Medical Vocabulary-Building among First Year Allied Medical Sciences Students

Maria Charito Lea U. Saxton, MAEd


The researcher conducted the study to enhance the learning process inside the classroom. The purpose of this research is to: 1) investigate the performance of Allied Medical Sciences freshmen in using anatomical terms; and 2) evaluate the effect of intervention schemes. After a pretest administered to 30 Allied Medical Sciences students enrolled in Anatomy and Physiology I, the students were subjected to some interventions like vocabulary-building, demonstration and group dynamics. After the intervention, the students were given a post-test. The scores from the two tests were compared using the T- test formula. The results indicate that there is a significant difference in the pretest and post- test scores.
