The study was conducted to determine the effects of educational television program exposure on Chemistry performance of the third year laboratory high school students of Naval State University. Employing the one shot survey design, 111 respondents in Chemistry were involved as subjects of this study. Almost two - thirds (58.4%) of the resp ondents were female. Their family’s mean income posted at P11, 103.30. Generally, they obtained an average grade in General Science and average grade in Biology. They spent a mean of 1.97 hours in studying Chemistry subject. In terms of access to education al television facilities, a big proportion (94.6%) of the respondents owned television set. But only 43.2% had cable subscription. Only 45% watched educational TV shows through the cable channels. Five types of television shows were watched by the students . Most of them watched educational TV shows, but only one - half (52%) had watched Chemistry concepts in the ETV shows. The students revealed the following Chemistry topics as they watched ETV shows: atoms, matter, kinetic energy, chemical change,chemical re actions, elements and compounds, gas laws, solutions and mixtures, phases of matter, colloids, scientific notation, molecules, physical change, molarity and molality, laboratory apparatus, and electrolytes. During the first performance evaluation (pre - test ), the student’s overall total mean score posted at 14.49. Their performance was generally at average level. During the second performance evaluation (post - test), their overall total mean score posted at 17.26. Their performance was at highly average level . A highly significant difference was noted between the first and second evaluation performance of the students, except in the topics of Le Chatelier’s principle of chemical equilibrium and the 2nd law of thermodynamics. Their performance ratings during th e 2nd evaluation were significantly higher than the different topics in chemical change, chemical reaction and reaction kinetics. Among the profile variables tested, only the grade in General Science and grade in Biology found to be significantly related to Chemistry performance. Exposure to ETV programs was not significantly related to the students’ Chemistry performance.
