In this 21st century of Information and Communication Technoiogy, a motivating and captivating approach should
be encouraged to help students better learn. The use of multimedia in education has proven its importance due to its
positive impact on the teaching and learning process. The study investigated the effectiveness of using Multimedia on
students learning outcomes in biology. 180 students were randomly selected from three secondary schools and were
randomly divided into three groups. Pretest-posttest control group quasi experimental design was employed for the
study. The experimental groups was taught with the help of multimedia presentations whereas the control group was
treated traditionally. The treatment was given for a period of 10 weeks. Validated Attitude Towards Biology Scale
(ATBS) was tested for reliability using Crombach alpha which stood at 0.76 and Biology Achievement Test (BAT)
which was also validated was tested for reliability using Kuder Richardson (KR,20), yielded 0.89, were used as data
collection instruments. The data collected were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The results
indicated a statistically significant difference between students learning outcomes and modes of instruction. Students
under Multimedia Aided Instructions had better outcome than their colleagues in traditional teaching method.
Therefore, it is recommended that Multimedia Assisted Instruction should be used in the teaching of biology at
secondary school to improve students' learning outcomes in the subject.
