An investigation has been made to study the usefulness of SCORM based education in flipped classroom through a quasi-experimental design. The coursework assessments are used as a measuring instrument and the coursework assessment scores are statistically analysed. The results of Levene’s test, t-test and Mann-Whitney test reveal that mean of coursework assessment scores of the experimental and control groups are statistically significant. This confirms the Alternate Hypothesis that students who studied using SCORM based lessons (experimental group) attained higher learning compared to the students who did not use the SCORM based lessons (control group).
