On this modern era, teachers must consider instructional materials that would be used in teaching. One possible factor that hinders performance improvement is the type of material utilized by the learners. This study aims to observe the effects of the Indigenized teaching and Microsoft – Excel Worksheet as teaching material in Statistics on the performance of the students’. The study carried out using pretest-post-test control group; single blind experimental research design. One College of Teacher Education class divided into two groups was used in this study. There are twelve students’ exposed to teaching Statistics using Indigenized teaching and Microsoft – Excel Worksheet as teaching material and seventeen students’ exposed to not indigenize teaching and calculator as teaching material. The respondents’ group assignment was done by purposive and simple random sampling. The attitude score of the respondents were measured using average weighted mean and described using fuzzy clustering. Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was utilized to compare the pretest and post-test performance of the two groups. Regarding the results, the students’ attitude score towards Statistics is increase after their exposure to the different strategies and the attitude score of experimental group is higher than the control group. It was also found out that the performance of the experimental group is significantly different to the performance of the control group. The study recommends that, Indigenized teaching with the support of Microsoft – Excel worksheet material is an effective teaching strategy to enhance students’ performance in Statistics.
