Four secondary schools were selected out of the fourteen secondary schools in Abakaliki offering financial accounting. Two schools were assigned to the treatment group while the other two were assigned to the control group. A total of one hundred and sixty-three (163) students offering financial accounting were used for the study. Two instructional packages were developed, one for the treatment group and the other was subjected to the conventional method of teaching financial accounting.
