    Aim: This study aims to conduct a survey on the effect of teaching aids on the student’s academic performance in professional courses. Introduction: The teaching aids are designed for effective and easier learning of concepts and to have a positive effect on students. These include aids such as pictures, dynamic videos, diagrams, and mind maps. From learning and instruction point of view, the effect of these aids is concerned with cognitive learning. Hence, rather than reading from a textbook to understand a concept, different presentations and practical learning can be done for easier understanding of that concept. Different students will have preferences for different teaching aids. These teaching aids will help students in gaining interest in the subject, consequently showing good performance in their academics. Materials and Methods: A questionnaire is prepared and an online survey is conducted among students studying in Saveetha Dental College to evaluate the influence of teaching aids in their academic performance and to know whether students prefer them to be implemented or not. Results: It was seen that about majority of the student population are aware of teaching aids and about 94% of the students wanted teaching aids to be implemented in the lecture classes by professors. About 66% of the students preferred clay modeling as a good teaching aid and 94% of the students preferred picture cards.Conclusion: The students have positive views about visual aids and majority of the students prefer teaching aids to be implemented by their lecturers in their classes in professional course.
