Niño Fredrico L. Narvacan, Evangeline Atienza-Bulaquiña, and Lucille D. Evangelista

Abstract—This study investigated the effects of visualization on college students’ academic performance. One control group and two experimental groups were utilized. The participants were the first year Bachelor of Science in Psychology students of Batangas State University. Results obtained from the experiment showed that visualization has no significant effect on the academic performance of the two experimental groups. However, grade improvements were higher in these treatments compared to the control group. The students’ performance before and after the visualization showed a computed p-value of 0.16 and 0.20 respectively, higher than 0.05 level of significance which failed to reject the null hypothesis. On the other hand, the control group showed significant effect which yielded a p-value of 0.009 lower than the 0.05 level of significance. The results also showed a chi-square value of 0.163 for experimental groups 1 and 2 which made the two approaches equally significant in improving academic performance.
