Test-re-test method and estimation ofinternal consistency was used to ascertain the reliability. The reliability co-efficients of 0.73 and 0.75 were obtainedrespectively. The study generated four hypotheses that were tested at the significance level of 0.05. ANOVA andANCOVA statistical tools were used to analyse the data collected. The study found that there was a significantdifference in the pre-test and post-test of students in the experimental group. The study also found that gender effectwas not statistically significant in social studies. The study concluded that students who were taught withinstructional materials performed better than those taught without.
