A Effectiveness of Kumospace Apps on the Academic Performance of Grade 9 Students in Online Physics Class
Keywords:Kumuspace, Academic Performance, Online Application, Intervention
Kumospace is platform that provides an immersive and fun experience online, designed to recreate physical experience and atmosphere of being in a room, you can move around and connect with others virtually with the simplicity of a video chat and the creativity of video games. This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of Kumospace on the academic performance of Grade 9 students in online Physics class. This research is limited only to two sections in Grade 9, Academic Year 2021-2022. It used the quantitative research design with 30 participants for the control group and 30 participants for experimental group. Pretest and posttest were taken thru google form attached to the learning management system, which were prepared with a TOS ahead and validated by the experts before it was conducted to test. Results showed a high mean score of 3.333, 3.442, and 3.383 respectively, in terms of content quality, learners need and website quality which means that the students strongly agree and are satisfied with the features of Kumospace, while mean scores of the posttest for both sections gave an excellent result. The finding of the study showed that t-test analysis on the effectiveness of Kumospace on the academic performance of Grade 9 online Physics class resulted a p-value of 0.401 which means that they are not significant. Therefore, with consideration of the results, disregarding the H1, it can be concluded that Kumospace is an effective intervention to improve the academic performance of learners in the conduct of online physics classes but cannot be significantly compared to other online applications, specifically Zoom.
