Validity and reliability of the research instruments were established prior to the implementation. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze data and independent-samples t-test was used to test the difference. Before the experimentation, independent t-test was applied to confirm the equal ability of the two groups. The results showed no difference of the means at 0.05 levels.
