Dr Sunday Eje Edo | Eruh Akpong Benjamin


Abstract: This study investigated the effects of study question strategy and senior secondary two students achievement in prose fiction. It also examined the effects of gender on students achievement in prose fiction. Two research questions and two null hypotheses guided the research. The study used a non randomised quasi-experimental pre-test and post-test design. Multi-stage sampling technique was used in selecting schools, gender and 360 students drawn from six public secondary schools in Otukpo and Oju Local Government Areas in Zone C of Benue State. Prose Achievement Test as instrument was used for data collection. The reliability coefficient of the instrument was obtained from pilot study test scores using Kuder Richardsons formula 21 and it was found to be 0.78 %. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer research questions and ANCOVA was used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings revealed that students taught prose fiction using study question strategy significantly achieved higher mean scores (F = 31.135, p = 0.000) than those taught prose fiction using the conventional method. Male and female students exposed to study question strategy in prose fiction did not significantly differ in the mean achievement (F =.082, p =.775). Based on the findings, the study recommended among others, adequate training of prose teachers in the use of study question strategy in teaching prose fiction at secondary school level.
