Background and Objectives: To compare the impact of Power Point presentation and chalkboard teaching, by assessing the students on marks obtained. Methods: First year MBBS students between 17-19 years of age were selected. One hundred and fifty students were divided into two groups. A selected lecture was delivered to both the groups. For one group lecture was delivered using power point presentation. For second group lecture was delivered using chalk and board method. Single best response multiple choice question paper was used for assessing the knowledge acquired by the students. SPSS version 10 was applied for the statistical analysis. Result: The difference between two groups was found to be significant (p<0.05). Interpretation and Conclusion: The Power Point presentation was found to be more effective than the traditional chalk and board method.
