Gor, Jeremiah A | Daudu, Bunsheya C "Effect of Concept Mapping and Competitive Instructional Strategy on Basic Science Education Students Academic Performance in Thermal Energy in Ardo-Kola Local Government Area of Taraba State, Nigeria" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-7 | Issue-6, December 2023, pp.206-215, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd60050.pdf

This study was conducted to determine the effect of Concept mapping and competitive instructional strategy on Basic Science students on academic performance in Ardo-Kola Local Government Area of Taraba Statte. Three research questions and hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The quasi experimental research was adopted. The population of the study was 2,228 Upper Basic level students of public schools. The sample was 60 students, consists of (male 32 female 28) selected through a random sampling technique to form two intact classes. Thermal Energy Performance Test (TEPT) was used for the collection of data. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the three research questions, while the three hypotheses were tested with t-test statistic tool. The research revealed that concept mapping has a substantial effect on students’ academic performance in Thermal Energy while gender have no substantial effect on students’ academic performance. Based on the findings of this study, it is recommended that the use of concept mapping teaching strategy should be encourage at upper basic, hence it enhanced better performance. Concept mapping teaching strategy is gender friendly, it should be encouraged among Males and Females students at upper basic level.
