The study was conducted to determine the effect of teaching approaches in Central Mindanao Computer School, Mlang Cotabato, Philippines. Specifically, this research aimed to determine the effectiveness of the traditional method and the e-learning method in teaching Introductory Accounting Course, and compare the difference in the achievement of students in the traditional method and those in the e-learning method in teaching.[BR]
The research was Pretest-Posttest-Control-Group Design. The two groups of students were randomly assigned to the control and experimental group. The pretest-posttest teacher-made tests were prepared ahead of time, and were tested to be reliable research instruments of the study.[BR][BR]The data gathered from the results of the pretests and posttests scores were analyzed and using a common parametric statistical technique known as t-test fro dependent and independent samples to empirically compare the achievement of respondents in the experimental group and control in terms of pretest, posttest, and gain scores.[BR][BR]The findings or results of the study showed that the pretest and posttest scores of the students in the traditional method differed significantly at 5% level (p<0.
05), and the pretest and posttest scores of the students in the e-learning method differed also at 5% lever (p<0.05).[BR][BR]The comparison of the gain scores showed that the gain score of the experimental group was higher than the control group. The result in the t-test indicated that there was a significant difference in the achievement of the respondents in the control and those in the experimental group at 5% level of significance (p<0.05) with those taught using the e-learning approach as performing better.[BR][BR][BR]An experimental reseach conducted on June 2003 by Dr. Jonathan F.
