Abstract

The poor performance of students in financial accounting in senior secondary schools necessitated this study to determine the effect of flipped classroom technique on students’ interest in financial accounting in Anambra State. Two research questions were raised and three null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The study adopted quasi-experimental non-equivalent control group design. The population of this study comprise all the 1,876 SS II financial accounting students from six education zones in the 257 public secondary schools in Anambra State. Findings revealed that flipped classroom technique has a higher effect on students’ interest scores in financial accounting than the lecture method and the difference was significant. Flipped classroom technique was more effective in enhancing the interest of male students in financial accounting than female students and the difference was not significant. The study concludes that flipped classroom technique is not only gender-friendly but also an active instructional approach that positively enhances the interest of students in financial accounting. It is recommended among others that management of secondary schools should subject financial accounting teachers to capacity building programmes through workshop, seminar and symposium on flipped classroom technique to enable them learn the rudiments of how to use the technique for teaching financial accounting
