This paper attempts to study the usability aspects of introducing Animated Pedagogical Agents (APA) in multimedia application for statistical education. The application was developed with two agents; male and female to accompany students in their learning process. The students were given a choice to choose the most preferred agent to accompany them. We wanted to identify the most preferred animation type. The application was built and tested on 82 undergraduate students from Universiti Teknologi MARA, Shah Alam. The participants were only required to learn Numerical Descriptive Measures via APA approach of learning and a usability questionnaire was distributed after viewing the learning application. The usability study looks at the aspects of Perceived Ease of Use, Perceived Usefulness, Satisfaction, Behavioural Intention to Use, Value and Attitude towards the use of APA in learning Statistics. The study had identified that female APA was the preferred animation type. A detailed result of the usability study is discussed in this paper.
