A study on the effect of experiential learning method on academic achievement in class nine students in English
“Academic performance is based on measurable outcomes such as class exercise, test, and examinations results.” The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of experiential learning method on students’ academic achievement in English. The pre and post-test research pattern with treatment and control groups was used throughout the study. While the experimental group received education through experiential learning method, the control group was taught with a traditional centred approach. The sample consisted of forty students studying in class nine from Govt. High School, Mahmand, Bilaspur, C.G, India. Data collection tools were the English test and academic achievement final test in English. The average scores of students obtained from the academic achievement test increased after the applications, and were (Z: -3.935; Z: -3.630; p<0.01) and the academic achievement scores of the students at the control and treatment groups were finally (U=92.00; p<0.05). As the study concluded, it was found that experiential learning method is an effective approach on academic achievement. The applicability of experiential learning to class nine English curriculum out of teaching curricula rather than those at the schools can be investigated.
