Abstract: In this study, the significant difference in the post-test performance scores of students in 3-dimensional animation (3-D) production using manual animation technique for control group and computer animation for the experimental group were investigated. The researcher examined the quality of students’ animation productions based on the design variables (spatial, dynamics, design, transition and sound attributes) with extrinsic variables (instructional approaches and animation production tasks). The sample consisted of forty undergraduate students drawn from a Nigerian University. A researcher designed 3-Dimensional Animation Production Skill Test (APST), was administered to the students as a pre-test. The experimental group (consisting of 20 students) was taught using computer animation techniques, while the control group (consisting of 20 students) was taught using manual animation techniques. After the treatment, the APST was re-administered as a post-test. Three research questions stated were analysed using the t-test at 0.05 significance level. Findings from the research questions indicated that students who were exposed to computer animation instruction performed better than their counterparts exposed to manual animation instruction. Based on the findings, recommendations were made on the need to improve the quality of instructional material preparations in educational technology setting.
