There were fifty (50) students took the two sets of comprehension test. First, they took the comprehension test as well as the multiple intelligence in the ICT laboratory using the video presentation with classical music background with headset. Another type of comprehension test was conducted through plain text printed in the paper. Students read the story and answered the comprehension test without background of classical music.
The results show that students who read the stories and answered the comprehension examination with the use of classical music as background in the story video , got higher scores compared to the results of students taking the comprehension test without the background of classical music.
