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 a persistent low achievement in the subject. 489 form three students from twelve county schools, purposively selected from the sub-county were taught the same course content on the mole for a period of five weeks. The experiment 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. The results of the study indicated that students in experimental groups outperformed those in the control groups. Also, there were no statistically significant differences in the mean score in SAQ between boys and girls exposed to CELA. Girls and boys performed equally well in altitudes towards Chemistry. Chemistry teachers should be encouraged to incorporate CELA method.
