Abstract: To adjust oneself in modern scientific world, and to understand an environment in which industrial technology and science play an ever more important role, man needs a solid grounding in science. The initial scientific knowledge he has given in the course of regular schooling is no longer enough. From the point of view both of knowledge and of methods, the education must continue throughout his working life. Education is a lifelong process. The growing need for scientific knowledge and training, due to the evaluation of the modern world and the rapid spread of education, has been analysed and is now widely recognized. In face of that need, it would seem logical to give emphasis on the most modern educational technologies, and in particular, to make a wide spread mass use of television techniques, internet, multimedia etc. This study investigated the impact of information and communication technology (ICT) on Achievement of Students in Chemistry at Secondary Level. For the purpose, a list of secondary school of CBSE and U.P. Board are prepared and four institutions were selected with the help of lottery method. The selected samples of four schools were randomly divided into two groups Experimental groups and Controlled groups. The required data was collected at two stages as pre-test and post test scores from the achievement test in chemistry. Data was analysed quantitatively employing statistical techniques of mean, S.D. and t-test.
