This paper investigated the effects of multimedia technology on instructional delivery in commerce in senior secondary schools in Bida metropolis. The sample consisted of forty-nine (49) students chosen for the study. Quasi experimental design was adopted for the investigation and intact classes where used for data for both the experimental and control groups. The instrument used for data collection was Commerce Achievement Test (CAT) which was validated by experts from (NECO) and Industrial and Science Education Department, Federal University of Technology Minna.  The reliability coefficient was 0.57 for pre-test and 0.68 for post-test respectively. One research question and one corresponding hypothesis were stated. Mean and standard deviation was used to analyze research question 1, while t-test was used to test and analyze the only hypothesis.  The finding revealed that experimental group performed significantly better than the control group. Based on the findings it was recommended among other things that governments should make a deliberate policy on the integration of Multimedia Technology in teaching Commerce in Secondary Schools.
