The Effect of Using Animation Videos for Teaching Science in Elementary Schools During the COVID-19 Pandemic
This study describes the effect of using animated videos on the science learning outcomes of students of SDN Kedondong 2 reinforcement during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study employed a quantitative approach using a pre- and post-test design. A sample of 28 fifth-grade students of SD Negeri Kedondong 2 reinforcement was used. Data were collected via a learning outcome test, where a pretest (initial test) and a posttest (final test) were conducted. The data obtained from the t-count was 14.386; to interpret the t-result, df was calculated: df = N – 1 = 28 – 1 = 27. The df was then consulted on the table for the value of ”t” at a 5% significance level; therefore, with a df of 27, the value of the t-table was 2.033. The t-count was greater than the t-table, that is, 14,386 > 2033. Based on these results, Ho was rejected and H1 was accepted, that is, there was a positive effect of animated video on the science learning outcomes of Kedondong 2 Tulangan Elementary School students during the pandemic.
