Chemistry Achievement Test (CAT) developed was administered for pre- and post-test during the research. The instrument was subjected to content and face validities to three experts in Chemistry Education research questions and hypotheses were answered using statistical tools of mean(x), standard deviation (SD) and t- test at 0.05 significant level.
