Any change or threat in society makes people nervous and causes changes in their behavior . Especially if the change is health related, individuals are more careful and meticulous about protecting themselves and their families. With the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak, individuals began to behave differently; they started to work from home, do all their shopping online and avoid public areas. They started to behave particularly carefully in the case of going to hospitals where there are many other people due to the pandemic. In this study, the opinions of 30 families who had applied to the pediatric emergency service three times or more in the month before the Covid-19 outbreak were analysed after the outbreak. Evaluation of the results shows that 83% of the statements made by the families about protecting their children from diseases and the precautions which they follow when the children become sick clearly showed that staying away from enclosed and crowded environments protects their children from contracting diseases. As a result, during the Covid-19 pandemic, the social distancing policy shows us that the restriction on leaving the house for children under 18 is effective.

This study examined the transformed continuous assessment CA scores of Osun State junior secondary schools with a view to providing information on the procedure for transforming CA scores for better comparability of scores among rural and urban secondary schools. The study adopted the ex-post-facto research design. The population for the study comprised all junior secondary school class III students who had CA scores during 2010/2011 session in both rural and urban secondary schools in Osun State. The sample consisted of 1200 students selected using multistage sampling technique. A proforma titled Continuous Assessment Scores Retrieval was used to collect CA scores of the selected students in English Language and Mathematics. Data collected were analyzed using percentages and Pearson’s Product moment correlation statistics. The results showed that the transformed CA scores of rural and urban secondary schools were above the mean score in Mathematics (62.70%) and English Language (66.0%). The result also showed that there was a significant positive relationship between the transformed CA scores and raw CA scores obtained by students in Mathematics and English Language (r=1.00; p<0.05). The results further showed that there was a significant difference in the transformed CA scores of rural and urban secondary schools in Mathematics (t=5.341; p<0.05) and English Language (t=4.395; p<0.05). Finally, it was observed that Osun State Ministry of Education did not use standardized procedures (transformation models) to transform the raw scores submitted by the schools. The study therefore concluded that transformed CA scores of rural and urban secondary schools in Osun State would be comparable if appropriate transformation models were used.
