The Impact of Remedial Class on Students’Learning Achievement
Keywords:Remedial class, impact, students’ learning achievement
The study was designed to find out the impact of remedial class on low-achiever students’ learning achievement and also to explore the learning satisfaction of students towards remedial teaching. The research was an action research. The study employed mixed mode research methodology, which comprised of qualitative and quantitative research methods. Purposive sampling method was used to select the research participants. Students who scored below the bench mark in the class test attended the remedial class in English (class 7) and Geography (class 7 and 8). The instruments for data collection were learning achievement test, semi structured interview, students’ reflective journals, and teachers’ journals. The instruction lasted for four weeks. Quantitative data were collected through learning achievement test to find out the impact of remedial class, while qualitative data were collected through semi structured interview, students’ reflective journal, and teachers’ journal. The quantitative data were analyzed and interpreted using inferential statistics t-test, mean and standard deviation while qualitative data were analyzed using the coding system (open, axial and selective). The finding on students learning achievement showed that the posttest scores of the students were higher than the pretest scores with the significant value, p=0.00. The findings from qualitative data revealed that the impact of remedial class was positive and students were extremely satisfied with remedial class. Therefore, remedial class should be implemented in any instruction for more effective outcomes.
