Abstract
This study sought to find out the effects of the video-assisted instruction in the performance in Science and Health of grade 6 pupils at Naawan Central School. The subject consisted of 40 pupils who were grouped equally into the control group (the lecture method) and the experimental group (the video-assisted instruction) based on their performance in the pre-test. The instrument used in this study included the self-made test questionnaire, the lesson plans, the self-made visual aids, and the video clippings. Simple descriptive statistical tools such as the percentage, the mean, and the t-test to compare the performance of the pupils were utilized. The pre-test scores of the pupils showed that majority of the learners had prior knowledge already considering the fact that 50% of them obtained almost one-half of the test items in either of the methods used. While the result of the post-test scores signified that pupils had learned from the teacher’s discussion as shown in the increase of their post-test scores. The increase in their scores pointed that pupils had processed and understood the science concepts. The result showed that there is no significant difference (p=0.85 and t= 0.19) in the pre-test scores of the pupils taught using the video-assisted instruction and the lecture method in teaching Science and Health. Also, the result manifested that there is no significant difference in the post-test scores between video-assisted instruction and lecture method (p= 0.60, t=0.53).However, the result showed that there is a significant difference between the pre-test scores and the post-test scores of the pupils taught using the video-assisted instruction and the lecture method,(p=1.12E-10, t=1.79) and (p=1.30E-12, t=1.73), respectively .Consequently, several trials should be made in order to compare the effectiveness of using videos in other countries and in the Philippines.
