Data collection was conducted through a written test. The findings indicated that the average pre-test score for the experimental class was 79.32, while the average post-test score was 89.58. The results of the independent sample t-test analysis revealed a Sig. (2-tailed) value of 0.000, which is less than the predetermined significance level of 0.05. Consequently, the null hypothesis (Ho) was rejected, and the alternative hypothesis (Ha) was accepted.
