Collaborative learning is a method of learning in which learners with different performance levels work together in small groups to achieve an academic goal (Gokhale, 1995). This study focused on the effectiveness of NHT in improving the performance of Grade V learners in LE. Results of Pre-test and Post Test of the Experimental and Control group were measured using mean and standard deviation. The acceptability of the hypothesis was tested using t-test and the result of the statistical treatment employed in pre-test the experimental group mean were 8.800 with a standard deviation of 2.25093 while the control group mean and standard deviation were 8.600 and 2.22 in Pre-Test. The mean of the control and experimental group has a slight difference of .200. After the 10 days application of NHT, Post Test was administered, the mean of Post-Test for Experimental Group was 15.900 while 11.400 for Control Group. A 4.5 difference between the results of experimental and control group in their Post-test. Results of paired-samples T-test shows a significant difference in pre-post test results performance, indicated by t-test value of 0.000 less than significance level of 0.05 It can be concluded that the application of NHT improves learners’ performance.
