Abstract:
This study examined whether Understanding by Design (UbD) is an effective strategy for enhancing Achievement in Physics among secondary school students. The investigators adopted Pretest -Posttest non-equivalent group design for the present study. Eighty students from a secondary school were selected as the sample for the study. Achievement test in Physics was the tool used for data collection. Test of significance of difference between means and effect size cohens' d were the statistical techniques used. Mean difference analysis indicated that the mean post test scores of Experimental and Control groups differ significantly in the Achievement in Physics. In this study the investigator found from analysis that UbD strategy is more effective than constructivism method of teaching. Effect size Cohen's d analysis showed that UbD strategy has a large effect on enhancing Achievement in Physics.
