This study investigated the effects of Computer Assisted Instruction Package on Secondary School Students’ Achievement and interest in biology. Four research questions guided the study and four hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. A quasi-experimental design was adopted, The sample consisted of 120 senior secondary year two (SS II) Biology students. Two instruments namely Biology Achievement Test (BAT) and Biology Interest Scale (BIS) were used for data collection. A reliability of 0.81 and 0.86 were obtained using Pearson Product Moment correlation coefficient for BAT and BIS respectively. While 0.75 and 0.86 were obtained using Kuder Richardson formular 21(KR-21). The data collected after the treatment were analyzed using means,standard deviation and ANCOVA. The result showed that CAIP had significant effects on students’ achievement and interest in biology. The result also showed that Gender was not a significant factor in students’ overall achievement and interest in biology when taught biology using CAIP. The implications of the findings of this study is that biology teachers should use CAIP in teaching biology to both male and female students so as to enhance their achievement and interest in biology.
