The test was applied on the study sample and the appropriate statistical analyses were conducted. The results indicated that there were statistically significant differences at the significance level (0.05) for the variable of the group in the post measurement as the value of (F) was (18.366) by a statistical significance of (0.000), and the differences were in favor of the experimental group and that there were no statistically significant differences at the level of (0.05) for the variable of gender.
