In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are a variable of academic performance. However, at this point in time, there searchers would like to investigate the possible relationship of study habits and the factors affecting it to the academic achievement of under graduate Computer Science students of University of Southern Mindanao. The investigation of on this area thus becomes a real and compelling motivation for the researchers to conduct this study.
B. Conceptual Framework
Independent Variables Dependent Variables
Independent variables as it influence the dependent variable of this research are on the bases of psychological and educational theories principles and concepts. Many studies say that learning are better acquired and mastered as soon as the learner attends to it. Gestalt psychology mentions the Law of Proximity referring to the way in which he tends to form groups according to the way they are spaced, with the nearer once being grouped together (Tria,et.Al., 1998). As applied to learning, this refers to the closeness in space or in time. Furthermore, it explains why it is easier to remember recent events and hence more easily joined with the interest of the present in a common Gestalt (tria, et. Al., 1998). In application to learning process, immediate and regular study periods and doing school requirements tend to result in a better performance than delayed and erratic study periods do. Diverse study techniques, even for the improvement of memory stress the importance of immediacy in remembering and learning.
When a modifiable connection between a situation and a response is not being use over a period of time, the strength of that connection is weakened. A behavior that is stimulated over regular periods will tend to be repeated leading to habit formation. A student who has developed this kind of behavior, in this case, in terms of having regular and scheduled study periods and follows certain methods in studying proves to have better performance.
The study focuses on the factors affecting study habits, influencing the academic performance of the student. In this view, the researchers wanted to study the factors in which affect the study habits.
C. Statement of the Problem
1) What is the profile of the respondents according to:
1.1 Time management
1.2 Learning Skills
1.3 Study Skills
2) What extent of influence did the independent variables have on student study habits?
3) Did the independent variables significantly influence students study habits?
These factors do not affect the study habits among Computer Science students.
The proposed research will determine the common factors affecting study habits among Computer Science students. The result of this study...
