The aim of present research was to Effect of Treatment, Scientific Aptitude and their interaction on Academic achievement of learners by taking pre-academic achievement scores as covariate. In this study the Senior Secondary schools of Banasthali, Rajasthan was considered as the population of the study. From these senior secondary schools one of senior secondary school of Banasthali, Rajasthan was randomly selected for the study. Test Battery developed by K.K. Agarwal and Saroj Aurora meant to access scientific aptitude of high school students was found appropriate. Although this tool was developed and standardized in 2012, the items were found to be relevant to the current study. The results indicated that the Null Hypothesis that there is no significant effect of Treatment on Academic Achievement of Learners when Pre-Academic Achievement was taken as covariate is rejected and the null hypothesis that there is no significant effect of Scientific Aptitude on Academic Achievement of learners when Pre-Academic Achievement is taken as covariate is not rejected. It may, therefore, be said that Academic Achievement of learners was found to be independent of Scientific Aptitude when Pre-Academic Achievement is taken as covariate.
