Abstract

This study intended to determine the effectiveness of a module in Operating System to BSCS III students and was supported by the theories of  Facilitative Learning, Experiential Learning and the Mastery Learning Formula.

The researchers used the pretest-posttest control group design where experimental and control group were chosen to undertake the study to determine the effectiveness of the developed module in Operating System which was validated by five instructors of the College of Computer Science through the use of content validity questionnaire.

The researchers found out that the developed module and test materials were valid since it yielded a grand mean of “much valid” and “very much valid” respectively. It was also found out that the experimental group has significant difference in their pretest and posttest; the control group has no significant difference in their pretest and posttest; and, the posttest of the experimental and control group has significant ¬†difference. The mean gain score of the experimental group was also higher than the mean gain score of the controlgroup. The mean gain score of the experimental and control group yieded a significant difference which implies that the developed module was effective.
