Title: TEACHING EFFECTIVENESS OF THE COLLEGE MATHEMATICS INSTRUCTORS IN JOSE RIZAL MEMORIAL STATE COLLEGE, DAPITAN CITY: ITS CORRELATES
Name: Quiliano E. Lasco and Paterno S. Baguinat III
Abstract:

The study determined the level of teaching effectiveness of the College Mathematics instructors in Jose Rizal Memorial State College – Main Campus, Dapitan City during the Second Semester of the School Year 2003 – 2004 in terms of academic knowledge, teaching skills and classroom management skills and its correlates, namely: affective characteristics, educational qualification, attendance in in-service trainings/seminars, and teaching experience. The study revealed the significant correlation between teaching effectiveness and affective characteristics of college Math instructors, their educational qualification and attendance in in-service trainings/seminars but teaching experience is not significantly correlated with teaching effectiveness. Affective characteristics largely affect teaching effectiveness while educational qualification and attendance in in-service trainings or seminars slightly influence and affect teaching effectiveness of college Math instructors; however, the length of experience does not significantly influence teaching effectiveness. It was also divulged in the study that the administrators’ kinds of supervision significantly influences teaching effectiveness. Administrators and college deans should intensify their supervisory functions to monitor instructor’s needs and weaknesses and attract them to take postgraduate studies for professional advancement.

Title: CORPORATIZATION OF STATE UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES: IMPACT ON HIGHER EDUCATION
Name: Renato F. Malate1
Abstract:

Republic Act 8292, otherwise known as the Higher Education Modernization Act of 1997, empowers State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in the Philippines to engage in corporate activities in order to generate revenues. Five higher education institutions, particularly SUCs in Region IX were considered for analysis in terms of the SUCs implementation of corporatization, and its effect on access, growth, fiscal autonomy, and quality education. The research method used was quantitative-descriptive survey using a prepared questionnaire with other data and information obtained from annual/official reports. The result of the study revealed that corporatization schemes adopted by SUCs were mainly from income from education (94%) and a fraction from use of economic assets or IGPs (6%). Corporatization resulted to improvements and significant effect on SUCs’ growth in terms of number of program offerings, number of faculty and extension projects. T-test showed that the impact is not significant in terms of access, fiscal autonomy, and quality education of SUCs.

Keywords: corporatization, access, growth, fiscal autonomy, quality education.

Title: PERSONAL-SOCIAL ADJUSTMENTS IN RELATION TO COPING MECHANISMS OF SUC PRESIDENTS IN MINDANAO
Name: Rizza B. Bagalanon
Abstract:

The study aimed to determine the relationship between the personal-social adjustments and coping mechanisms of Presidents of State Universities and Colleges in Mindanao during the school year 2008-2009. The descriptive-correlation method of research was used and the main assessment tool was the questionnaire which was prepared by the researcher. The responses were drawn from twenty nine Presidents and were analyzed using the mean computation, the t-test, f-test and the Pearson r Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation. The study revealed that there was a significant relationship between the SUC Presidents’ personal-social adjustments and coping mechanisms. This signifies that their personal-social adjustments influence their abilities to cope with work stress. SUC Presidents’ security or well-being in the personal-social aspects is an important factor to be able to cope with things that come along relative to their positions or jobs. It was also revealed that their personal social adjustments as well as their coping mechanisms were only “high”. Thus, for an improved adjustment and coping levels, SUC Presidents need to attend in the personality enhancement trainings, physical fitness programs and other forms of recreational and relaxation activities in order to unload work burdens and to gain new strength and vitality.

Title: EFFICACY EVALUATION OF VERMICOMPOST AND INORGANIC FERTILIZER APPLIED IN LOWLAND RICE
Name: L. Pontillas, E. Lugo, R. Malate, A. Lanioso
Abstract:

Study on the effect of vermicompost on the growth and yield of rice as well as on the return on capital was conducted on December 2007 to September 2008 at Jose Rizal Memorial State College, Katipunan Campus, Katipunan Zamboanga del Norte. Three treatments were laid in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with four replications. The application of vermicompost alone and the combination of inorganic fertilizer and vermicompost resulted to no significant differences in the height in comparison with inorganic fertilizer at 60 DAT both in 1st and 2nd trial. It was at harvest that rice applied with inorganic produced a significantly tallest plants among the treatments in 1st trial. In 2nd trial, it generated a dramatic increase in ROI when using vermicompost supplemented with inorganic fertilizer (103.8%) which is comparably the same with inorganic fertilizer (119.6%). This signifies a favorable effect on the growth, yield and return on investment in rice production when vermicompost was supplemented with inorganic fertilizer and further implies that it can be a substitute to pure inorganic fertilizer application.

