Effect of Mercedes model with embedded assessment strategy and technology on the learning outcomes of biology students in Lagos Nigeria
Technical University of Varna Annual Journal
This study examines the effect of Mercedes Model with Embedded Assessment Strategy and Technology on students’ learning outcomes in Biology. It is a quasi-experimental study which has adopted a pre-test and a post-test control group design. Four hypotheses guided the study. 568 senior secondary class I biology students from 6 randomly selected schools formed the sample size. Three instruments, namely Mercedes Model with Embedded Assessment Strategy and Technology in Diffusion and Osmosis (M2EASTID and M2EASTIO), Conventional Lesson Plan on Diffusion and Osmosis (COLPOD and COLPO), and Test on Students’ Learning Outcomes in Osmosis and Diffusion (TOSLO2D) were used to generate data for the study. Frequency counts, means, deviation and analysis of covariance were used to analyze the data. The results indisputably suggest that there is a significant effect on students’ learning outcomes and their understanding of fundamental biological concepts. Considered should also be the decisive effect of the subject specialization on the dependent measurable characteristics. Mercedes Model with Embedded Assessment Strategies and Technology therefore, proved to be effective and efficient in significantly improving the students’ learning outcomes. Hence, it is highly recommended that biology teachers in senior secondary schools adopt and integrate Mercedes Model with Embedded Assessment Strategy and Technology into their teaching programmes for understanding and application of biology concepts.
