Main Article Content


The study's objective was to evaluate the effect of the ADDIER and ASSURER models on the academic performance of students. A test was used to collect data from Sunyani Technical University's final-year hospitality students in Ghana as part of the study's experimental research design.  SPSS version 20 was used to manage and process the data. The data were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The study unveiled that the ADDIER and ASSURER models have impact on students’ academic performance.  Comparatively, it can be seen from the values of the effect size statistics that the ASSURER Model has a stronger impact on students' academic performance than the ADDIER Model. The study is important as it has provided empirical evidence on effect of reflection processes on the students' academic performance and expanded literature on hospitality education. It is recommended that the study be repeated with a large sample size in other tertiary institutions to confirm the external validity of the theoretical expansions.
