The researchers utilized the descriptive correlational quantitative research design aided by a modified questionnaire. The tool was pilot-tested and underwent Cronbach’s Alpha test with a reliable result. It was distributed to the two hundred (200) randomly selected nursing students of the University of Bohol, College of Nursing, who were enrolled in the academic year 20202021, during which the e-learning educational platform was implemented. The gathered data was subjected to Spearman Rho’s and Chi-square tests to determine the relationship between the respondents’ profiles and the level of effect on the pandemic crisis. Results revealed that the respondents were “Moderately Affected,”, especially in their mental and emotional status. Most of the respondents who were more affected during this pandemic crisis are young adults who are adjusting to the challenges of implementing new educational platforms as they experienced slow connectivity that affected their academic performance. The mobilization of the school’s student services and guidance services is one way of helping the students become adaptive to the challenges they face.</p> 2022-03-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Aprille Kyla T.

Borja Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK) Of Teachers in Relation to the Context and Their Teaching Performance, Loon, Bohol 2023-03-14T02:25:25+00:00 Joshua Relator <p>The Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework, developed by Mishra &amp; Koehler, provide relevant and comprehensive knowledge necessary for 21st-century and technology-oriented teaching. This study chiefly intends to determine the TPACK level in relation to the context and their teaching performance. This study utilized a quantitative-correlational method using a survey research design to gather the TPACK and context levels; and a documentary analysis of the Individual Performance Commitment and Review Form (IPCRF), the school year 2019-2020, to gather the teaching performance. The respondents of the study were the teachers from the public secondary school of Loon, Bohol, with 90 teachers as the sample. The researcher complied with the Research Ethics Committee’s requirements to guarantee the proper observation of the research ethics protocol. Results showed that the teacher respondents had a very high level of TPACK and a very satisfactory teaching performance. The respondents also rated their context with a very high level. In the further analysis of the gathered results, findings revealed that the respondents’ TPACK had a significant relationship to the context, but none to the teaching performance. It also showed that the respondents’ context and teaching performance had an insignificant relationship.</p> 2022-03-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Joshua L. Relator Students’ Level of Stress in Relation to the Academic Performance of Tagbilaran City College 2023-03-14T02:28:09+00:00 Jeanyfer Carcasona <p>The main thrust of this study was to determine the level of stress in relation to the academic performance of Tagbilaran City College. The study utilized quantitative research. The level of stress of the respondents was determined using a modified standardized questionnaire adopted from Cohen &amp; Mermeistein (1983). Percentages, Weighted Mean, Kruskal-Wallis Test, Chi-Square Test, ANOVA, Spearman Rank Correlation, and Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient were used to analyze the data collected. Results showed that the majority of the students were in the age range of 20 – 24 and female. Most of them took the BS Office Administration program, were full-time students and the majority of the respondents were second-year-level. It was revealed that students’ academic performance was interpreted as Very Good in terms of General Education and major subjects. There was an insignificant relationship between Age, Sex, and Course to Level of Stress, but year level was significant to the level of stress. Also, there was an insignificant relationship between Age, Sex, and year level to their Academic Performance, but the course was significant to academic performance. There was no significant relationship between the Level of Stress and academic performance and the study found a significant relationship between the ratings of the General Education subjects and major subjects. Thus, the ratings of the General Education subject can be associated with the major subjects. There is no significant variance between the Level of Stress and the course taken by the students. In addition, there was no significant correlation between the level of stress and sex, which means male and female students have the same level of stress. Moreover, a significant difference between the level of stress and the year level of the students. Second-year students overpowered the First-year students in relation to their level of stress.</p> 2022-03-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jeanyfer E.

This study intends to determine the level of impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the hotel and resort operations in Anda, Bohol. The study used a quantitative research approach utilizing a modified survey questionnaire to gather data. The data were processed using frequency, percentage, weighted mean, Pearson correlation, and chi-square tests. There were 86 respondents randomly selected out of the 102 population at a 95 percent confidence interval at a 5 percent margin of error. The proposal underwent a review by the University’s Research Ethics Committee. The result showed that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as perceived by the owner or manager was very high, which means that the business condition, employment, and operation were highly affected. The result confirmed that there was no significant degree of relationship between the respondent’s profile and the level of impact as perceived by the employees. Thus, the null hypothesis failed to be rejected because the employee’s perception of the level of impact of the Covid-19 pandemic was not affected by their ages, sexes, and work positions.</p> 2022-03-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jemilo L.

To ensure safety as they partake in online classes, the researchers conducted descriptive quantitative research to determine the level of Knowledge, attitudes, and practices toward social media use among nursing students at the University of Bohol (UB). A sample of 200 nursing students currently enrolled in the nursing program from levels 1 to 4 of the school year 2020-2021 was selected through random sampling. Questionnaires and consent forms were administered online. The study underwent an ethics review by the UB-Research Ethics Committee. The findings inferred that most respondents are highly knowledgeable about social media, had a moderately positive attitude towards social media use, and frequently practice it to complete their academic requirements. Findings revealed a significant relationship between the respondents’ Knowledge and attitude, Knowledge and practices, and attitudes and practices. A conclusion was drawn that the respondent’s level of Knowledge and attitudes, their level of Knowledge and practices, and their attitudes and practices were significantly correlated, respectively.</p> 2022-03-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Trisha Elaine V.

Facial expressions, poise, and bearing have an impact on their interaction with the students. Classroom management is a prerequisite to teaching. This study investigates the relationship between college professors’ emotional labor and classroom management practices at the University of Bohol (UB) in Tagbilaran City, Bohol.

The respondents were regular college professors from the 11 tertiary colleges of the UB. The results revealed that college professors had high emotional labor for they are moderately able to manage their emotions during classes and highly practiced their classroom management. Furthermore, results showed an insignificant degree of relationship between the profile of the professors and their emotional labor. Likewise, there was no relationship between the profile and the classroom management practices of the respondents. Results further revealed that the teachers’ emotional labor is not correlated with their classroom management practices.</p> 2022-03-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Jelinda R.
