Based on the result of study, the mean score of pre-test (11.10) was lower than post test (13.57). After submitting the data to a paired samples t-test, the present researcher found that there was a significant difference in the mean scores between the pre-test and the post-test, t(df=29) = 16.49 at p  Ë‚ .01, meaning that the null hypothesis was rejected and alternative hypothesis was accepted.
