The study examined the influence of instructional simulation strategy on students’ achievement in computer studies in secondary schools in Ezinihite Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State. The general purpose of the study were to: find out the Influence of instructional simulation strategy on achievement scores of students in Computer studies in senior secondary schools in Ezinihite Mbaise Local Government area of Imo State, determine the Influence of instructional simulation strategy on the mean achievement scores of male and females on Computer studies in senior secondary schools in Ezinihite Mbaise Local Government area of Imo State, and to ascertain instruction interaction Influence of gender and method on students mean achievement scores in Computer studies in senior secondary schools in Ezinihite Mbaise Local Government area of Imo State. The study was conducted in Fifteen (15)senior secondary schools in Ezinihite Mbaise Local government area of Imo State. Three research questions and three hypotheses are designed for the study.
The research design used for the study is a quasi-experimental design. Fifteen (15)senior secondary schools were stratified into male and female secondary schools using simple random sampling method. 87 students were selected from the stratified secondary schools by intact classes. Instrument used for data collection are (i) Computer studies Achievement Test (BSAT) developed by the researcher. Research questions are analyzed using an adjusted mean and standard deviation whereas hypotheses are tested using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The result of the study indicates that instructional simulation package method in the teaching and learning Computer studies has a great positive impact on students’ Computer studies achievement. It is against this backdrop that the study recommended that schools should have simulation machines which will help to improve students learning, teachers should be trained on various new ways of teaching in the class instead of still adopting old method of teaching and that there should be constant power supply in schools so as to help in powering the few available simulation machines.
