Abstract

The study aimed to determine the effects of Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) Movies on students’ achievement and attitude towards chemistry. A total of 233 students from the BS Criminology and BSED Education programs enrolled in a general chemistry course were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The findings of an ANCOVA analysis indicated that students exposed first to CSI movies before the lecture performed better in the achievement test than students who belong to the control group and students exposed to CSI movies after the lecture. Attitude towards chemistry is found to be very positive. However, the attitude of the students did not vary significantly. Properly selected CSI movies may have served as motivation to learn the chemistry concepts. The study recommends the use of well-selected movies and videos to expose students to the application of chemistry concepts in the real world. Moreover, classroom experience must be varied and focused on the latest updates in chemistry and in chemistry education to motivate students for chemistry.
