Validating The Usability Of Organic Reaction Teaching Model (Ortm): The Experts’ Collective Opinions

Main Article Content

Abdulmalik Sabitu,


There are many procedures to be followed in the validation of teaching models. One of the validation approaches is to find the opinions of the community of experts on the suitability of the model components, and the overall usability using the modified Fuzzy Delphi Technique (FDT). Compared with other sectors, such as technology education, business, and health, the use of FDT to validate components of educational frameworks, models, modules, and curricula was still recent in the field of science education. This research, therefore, validated the components of the organic reaction teaching model (ORTM) based on the shared opinion of experts. Fourteen experts were chosen as panels for the evaluation using FDT. The findings indicate that the organic reaction teaching model components are appropriate and have been highly rated by the experts (d= 98.1%, DV≥9.8). The proposed model constructs provide essential planning guides for model implementation and offered alternative validation procedures for model developers in science education.
