Research Topic

Investigation of the Effectual Instructional Method in High

Research Question

What is an effective instructional method that could be used in the classroom environment to improve Mathematics scores of Grade 10 learners in NY.

Research Purpose.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether gamification or online methodologies are suitable for use as classroom instructional alternatives to a traditional pedagogy to improve Mathematics scores of Grade 10 learners in NY public schools?

Research Theory

Cognitive information processing theory.

The theory is based on the idea that humans processes information they receive, rather than just responding to stimuli. Cognitive information processing is used when the learner play an active role in seeking ways to understand and process information that he receives and relate it to what is already known and stored within memory (Piaget,1970)


Gamification is the effective classroom instructional method to positively improve Grade 10 learners’ Mathematics grades.


Independent Variables

Gamification, Online and Traditional groupings.

Data type: Categorical data (Nominal)

Dependent Variables:

Mathematics scores

Data Type: Continuous Data (Ratio)

Target Population

NY Public Schools from all districts.

Sampling Plan

Sample size – 30 participants Within group design (i.e. participants are related (same) in each group)

Cluster Random Sampling – These participants will be selected from all NY Districts using cluster random sampling method.

Research Design

Within Group Experimental Design

Short design Description

I am going to recruit 30 Grade 10 Mathematics learners from NY public schools using cluster random sampling as participants in this study. The participants will receive treatment of a classroom instructional method each week i.e. Gamification, Online and Traditional method respectively. After each instructional exposure, the participants will be served with a standardised Mathematics test. In each iteration, the test administered will be different but the level of difficulty will not vary.

Finally, write the Results section.

4. Discussion (3pages)

This chapter synthesizes and discusses the results considering the study’s research questions, literature review, and conceptual framework. Finding patterns and themes is one result of analysis. Finding ambiguities and inconsistencies is another. Overall, this chapter offers the researcher an opportunity to reflect thoroughly on the study’s findings, and the practical and theoretical implications thereof. This chapter also presents a set of concluding statements and recommendations. Conclusions are assertions based on findings and must therefore be warranted by the findings. With respect to each finding, you are asking yourself, “Knowing what I now know, what conclusion can I draw?” Recommendations are the application of those conclusions. In other words, you are now saying to yourself, “Knowing what I now know to be true, I recommend that
