Two self-constructed questionnaires called staff development questionnaire (SDQ) and academic staff output questionnaire (ASOQ) were used for data collection. The first instrument was administered to 800 academic staff.The second instrument, three copies were administered one each to three students to assess each individual academic staff.Data collected were analyzed using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and independent t-test.
