The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between laboratory based teaching methods on science education and student success, by using meta-analysis. This paper used the research results which were reported from 2000 to 2012 years in Turkey which analyzing the effects of laboratory based teaching methods on student success. By the meta-analysis methods, one PhD dissertation, 17 Master’s theses and 12 published articles were the main sources of this paper used to demonstrate the influence of laboratory based teachings on science education. Thalheimer also showed that laboratory based teaching in a significant degree affects academic success. The results demonstrate that laboratory based teaching methods significantly influence academic success +2,8729 size.
