Abstract

Motor Vehicle Mechanics Work has been noted to be important to man because of the advantages attached to application. Efforts are also geared towards its success in teaching and learning outcome. However, there is poor academic achievement and interest of students in Motor Vehicle Mechanics Work. This has largely been blamed on teaching methods and strategies, inability of students to understand Motor Vehicle Mechanics Work, lack of student’s interest among others. The purpose of this study was to empirically investigate the effect of related video supported teaching technique on interest achievement and of Motor Vehicle Mechanics Work students in Science and Technical Colleges. Four research questions were raised and four hypotheses were formulated. Quasi-experimental design, the non-equivalent control group were used. The sample was comprised of all the SS2 46 (36 male and 10 female) students studying Motor Vehicle Mechanics Work in two Science and Technical Colleges in Benue State selected for the study. Motor Vehicle Mechanics Work Achievement Test (MVMWAT) and Motor Vehicle Mechanics Work Students Interest Inventory Scale (MVMWSIIS) were the instruments that were used for the study. The Cronbach Alpha coefficient for the items in the MVMWSIIS instrument was calculated and found to be 0.785 and the Cronbach Alpha coefficient for the items in the MVMWSAT was 0.740 which indicated that the instruments were both reliable. Data collected was analyzed using mean and standard deviations to answer research questions and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) to test hypotheses. The results of pre achievement mean and standard deviation of the control group was 2.76 and 1.62, respectively, while the post achievement mean and standard deviation scores of the group was 13.38 and 2.92 respectively. Whereas the pre experimental group mean and standard deviation score was 2.68 and 1.28 respectively, while the post mean and standard deviation were 15.36 and 3.82 respectively. The results of pre interest mean and standard deviation scores of the control group was 27.95 and 4.33 respectively, while the post group was 28.76 and 4.37 respectively. Whereas the post experimental group mean and standard deviation was 7.40 and 2.81 respectively, while the control group mean and standard deviation were 58.71 and 4.62 respectively. Interest and achievement scores of the students showed that related video supported teaching technique enhances student’s interest and achievement. Based on the findings of the study, conclusions were drawn that student taught using related video supported teaching technique had achievement significantly higher than those taught using lecture method, imbalance in achievement and interest of male and female students was minimized to the barest minimum. The study therefore recommends that, related video supported teaching technique strategy should be used in the field of Motor Vehicles Mechanics Work for achievement and interest.
