This study is conducted to determine the effectiveness of the Gradual Release of Responsibility (GRR) Model in increasing the academic performance of students&nbsp;in science class. A quantitative quasi-experimental research approach was used to test the effectiveness of the&nbsp;said&nbsp;learning model. A control group and experimental group with 30 students each were involved in this study utilizing the Inquiry-Based Seven (7) E’s Method and GRR&nbsp;Model,&nbsp;respectively. Results show that there is no significant difference between the two groups in the pretest given the values t(58)=0.345 and p-value=0.731 which signifies that both groups were then at low-performing levels. There is a significant difference between the two groups on the result of the post-test&nbsp;given the values t(58)=-9.309 and p-value&lt;0.001. The experimental group got a mean percentage score of 87.22 at high performing level while the control group got 59.11 at low performing level. Lastly, there is a significant difference between the incremental scores of the control group and experimental group with the values t(58)=-6.813&nbsp;and p-value&lt;0.001. It is concluded that the use of the GRR&nbsp;Model is very effective in increasing the academic performance of students with the least learned competency&nbsp;(i.e., Newton’s Second Law Motion). Students exposed to such a model did make a significant improvement from low-performing to high-performing level. &nbsp;Hence, this article&nbsp;recommended that the GRR model must be applied especially in the least learned&nbsp;areas since it is an&nbsp;effective teaching method&nbsp;to improve students’ academic achievement.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Asian Journal of Assessment in Teaching and Learning}, author={Fuentes, Aileen Grace and Casinillo, Leomarich}, year={2024}, month={Mar.}, pages={15–24} }
