Okoro Alphonsus Uchenna (Ph.D).

Abstract
The study determined the comparative effect of three innovative instructional strategies on achievement of
students in biology. Two research questions and two null hypotheses guided the work. The study was conducted
in Obollo Afor education zone of Enugu State. Four single sex schools out of seven, drawn through purposive
random sampling techniques were used for the study. Two of the schools were for females while the other two
were for males. The instrument for data collection was Biology Achievement Test (BAT). Three intact classes
which were assigned to co-operative, competitive and individualist groups were used for the study. The sample
consisted of three hundred and sixty (360) SSII Biology students. Means and standard deviations were used to
answer the research questions while ANCOVA was used to test the null hypotheses at the 0.5 level of
significance. The study revealed that the three innovative instructional strategies, co-operative, competitive and
individualistic, enhanced achievement of students in biology. It also showed that the average scores for boys
were consistently higher than that of girls in the three groups. Recommendations were made based on the
findings of the study.
