Abstract

Most likely, every student transcends their limitations nowadays. They juggle time in working, education, and social life. For what reason that is, well, they do this in order to be able to pay up for education expenses. Some others just do this to earn a little extra spending money, for them to be able to buy something which they want to avail without them begging their parents for it.

Basically, part time work is their only choice to get that money they need if they do not have student loans offered at their university. Some students need to pay up for rent, tuition, and etc. Working part time gives them the money and the thought of realizing how important it is. They are also provided with the thought of handling their responsibilities very well if they work part time during college days.

Indeed, working while studying can be tough to handle. It forces you to manage your time and your responsibilities. Sometimes, it makes you choose between the two. Students today tend to sacrifice their time for social life to earn some extra spending cash. They end up being way too busy to have a social life. They don’t even have enough time to sleep which affects their daily performance at school. They juggle these responsibilities for a few income or profit. They do all of that for money.

High School Students in Part-Time Employment: What Effects on Scholastic Performance?

...High school students in part-time employment: What effects on scholastic performance? Educators in the United States have long argued about the effects of part-time work on the academic performance of high school students. Though many studies claim that there is a relationship between a student’s grade point average (GPA) – the standard measure academic performance in high schools and universities in the US – and the number of hours the students is employed, there seems little agreement on what that relationship is. Several studies (Sneider, 1982; Wallace, 1988; Johnson and Payne, 1989) suggest that students who work after school do better in their school work than students who do not have a job. Peel and Maas (1990), meanwhile, suggest that students with part-time job generally do worse than their classmates who do not work at all. Still other research claims the amount of hours worked outside school hours is of very minor importance; much more important in influencing a student’s performance in school are the student’s habits and home life (Alvares, 1987). Of seven major studies on high school students in employment received by Bjarnes and Doi (1990), four studies specifically investigated the relationship between scholastic achievement and part-time work. Of these, two concluded that students who work beyond a certain amount of hours per week tent to have generally lower GPAs (Walson and Yin, 1990; Corbelli, 1989). These two studies......

BENLOT, ZENNY T. FIESTADA, NATALIE JANE F. BBTE III-3D SUBMITTED TO: DR. CAROLINE SUMANDE I. INTRODUCTION College is a very big environment to be adopted by new students. In order for them to adjust in this kind of environment, they tend to socialize in the many activities inside the institution. But in socializing with the different people and communities inside the campus has also an effect on their academic performance. Those social factors include organizations, fraternities, sports activities, and romantic relationships. Students socialize more often in college because it is a big community that needs the culture and rules to be learned or else a student will be left behind on what to do inside the institution. These rules and culture cannot be found only in books. It can be also found and learned through interaction with the co-learners and the teachers because there are times that the rules are changing based on the time, place, and people. But there are still some students who tend to explore more on the campus by joining the said social activities. The negative side of their participation in these activities is that they have a tendency to give more time than to study and do other academic......

Since then, the computer/video game industry has become one the most aggressively growing business sectors in the United States and in the whole world. Obviously, games are emerging as one of the most dominant forms of entertainment. This trend goes further as of the increasing penetration of high speech Internet connection and the declining prices of computers, video-game consoles, and mobile entertainment devices.

Pila Instructor Submitted by Alfredo B. Paghasian Jr. Gener Michael Barbarona Students January 22, 2016 Table of Contents Chapter 1 Introduction 1.1 Background & Rationale/Purpose 1.2 Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION Study habits are the most influential factor that contributes to a positive or negative academic performance of a student. Habits refer to an act that is repetitively done by a certain person, while study means to gain knowledge and information. Thus, study habits are habitual actions that are done in order to gain learning. And as asserted by Bruce Tuchman(1975) that performance is used to label the observable manifestations of knowledge, skill, concepts and understanding an idea. Hence, it indicates the students’ ability, mastery of content, skills in applying, learned knowledge to a particular situation. In the areas of learning mentioned, many students fail and perform poorly for they lack of good study habits. In addition, time management is an important factor when it comes to studying.

PIEDAD, JESIRYL V. CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Rationale English, the second language in Philippines plays an important role as a means of communication in many parts of the world, and is considered important in order to absorb and develop technology, art and culture and also to maintain good relationship with foreign country. English is also the tool to communicate and interact with foreign people and international audiences. English has been acknowledged as the medium of great deal of the world’s knowledge (Crystal, 1999). In this case, the educational institution plays an important role in supporting the teaching of English. In learning English, there are four language skills that have to be mastered by learner.

Every aspects on the process of teaching and learning, assessing students, giving instruction, even the books are in English.

Effects on the Job Performance of Working Students in Selected Colleges in Cavite

...effects on the job performance of working students in selected colleges in cavite Jaime A. Enoc Jr., Aileen C. Juera De La Salle University – Dasmariñas City of Dasmariñas, Province of Cavite Abstract Education is considered as one of the valuable thing for every Filipino that they can achieve. It became a culture for every Filipino family to have even one member of the family to finish the education with a Diploma. This now became the answer for poverty for most of them. That is why even though the path to achieve success through education is seem to be narrow and steep, they still strive for excellence. That is why Filipino youth who really want to pursue their education chose to work while studying because of the incapability of their parents to support them financially. But due to their oath-to-work together with their responsibility as a student, how can they perform well in their job despite of their school responsibility? This study, therefore, was undertaken to find out how are they going to perform in a job while being a student at the same time. More specifically, it sought to answer the following questions: * Is schooling hindrance working students to perform to their job well? Or vice versa? * Is there any aspect that hinders the student to perform in their job? * Are they satisfied with their current job that can make them perform in the job well? * Are they more effective in their work environment than others?

Effects of Students Behavior That Affects Their Academic Performance Among the 3rd and 4th Year Students of Krislizz International Academy 2011 – 2011

...educate students to be knowledgeable, responsible, socially skilled, healthy, caring, and contributing citizens. This mission is supported by the growing number of school-based prevention and youth development programs; Yet, the current impact of these programs is limited because of insufficient coordination with other components of school operations and inattention to implementation and evaluation factors necessary for strong program impact and sustainability. Widespread implementation of beneficial prevention programming requires further development, professional development that prepares and supports educators to implement programs effectively, and systematic monitoring and evaluation to guide school improvement. Cultural influences impact behaviors of students and may contribute to failure in schools for minority students. According to Gault and Murphy (1987), many American schools claim to practice c ultural pluralism, but in reality all students are expected to fit into the white middle class culture. Students with different cultural backgrounds, values, and skills than those generally valued by American schools may be perceived as incapable of performing according to the school's standards.In addition to the assumptions described above, some commonly accepted myths about minority children become barriers to their access to quality education.
