The instrument used for data collection in this study was Chemistry Achievement Test (CAT). The reliability of the Chemistry Achievement Test (CAT) was established using Kuder Richardson 21 formula which yielded a reliability coefficient of 0.79. Data obtained were analyzed using mean, standard deviation and ANCOVA. Results revealed that: there was a significant difference between the mean achievement scores of students taught Chemistry using educational technologies and those taught without educational technologies, in favour of those taught with educational technologies, there was a significant sex influence on students’ Chemistry achievement when exposed to educational technologies.
