Abstract
This paper proposes twenty-four performance indices contained in the questionnaire that was used for the evaluation of the contributions of some factors to the current performance of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Nigerian universities. The researchers surveyed forty five out of sixty three public universities that cut across the six geo-political zones of Nigeria by administering copies of the questionnaire at meetings with staff and students. The indices, through the responses, were subjected to factor analysis by principal components using Statistical Package for Social Scientists (SPSS). From this analysis, four factors; namely communication and feedback, study aid, processing and administration and management and relationship were extracted and the percentage contribution of each factor to the current performance of ICT in the university system in Nigeria was estimated. It was discovered that the total sum of the percentage contributions was less than 100. This showed that the performance indices of some extraneous factors which contribute in no small measure to the current performance of ICT in Nigerian universities were not given consideration in the research instrument. Such extraneous factors include but not limited to staff training, security of lives and properties, discipline among staff and student, curriculum and government policy on ICT. Moreover, a factor scores coefficient matrix was generated and used to estimate and rank the contribution of each respondent to the performance figure.
