Obikezie, Maxwell Chukwunazo | Abumchukwu, Adanna A | Chikendu, Rebbeca Ebonam "Effect of Contextual Teaching-Learning Approach on Students’ Retention in Chemistry in Secondary Schools in Anambra State" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-5 | Issue-3, April 2021, pp.404-408, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd39864.pdf

The study investigated the effect of contextual teaching-learning approach (CTLA) on chemistry students’ academic retention in secondary schools in Anambra State, Nigeria. A pre-test, posttest quasi-experimental design was used involving a sample of 130 students drawn from six education zones in the state. The instrument known as contextual learning chemistry retention test (CLCRT), validated by two experts with a reliability coefficient of 0.84 was used for data collection. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions, while t-test was used to test the null hypotheses at P<0.05. The result revealed that CTLA had significant effect on students’ academic retention in chemistry. Finding implies there is need for chemistry teachers should adopt the use of contextual teaching-learning approach to improve the performance of students in chemistry.
