This study investigated the effect of fixed and floating facilitator models of problembased –learning on students psychomotor process skills acquisition in dart manipulation. Two research questions and null hypotheses guided the study. The study adopted a quasi-experimental design. The sample size was 208 Home Ecomics students. The instruments for data collection were Dart manipulation psycho-productive process skill test (DMPPST) and a rating scale. This test was administered to obtain the scores. Data obtained were analysed using mean, while the null hypotheses were tested at .05 level of significance using analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) statistics. Students taught Dart Manipulation using floating facilitator model (PBL) had higher (PPPS) achievement score than their counterparts. Male students taught Dart Manipulation using floating facilitator (PBL) had higher (PPPS) achievement score than their female counterparts. There was no statistically significant main effect (p>0.05) of gender on students (PPPS) acquisition in Dart Manipulation. There was need for clothing and textile teachers to adopt floating facilitator model of (PBL) in teaching psychomotor skills in Dart manipulation at higher institutions in North Central. Based on the findings of this study, recommendations were made.
Key word: Skill-acquisition fix and floating facilitator, problem-based, learning, psychomotor.
