This paper assessed factors responsible for improving low academic performance on adult enrollees in selected literacy centres in Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Government Area of Lagos State. The paper explores some factors that have contributed to the poor academic performance of adult enrollees as well as the major factors that are responsible for improving the low academic performance. Three null hypotheses were formulated for the study and the instrument that was used for the study was a questionnaire. A descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. One hundred adult learners were randomly selected from three continuing education centres in Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Government Area of Lagos State for data collection. Data was analyzed using frequency table, percentage and Chi-square. From the results of the investigation, it was recommended that there is a need for government to look into the issue of adult teachers’ promotion as stagnation of teachers in one job group is a recipe for dissatisfaction among teachers leading to poor service delivery and subsequently, low academic performance of learners in literacy centres.

Keywords: Academic Performance, Instructional Practices, Low academic Performance.
