The present study was conducted to investigate the effect of concept attainment model of teaching on achievement in teaching of science among secondary school students. The data was collected using Group Test of General Mental Ability constructed by S.S. Jalota (1972) and Achievement test in Sciences prepared by Investigator. Data included 120 randomly selected students of IX th class from two schools (1 Government and 1 Private) at Aligarh (U.P.). Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to compare the means between the groups. Finding of the study revealed that concept attainment model is effective in terms of achievement of students in teaching of science.
