Teaching and learning through digital technology is currently experiencing very rapid changes. Changes, especially in the reading system can be seen through the use of digital material with technology-based. To achieve that context, this research was carried out to test an interactive reading material for Standard Two primary school student. The experiment group was exposed to the use of interactive multimedia material, while the control group was exposed to the use of conventional material. Quasi-experimental method was used in this study to test Standard Two Student’s achievement in reading comprehension. Data were analyzed by descriptive and inferential methods. Descriptive data are mean and standard deviation. Inferential data were analyzed using ANCOVA statistic. The result showed that there were significant difference between the use of interactive and conventional material when the pre-test is statistically controlled or covariates. The result shows the implication that interactive multimedia reading material makes student more creative and critical in reading. Therefore, it is proposed to the Ministry of Education, Malaysia to intensify the use of interactive multimedia materials in order to improve the achievement of student in reading.
