Effect of the Use of Multimedia on Studentsâ Performance in Secondary School Mathematics
The research investigates effectiveness of multimedia on students’ performance in mathematics. Two schools were randomly selected from Educational District V. Intact classes were purposely assigned into experimental and control. Quasi experimental design was adopted. Mathematics Achievement Test with reliability coefficient of 0.81 using KR-20 was used. Data collected were analyzed using ANCOVA. No significant effect exists between the Treatment and achievement in mathematics, the mean achievement score of experimental group was higher than that of control. Also, significant effect did not exist on treatment and gender, but, male have higher achievement mean score (ï¿½ = 57.50) than female counterparts(ï¿½ = 54.13). Multimedia positively influenced the academic performance of students in mathematics.
