Chapter V RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS This chapter discusses the major finding of the study and its interpretation.

I. Respondents Profile The Effects of Class Schedule to Academic Performance as Perceived by Selected Engineering Students of LPU-L survey was conducted inside the campus. A total of 96 sets of questions were distributed to the respondents at the research area and randomly chosen respondents, and all of the 96 sets questionnaires were returned. Since, the respondents properly completed the questionnaire, all the data were analyzed and included on the study. We received 96 responses, including 66 4th year students, 15 3rd year students and 15 2nd year students. All respondents were experienced different kind of class scheduling (Morning Class, Afternoon Class, and Evening Class).

Showing on the graph, most of the engineering students prefer to have an afternoon class schedule with 47.92%. Morning class has 41.67% while evening class has 10.42%.

2. In relation to your academic performance, which schedule is the most effective? Class Schedule Morning Class Afternoon Class Evening Class Total Frequency 63 25 8 96 Percentage 65.63% 26.04% 8.33% 100.00%

Figure 2: Graphical Illustration of most effective class schedule

Based on the illustration, most of the engineering students said that Morning class is the most effective class schedule with 65.63%. 26.04% answered afternoon class while 8.33% for the evening class.

Chapter VI SUMMARY, CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATION This chapter provides the summary of results, conclusion and recommendation about the study regarding Class Schedule and its effect to academic performance.

I. Summary of Findings The study used the Descriptive Method and the main tool used was survey questions utilized for the 96 Engineering Students 2nd year to 4th year. A total 96 respondents are computed using slovins formula. The survey questionnaire is composed of three sections: The respondents profile, the class schedule information and the Effects/Impacts of Class Schedule to Academic Performance of Students. In order to determine the effect of class schedule to student's academic performance, the quantitative research techniques were used particularly the Likert Scale. The data

gathered in this study were analyzed using the Relative Frequency and weighted mean. The gathered results contain the answer in the statement of the problem which can help to formulate the conclusion. 1. Which schedule is more preferred of the students, morning, afternoon or evening class? As we come up to the result, most of the engineering students prefer to have an afternoon class schedule with 47.92%. Morning class has 41.67% while evening class has 10.42%.

2. What are the class schedules offered by Lyceum of the Philippines Laguna? The types of class schedules offered by Lyceum of the Philippines Laguna are the morning, afternoon and evening class schedule. 3. What are the factors that affect class scheduling? There are 5 factors that could affect class scheduling at Lyceum of the Philippines Laguna. Based on the result in our survey, the first factor is Lack of faculty members with 36.98%. Next is to accommodate working students with 17.71%. Lack of classroom and to accommodate irregular students has 17.19% and 10.94% to accommodate students with co-curricular activities. 4. Is there an impact on the academic performance of the engineering students? Based on our study, the schedule of the class really has an effect to the academic performance of the students. The schedule of the class affects the

students on a way that it will change their behavior based on the time of their class. 5. What schedule is effective to the academic performance of the student? After computing the results, we conclude that morning class is the most effective class schedule for the engineering students. Most of the students said that Morning class is the most effective class schedule with 65.63%. 26.04% answered afternoon class while 8.33% for the evening class.

II. Conclusion Overall, the pattern of findings drawn from the existing research leads to the following three conclusions: 1. After analyzing the survey that we conducted from engineering students, we found out that there is no disparity among the students who are attending day classes, afternoon classes and students who are attending evening classes when it comes to academic performance.

2. We conclude that the academic performance of the students were not affected by the class schedule as much as it is affected by other factors (environment, class size etc)

3. Most of the students prefer to have afternoon class rather than morning and evening classes.
