Abstract: This study investigated the influence of achievement levels on the performance of students taught using manual and computer animation production techniques. The researcher compared the pre-test and the post-test scores of the student by investigating the quality of studentsí animation productions based on their achievement levels (High, medium and low) in the pre-test. The sample consisted of forty undergraduate students drawn from two Nigerian universities. A researcher designed 3-Dimensional Animation Production Skill Test (APST), was administered to the students as a pre-test. The experimental group (consisting of 16 students) was taught using computer animation techniques, while the control group (consisting of 24 students) was taught using manual animation techniques. After the treatment, the APST was re- administered as a post-test. Two research questions and two research hypotheses were analysed using the Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and Duncan Multiple Range Test. Findings revealed that students with high achievement level performed better than their counterparts in manual and computer animation instructions. Based on the findings, recommendations were made on the need to improve the quality of instruction in Educational Technology and Fine Arts.
