The core of this study was to assess the level of performance of Computer-Aided Design as perceived by the respondents in terms of pretest, posttest and daily activities results. Moreover, it aimed to ascertain the level of acceptability of Computer-Aided Design as a method in teaching technical drawing. This was conducted at Mayor Anunciacion R. Tuazon National School of Fisheries, Calunasan, Calape, Bohol during the Third Quarter, School Year 2016-2017. The study employed the experimental static-group pretest-posttest and descriptive design. This design involved two groups, the experimental and control group which received separate treatments. The descriptive design was used to determine the acceptability level in terms of convenience of use, promotion of learning, operation and quality of output. The respondents of the study were the Grade 8 students of MARTNSF Calunasan, Calape, Bohol. The results were then tabulated, interpreted and analyzed. The results revealed that the performance of students in the pre-test, post-test and daily activities in both methods offered students with accelerated rating. The results also revealed that there was no significant difference in the performances of students using the conventional and computer-aided drawing as shown in the pretest, posttest and daily activities. This means that computer-aided design has a parallel result to the conventional. There has been a significant difference between the conventional and computer-aided drawing when it comes to the acceptability level. It was found out that the computer-aided design got a higher rating of 3.065 compared to the conventional method which is 2.877. This finding confirmed that computer-aided design is positively accepted by the respondents. It is concluded that computer-aided design can be an effective tool for instruction, thus beneficial and useful for both teachers and students. The researcher highly recommends the use of Computer-Aided Design as an instructional method to supplement the conventional one as envisioned in the K-12 curriculum by the Department of Education.
