So, the objective of the study was to examine the effect of using ICT on students’ achievement in biology at Secondary level. To address the designed objective null hypothesis “There is no significant difference in the effect of using ICT on students’ achievement in biology of control and experimental group at secondary level” was formulated. The study was delimitated to students of Biology subject of class 9th. True-experimental “Pre-test post-test control group design” was used. The study was carried out in the government high school in Shakarghar, for six weeks.
