This study aimed to find out the effects of multimedia instructions on the academic performance of students in higher education. It also sought to find out in what areas of linguistic and comprehension skills the students showed excellent and poor competencies.
The experiment was conducted in two non-accredited learning institutions in General Santos City, particularly, the Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Colleges and Holy Trinity College on the second semester, 2002 - 2003. There were 76 subjects for the experimental groups, and 74 subjects for the comparison groups. Pretest-Posttest was administered to the subjects to gather data. T-test, F-test, and DMRT were used in treating the data.
The effect of multimedia instructions on students' linguistic and comprehension skills was significant except one comprehension skill - noting details. The experimental groups showed excellent competence in recognizing the main idea; while the comparison groups did not show excellent competence in any of the skills. They had a poor performance in noting details and sequencing.
Multimedia instruction enhances students' learning when properly applied according to the instructional objectives.
It is recommended that instructional module as well as activities be enriched to enhance the noting details skills of the students.
