and the world at large. The study sought to determine influence of teacher related factors on
timely coverageof KCSE Biology syllabus in Secondary Schools in Rongai Sub-County, Kenya.
The objective of this study is to establish influence of teacher related factorson time of coverage
of KCSE Biology syllabus in Secondary Schools in Rongai Sub-County, Kenya. The study

The target population of this study comprised of 174 Biology teachers across 54 schools in

constituting sample size of 174 teachers. Data was obtained using a questionnaire. The findings
revealed that there exist a positive and statistically significant relationship between Teacher

concluded that, teacher related factors cause a significant positive variation on timely coverage
of Biology Syllabus. Therefore, these factors are central to timely coverage of Biology syllabus.
They are worth considering when adequate and timely coverage of Biology syllabus is sought.
