Abstract


This study was conducted to explore the effect of Multimedia Instruction on academic achievement and development of attitude of secondary level students towards chemistry. An experiment was conducted with 10th class students studying Chemistry at Government Higher Secondary School Nawanshehr Abbottabad. Multimedia Instruction program was developed by the researchers using text, video and animation mode of presentation, covering four chapters from the text book of Chemistry for 10th class. Pretest post-test control group design was used to carry out this study. The students studying chemistry in selected school were assigned to two groups having 35 students in each group using matched random sampling technique on the basis of pre-test scores. For pre-test and post-test ,an achievement test including one hundred test items of multiple choice and an attitude scale with fifty items on five point Likert type scale were used as data collection tools before and after experimentation. To determine the difference between the mean achievement and attitude scores of Experimental and control group students, t-test was used. Findings of this study revealed that performance of the students of experimental group was significantly better than the students of control group in all the achievement domains i.e. Domain of knowledge, comprehension and application and the development of attitude towards chemistry as well. Multimedia-based instruction proved to be better way of instruction than the conventional method.
