1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY.

Zimbabwe has an adult literacy rate of approximately 89% which is among the highest in Africa (EFA Global Monitoring Report, 2007). However, this has been declining considering it was once 92% in the early 90‟s. This makes Zimbabweans insightful when it comes to issues concerning education. The recent years has many adults pursuing further education to improve different productive skills and credentials that are needed in the shrinking job market. In an attempt to acquire these skills many adults attend evening classes. Some want to acquire basic education, for example, General Certificate Education Ordinary level. The General Certificate Education Ordinary Level has the grading A, B, C, D, E, with C being the lowest pass and A being the highest pass. The Zimbabwean requirements for a full certificate is five ‟O‟ Levels, which include English Language. The recent years have seen a pass in Mathematics also made compulsory. This has led to many adults who do not have a full certificate going back to school. In order to cater for these needs the Ministry of Education Sports and Culture in Zimbabwe has set a programme in public schools where „O‟ Level is being taught after normal working hours. These students are called private candidates. It has been observed that the pass rate of private candidates is low compared to those attending conventional school. Their results show that some candidates register but do not write the examination.

Lemmer and Dekker (1993) clearly state that no factor is more important for positive school outcomes than the children‟s perception of the teacher‟s attitude toward them and expectations. They claim that when students believe that their teachers care about them, see them as competent, respect their views and desire their success, they tend to work toward fulfilling those high expectations. Teachers‟ expectations of pupils‟ performance and abilities can operate as a self-fulfilling prophecy within a classroom (Lemmer and Dekker, 1993). There are tendencies for the performance of the pupils to conform to the expectations declared by the teacher. According to Shalveson and Marsh (1986), students‟ attitude towards their ability to influence their academic outcome does affect their performance. Schneider et al. (2012) argues that students‟ feelings, attitudes, and perceptions they hold about their academic ability that is, academic self-concept, does affect their performance. When students have low academic self-concept they shift to self-handicapping. This method shifts blame away from the individual, and allows them to have excuses for failure. Students are more likely to achieve high marks when they believe in their own capacities and do not feel anxious about the learning process, (Schneider et al., 2012). Shalveson and Marsh (1986) also states that Self-efficacy in mathematics affects students‟ willingness to take on challenging tasks and the amount of effort and persistence. Bandura (1994) cites that students were asked to what extent they believe in their own ability to handle learning situations in mathematics effectively, overcoming difficulties tackling them. Results showed that self-efficacy and self-concept did affect performance and was also a key impact on motivation.

Adult literacy center is a place where adults are taught how to read and write. The goal of the Adult Literacy Center (ALC) is to improve literacy in adults, resulting in enhanced self-esteem, daily living, and life-long learning.
