The study was guided by four research questions and four null hypothesis tested at 0.05 level of significance. Two research instruments, namely the Computer Achievement Test (CAT) and the Computer Practical Skill Acquisition Test (COMPSAT), which have a reliability of 0.69 and 0.60, using Kuder Richardson formula 20 (KR-20), were used to collect data for the study.
