A t-test, descriptive statistics, and one-way ANOVA statistical techniques were used to analyze the data. The findings suggested that students taught using concept maps being one of the teaching and learning tools had a higher level of motivation and obtained a significantly higher mean score on pre-test compared to post-test (Characters).
