Abstract:

This descriptive – correlational study aimed at determining the school-related factors as correlates of the scientific ability performance in the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE) of the different secondary schools in the Division of Antique for school year 2007-2008. It also sought to find out if there are significant differences in the schools’ scientific ability performance in the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE) when factors such as class size, instructional materials, training of teachers, and type of school are considered. The NCAE scientific ability results of the three hundred sixty (360) randomly chosen fourth year high school students in the Division of Antique for school year 2007-2008 were considered as data sources as well as the responses of science and technology teachers of the randomly selected schools. A researcher-made instrument, duly validated by experts, was pilot-tested at the Division of Guimaras, also a Secondary Education Development and Improvement Program (SEDIP) recipient school division. Statistical tools such as the mean, standard deviation, Kruskall-Wallis Test, Mann-Whitney U Test, Spearman Rank Correlation and Chi-Square were used to treat and analyze the data. All inferential statistics were set at .05 level of significance. The study revealed that in the Division of Antique, the sampled schools’ scientific ability has an “average” performance in the National Career Assessment Examination NCAE) during the school year 2007-2008. No significant difference existed in the schools’ scientific ability performance in the National Career Assessment Examination when factors such as class size, extent of use of instructional materials, training of teachers, and type of school were considered. Moreover, no significant relationship existed in the schools’ scientific ability performance in the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE) when these were classified according to class size, extent of use of instructional materials, training of teachers, and type of school.
