommended that since small class size and good classroom interactions enhance performance. Therefore, teachers and head teachers should make sure they conform to the required teacher to student ratio of 1:40 by the Ghana Education Service. Teachers should create an enabling environment for students to participate in classroom activities. Furthermore, the study showed that students performed well in smaller class size and good classroom interaction. Therefore, the Government should employ more teachers and build more classrooms to solve the problem of large class size in the senior high schools in Ghana.</p> 2023-02-02T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Ernest Boateng, Ojo Luke
