The study investigated the effect of projected video package (PVP) instruction on secondary school studentsâ€™ achievement in computer studies in Onitsha Education Zone of Anambra State. Two research questions guided the study and three null hypotheses were tested at 0.05 level of significance. The quasi-experimental design specifically, the pre-test post-test non-equivalent control group design was used. The population of the study comprised 4,526 senior secondary school year two (SS2) computer studies students in the area of study. A sample of 121 SS2 computer studies students obtained through a multi-stage sampling procedure was involved in the study. The instrument for data collection was Computer Studies Achievement Test (CSAT) validated by two experts in Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka and one experienced computer studies teacher. The reliability of the instrument was established using Kuder-Richardson formula 20 which yielded coefficient of internal consistency of 0.89. The experimental group was taught using PVP while the control group was taught using conventional method. Data obtained were analysed using mean and standard deviation to answer the research question while Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used to test the hypotheses. The findings showed that there was significant difference in the mean achievement scores of students taught using PVP and conventional method in favour of the PVP. The study recommended among others that computer studies teachers should use PVP instruction in the teaching and learning of computer studies.
