Year: 2016

            The study sought to determine principals’ management of teachers and physical plant in the central schools in the PALMA area, SY 2014-2015. Specifically, it determined the following: pupils’ Mean Percentile Score (MPS) in the central schools under study; performance rating of the teachers in the central schools under study; the level of competence of school principals in the management of teachers and physical plant in terms of: planning, organizing, actuating, controlling, and maintaining; the condition of school physical plant in terms of: school ground, buildings, classrooms, and facilities; the significant relationship between the teachers’ performance rating and the mean percentile score of the pupils; the significant relationship between the level of competence of principals in the management of teachers and the teachers’ performance rating; and the significant relationship between the level of competence of principals in school physical plant management and the conditions of physical plant.

            Ex-post facto design was used in the study. The extraneous variables such as socio-economic status, homogeneity and/or heterogeneity and social setting were controlled by employing complete enumeration. The respondents consisted of 376 teachers of the central schools in PALMA area during the school year 2014-2015. Pertinent data were obtained from the following sources: (a) Mean Percentile Score (MPS) of pupils; (b) Teachers’ Performance rating; (c) Assessment tool for managing teachers; (d) Assessment tool for physical plant management; and (e) Assessment tool for the condition of school physical plant. Mean, standard deviation, ANOVA and Pearson Product-Moment Correlation were used to analyze the data.

            The outcome of the study showed that there is a significant difference on the MPS of pupils among the fourteen (14) central schools under study. The teachers’ performance ratings significantly differed at 0.01 significance level across central schools.

            Furthermore, there is a very weak negative linear relationship between the teachers’ performance rating and pupils’ MPS between the school principals’ competence in the management of teachers and the teachers’ performance ratings. Finally, the management competence of the school principals was found to have a moderate to high positive linear correlation to the condition of the physical plant.

            This shows that the principals’ management of teachers and physical plant in relation to pupils’ mean percentile varied across central schools under study. The competence levels of principals’ management in all functions are necessary in creating the enabling conducive condition of physical plant thereby enhancing a corresponding MPS and performance in the teaching-learning process.

            Ang isinagawang pag-aaral ay naglalayong matukoy ang impluwensya ng Gay Lingo sa pakikipagtalastasan ng mga mag-aaral ng Grade 7 ng Southern Christian College. Nabigyang kalutasan sa pananaliksik na ito ang katangian ng mga respondente, ayon sa gender at edad, bahagdan ng mga salitang Gay Lingo na alam ng mga respondente sa wikang Filipino, paggamit ng mga respondente sa mga salitang Gay Lingo, at ang lawak ng impluwensya ng Gay Lingo sa pakikipagtalastasan ng mga respondente ayon sa gender at edad.

            Ang pag-aaral na ito ay ginamitan ng mga mananaliksik ng deskriptibong disenyo upang masuri at masiyasat ang mga nakalap na datos o impormasyong kakailanganin sa pag-aaral ng mga Grade 7 na mag-aaral. Ito ay kinabibilangan ng mga babae, lalaki at bakla na may edad 11-12, 13-14 at 15 pataas na may kabuuang bilang isandaan tatlumpu’t tatlo (133).

            Napatunayan sa isinagawang pagsusuri ng mga mananaliksik na minsan o katamtaman lamang ang impluwensya ng Gay Lingo sa pakikipagtalastasan ng mga mag-aaral ng Grade 7 ng SCC. Ito ay dahil ang mga mag-aaral ng Grade 7 ay malimit lamang makipagtalastasan sa kanilang kapwa. Kaunti lamang ang oras ng mga mag-aaral na inilalaan sa pakikipaghalubilo. Ito ay kung oras ng recess sa umaga na may tatlumpung minuto, isang oras sa pananghalian at recess sa hapon na may labinlimang minuto. Kung oras naman ng pananghalian, nasa loob lamang sila ng paaralan, ayon na rin sa alituntunin ng SCC-HS na hindi pwedeng lumabas ang mga mag-aaral upang maiwasan ang palagiang pagliban sa klase sa hapon. Base sa isinagawang pag-aaral ay nagpapakta ng katamtaman ang impluwensya ng Gay Lingo sa pakikipagtalastasan ng mga mag-aaral ng Grade 7.

            This study was conducted to determine the strategies in teaching reading applied by Grade 1 teachers in selected three public and three private schools in Midsayap, Cotabato. Specifically, it aimed to determine the teachers’ strategies used in teaching reading to Grade 1 pupils; find the most effective strategies as perceived by the teachers and the frequency of use of the strategies; determine the problems encountered by the teachers in teaching reading; and find the differences in the strategies used in teaching reading between the teachers in private and public schools.

            Seven among the 12 strategies which were found to be very effective as reported by the public school teachers were using sound symbols, using pictures, using textbooks, using charts, introducing initial sound sorting, using initial sound blending and using short vowel pattern. In the private schools, two among the 12 strategies which were found to be very effective were sound symbols and using initial sound blending.

            Further, three of the 12 strategies in teaching reading which were always used by the public school teachers were using pictures, introducing initial sound sorting and using initial sound blending. Among the private school teachers, they were always using textbooks, introduced initial sound sorting and used initial sound blending.

            The problems reported by teachers were that the parents did not help in teaching their children how to read at home and that some pupils did not have preschool education. Because of these, the pupils had a hard time reading even simple words.

     This study aimed to determine the level of mathematics performance of 101 Grade 7 students of Tubak High School. Specifically, it determined the socio-demographic profile of the respondents in terms of sex, ethnic affiliation, parents’ educational attainment, and parents’ combined monthly income.

     The data were gathered through a descriptive survey using a biographic data form for the respondents’ socio-demographic profile, and through respondents’ mathematics teacher who kept the records of their performance.

     The results revealed that in terms of the respondents’ socio-demographic profile, majority were female, Ilonggo, with both       parents who reached high school level, and with a combined monthly family income of PhP 5,000 and below.

     The result further revealed that the respondents had a mean mathematics performance of 81.80 with a standard deviation of 2.6 and a corresponding descriptive rating of Approaching Proficiency (AP) in terms of their level of proficiency in the subject. Additionally, the data showed that majority (68.3%) of the respondents had grades of 80-84%. These had a learning outcome rate in mathematics of “AP” which meant that the students had developed fundamental knowledge and skills, had core understanding and little guidance from the teacher, and/ or with some assistance from peers, can transfer such understanding through authentic performance tasks.

     The respondents’ level of mathematics performance in relation to their socio- demographic profile was further analyzed. The t-test results revealed that there was no significant difference in the level of mathematics performance of the respondents when grouped according to sex. This meant that in terms of their mathematics proficiency, the male and female Grade 7 students in Tubak High School were almost the same.

     Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to analyze the difference in the respondents’ level of mathematics performance when grouped according to their socio-demographic profile. The result revealed that the respondents differed in their level of performance when grouped according to their affiliation, mother’s educational attainment, and father’s educational attainment and according to their parents’ combined monthly income. This result implied that Grade 7 students in Tubak High School differed in their mathematics performance based on their ethnic affiliation and parents’ educational attainment.
