The results indicated that there are statistically significant differences between the mean of the members of the two experimental groups; and they obtained a general average (9.05) in exchange for the control's obtaining a general average (6.05) in the analytical capabilities scale, while in the post-test of the analytical capabilities, the experimental got a general average of (6,238). In return for the control's obtaining a general average of (5.524).
