EFFECTS OF ACTIVITY-BASED APPROACH AND EXPOSITORY METHOD ON STUDENTS ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT IN BASIC SCIENCE.

ODUTUYI, Musili O.

Abstract: The study investigated the effects of activity-based approach and expository method on students academic achievement in Basic Science. The specific objectives of the study were to determine the effect of activity-based approach and expository method on students academic achievement in Basic Science. It also examined the influence of gender on students academic achievement when taught using activity-based approach. The study adopted the pre-test-post-test, control group in quasi-experimental design. Eighty-seven (87) Junior Secondary School two (JSSII) Basic Science students in their intact classes from two purposively selected co-educational schools in Ondo West Local Government Area of Ondo State, Nigeria constituted the sample. The instrument used for collection of data was Achievement Test in Basic Science (ATBS). The co-efficient of reliability of ATBS was 0.76 using a test-re-test technique. The data collected were analysed using Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA). The findings of the study showed that, significant difference existed between the achievement of students exposed to activity-based approach and those taught using the expository method. Learners in the activity-based approach group demonstrated better achievement than their counterparts in expository method group. The results also revealed that, gender had no significant effect on the achievement of students in Basic Science. Based on the findings, it is recommended among others that the government should ensure the provision of good functional laboratories that can serve as venues for the teaching and learning of science concepts, from which activity-based approach can be utilized to improve students academic achievement in Basic Science.
