Impact of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) on Student Achievement in Secondary Physics Course

M.L. Bergantin and J.T. Barretto, “Impact of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) on Student Achievement in Secondary Physics Course”

This paper examines the effectiveness of problem based learning in developing the problem solving skills of students. A pre-test post test control group was adopted for the study. Statistical tests on two hypotheses involving problem solving skills developed using traditional and PBL-based instruction were performed. Results showed that there is no significant difference on the problem solving skills developed using PBL and traditional methods. © 2011 Samahang Pisika ng Pilipinas
