1.1 Background of the Study
People cannot interact with each other without communication. In the absence of communication, everything would grind to a halt.
Communication between people is the sending and receiving of message, it can involve two or more people. According to Hunt and Marshal (2002), communication is the exchange of ideas or information that involves the decoding of intended message by the sender and receiver. Through communication, needs, feelings, desires and ideas are expressed. Information is given and received through communication and in this way one establishes one’s own identity.
Determining effect of ineffective communication among students on academic performance of was central to this study, as rightly noted by Marschark (2003) classroom communication is one of the most important aspects to consider when discussing the successful teaching and learning.
