Abstract

This study focused on the development and evaluation of Technical Writing modules to develop autonomous learning among students. The modules were based on the needs such as special techniques in technical writing, constructing verbal to non-verbal data, writing conclusions from research findings, writing recommendations for research, stating research problems, among others. Module II was evaluated along subject matter, vocabulary and structures, exercises, illustrations, and physical make-up. Module II was rated “Good” by the control (2.94) and experimental (3.12) students. The English teachers rated the modules “Excellent”. The modules were evaluated fit for the curriculum, for the students and for the teachers and were recommended for use in the Technical Writing class. Researches of similar nature of the study may be conducted to validate the findings of the study.
