Abstract: Educational psychology has had various modes of definitions that have been used by educational psychologists such as: scientific study of human behavior as applied in the field of teaching and learning, wherever such activity occurs, with particular focus on what occurs in learning wherever such activity occurs with particular focus on what occurs in learning institutions such as early childhood, primary, secondary, tertiary, and university education educational psychology has a focus on certain important areas of psychology comprising thinking, learning, human development, motivation, assessment of human characteristics, and others. Alexander argues that educational psychology attempts at psychology and education can be integrated in such a manner that it will enhance comprehension of all students. Therefore it can be justifiably argued that for teachers to understand their students’ behavior is essential for effective and successful teaching and learning.
