In the present study the researchers have tried to explore the effect of cooperative learning-STAD on academic achievement in Chemistry of secondary school students. This is a quasi- experimental study based on simple random design for preparing two groups such as experimental and control group. Total 140 students of class VIII of St. Mary’s school, Bijnor (U.P.) were selected as a sample for the present study. Out of which 70 students were considered in experimental group and were exposed to cooperative learning method while another 70 students were named control group and taught through traditional method (Lecture+Demonstration+Discussion). The students of both the groups were taught one period of 40 minutes per day for 30 days. After that a self made achievement test for chemistry is administered on both the groups. After experimentation Academic achievement test scores were obtained. The data, thus collected, were analyzed through t-test. The results related to this study show that Cooperative learning oriented teaching is significantly effective for increasing the level of Academic achievement in Chemistry.
