Abstract

The study investigated the effectiveness of Co-operative E-learning approach (CELA) on students’ attitude towards Chemistry. The Solomon Four Group, Non-equivalent Control Group Design was employed in the study. The study was carried out in Koibatek sub-county, Kenya where there has been persistent low achievement in the subject. Form three students from twelve county schools, purposively selected from the sub-county were taught the same course content on mole for a period of five weeks. The experimental groups received their instructions through the use of CELA approach and control groups using the conventional teaching method. The researcher trained the teachers in the experimental groups on the technique of CELA before treatment. Student Attitude Questionnaire (SAQ) was used for data collection. One way ANOVA, ANCOVA and t-test were used in data analysis. Hypothesis of the study was tested at level of significance. The results indicated that students in experimental groups outperformed the control groups in attitude towards Chemistry. It was concluded that CELA enhanced better performance in Chemistry than the conventional method. Chemistry teachers should be encouraged to incorporate this method in their teaching and should be included in regular in-service of teachers in Kenya.
