Self Study Materials, Senior Secondary School Students, Learning


The purpose of the study is to determine the effect of self-study material on learning among senior secondary school students by adopting simple random technique. It was hypothesized that there exists a significant effect of self-study learning on achievement of senior secondary school students. The major findings of this study were as the developed Self Study Materials were found to be effective in terms of performance of the students on criterion tests. The developed Self Study Materials were found to be significantly better than those taught through the traditional method. The developed SSM was found significantly better than the traditional method in terms of development of reasoning ability of students in science.
