Using “ Self developed Achievement Test in Mathematics” it is found that the (i) Web Based Instruction was found to be significantly superior to Traditional Method for teaching Mathematics when the groups were matched with respect to pre achievement in Mathematics. (ii) Achievement in Mathematics of Boys and Girls was found to be equally well when the groups were matched with respect to pre Achievement in Mathematics. (iii) There is no significant effect of the interaction between Treatment and Gender when the groups were matched with respect to pre Achievement in Mathematics. (iv) Achievement in Mathematics is independent of Caste when the groups were matched with respect to pre Achievement in Mathematics.(v) Achievement in Mathematics is independent of the interaction between Treatment and Caste when the groups were matched with respect to pre Achievement in Mathematics.
