The results depict that in - service training has significant positive effe cts, in favour of trained teachers, on dimensions of classroom practices: teachers response and treatment/ pupil - teacher interaction students attentiveness; activities during lesson / scope for interaction among pupils; and student evaluation and textboo k usage.
