Team based learning is an amalgamation of various practices - strategically formed teams,
readiness assurance tests, application activities and peer evaluation, that reinforce one another
to achieve an effective instructional effect. We employed team based learning on the teaching
and learning of Electromagnetic Induction to Grade 10 students in National Junior College,
Singapore. A unit plan which includes a pre-reading segment, readiness assurance test
questions, and an application activity was included in the team based learning package. We
found that there is a high level (96.9% of the students) of student engagement in the team
based learning activities, resulting in an increase (96.9% of the students), and deeper (93.2%),
understanding of an AC generator. Students had also responded positively on their perceived
effectiveness of the readiness assurance tests on learning (96.3%), and that the readiness
assurance tests has corrected their mistakes and improve their understanding of the concepts
(96.3%). Overall, the team based learning package on electromagnetic induction has brought
about high students engagement and depth of understanding in the topic.
