The study investigated the effect of Prezi presentation software (PPS) on the achievement of students in computer studies. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. The study adopted a quasi-experimental design. The population for the study was 2,259 SS II students in Enugu Education Zone, Enugu State, Nigeria. The sample size was 328 students. The instrument used was Computer Achievement Test. The instrument was validated by three research experts. The reliability estimate for CAT was determined using KuderRichardson formula (K-R20). A reliability coefficient of 0.81 was obtained, indicating that the instrument was highly reliable. Mean and standard deviation were used in answering the research questions, while Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) was used for testing the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The findings of the study revealed, among others, that students taught computer studies using Prezi presentation software achieved higher than those taught with expository method. Also, male students recorded higher achievement than their female counterparts. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that teachers should adopt the use of Prezi presentation software in teaching topics in computer studies to enhance students’ achievement. Also, computer studies teachers should be provided with relevant facilities for preparing and teaching their lessons using Prezi presentation software.
