A statistical treatment was given to the data gathered from 106 college teachers of public and private sectors selected through stratified sampling technique. The test of regression analysis, t-test, one-way ANOVA and two-way ANOVA were applied. It was found that intrinsic and extrinsic variables have positive effects on academic performance of college teachers. As a result of the study, no statistical difference was noted in academic performance of teachers of boys and girls colleges whereas significant difference was found between academic performance teachers of public and private colleges. There was no statistical significance found at the p>0.05 level of academic performance for different cadres of college teachers and also for their teaching experience. However, there was statistical significance noted at the p<0.05 level in academic performance for the public and private colleges. The interaction effect between cadres of college teachers and their experience was not statistical significant and the main effect for these two factors did not reach the statistical significance. The results of the study are interesting and may help in exploring the possibilities of sharing and generating cross-cultural studies among countries of the region.
