This study investigated the relative effect of computer simulated instruction on Achievement of students in Physics using type of school and gender as moderator variables. Simple random sampling technique was used to select 60 students from both private and public senior secondary schools in Lagos Mainland Local Government Area and Ojo Local Government Area respectively. The study adopted a pre-test post-test control group quasi-experimental research design. A validated Physics Achievement Test (r=0.78) was used for data collection. The study lasted for six weeks. The data collected were analysed using one way ANOVA and t-test. The results showed a significant effect of computer simulated instruction on students' achievement in physics, and a significant main effect of school type. However, gender had no effect on performance varied on simulated instruction on students' achievement in physics. The study also established that computer simulated instruction enhanced senior secondary school students in physics; performance varied on account of school type and gender had no effect on performance. The use of computer simulated instruction was recommended for the teaching of physics so as to improve performance in physics at the senior secondary school level.