Title: SOIL CHEMICAL PROPERTIES AND DRY MATTER YIELD OF CORN AS INFLUENCED BY ORGANIC MATTER AMENDMENT
Name: Lucresia A. Pontillas
Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to evaluate the influence of corn cob, corn stover,sunflower, chicken dung and mucuna on a strongly acidic soil (pH= 4.03; Al =1.45me/100g) by evaluating its effects on soil chemical properties, root elongation and dry matter yield. Rates of organic materials were 0, 4, 8 and 16 tons/ha. A total of 18 treatments including calcium carbonate and calcium sulfate were laid out in Completely Randomized Design (CRD) with 3 replications. Application of corn cob, corn stover and chicken manure at 4, 8 and 16 tons/ha increased the soil pH, but not all treatments showed significant difference over the control. Highest rate of corn cob (16 tons/ha) and all rates of chicken manure were found to be comparable with the application of lime (CaCO3). Among the five organic materials, chicken manure was found to be promising and effective organic source, that showed significant increased in root length and dry matter yield because of its favorable effect to some of the chemical properties. Its application, pH was increased, marked organic matter build up, exchangeable aluminum (Al) greatly reduced and phosphorus availability was greatly increased.

Title: GROWTH PERFORMANCE AND CARRAGEENAN YIELD OF KAPPAPHYCUS ALVAREZII (DOTY) AND EUCHEUMA DENTICULATUM (BURMAN) COLLINS ET HARVEY, FARMED IN BAIS BAY, NEGROS ORIENTAL AND OLINGAN, DIPOLOG CITY
Name: Maria Rio A. Naguit, Wilson L. Tisera, and Aida Lanioso
Abstract:

This study aims to determine the growth performance and carrageenan contents of the different strains of Eucheuma and Kappaphycus cultured at different depths. Thirty 50-g seedlings of each of the brown and green cultivars of Eucheuma denticulatum (Collins & Hervey) and Kappaphycus alvarezii (Doty) were cultured at two different depths: near water surface (floating method) and 2 meters below or bottom (monoline method). Growth rates and carrageenan contents varied between species, strains and depth. The brown variety of K. alvarezii cultured near the water surface showed a significantly higher mean growth rate (2.85%) and carrageenan(81.74 %). Generally, plants with higher growth rates have higher carrageenan yield.

Title: PIGMENT ANALYSIS ON EUCHEUMA DENTICULATUM (COLLINS & HERVEY) AND KAPPAPHYCUS ALVAREZII (DOTY) CULTIVARS CULTURED AT DIFFERENT DEPTHS
Name: Maria Rio A. Naguit and Wilson L. Tisera
Abstract:

There are three kinds of pigments directly involved in algal photosynthesis - the chlorophylls (a and b), phycobiliproteins and carotenoids. Red algae do not contain chlorophyll b and use phycobiliproteins for the capture of light energy. This study determines whether concentrations of chlorophyll a and phycoerythrin in Eucheuma denticulatum (Collins & Hervey) Kappaphycus alvarezii (Doty) cultivars cultured in Bais Bay and Olingan, Dipolog City vary with depths. Concentrations of chlorophyll a in Eucheuma denticulatum and Kappaphycus alvarezii species particularly the small varieties may not vary with depth, but, with species. Phycoerythrin concentration varies with species and depth.

Keywords: Kappaphycus alvarezii, Eucheuma denticulatum, chlorophyll a, phycoerythrin

Title: CHARACTERIZATION OF THE SIPHONAL MANTLE OF TRIDACNA CROCEA
Name: Maria Rio A. Naguit
Abstract:

Tridacna crocea is the smallest among the eight species of Family Tridacnidae and the most abundant tridacnids in reefs around the Philippine archipelago. This investigation describes the characteristic mantle pattern and color of T. crocea and correlates them to genetic structure; verifies the characteristic mantle color and pattern of T. crocea underwater and differentiates it from its closely related species, T. maxima in the field. Tissue samples of Tridacna crocea and T. maxima were collected and preserved in 95% alcohol. Prior to any mantle collection, each clam was photographed.Thirteen mantle patterns were identified from the 174 Tridacna crocea individuals of six reef areas: Pamilacan, Tanon Strait, Carbin, Camiguin, Southeastern Samar and Spratlys. Results revealed that Tridacna crocea can be distinguished from T.maxima in the field by the appearance and arrangement of their hyaline organs. Moreover, analysis on genotype-phenotype correlation using the T. crocea mantle morphology/color, found no significant relationship between the mantle morphs and genetic structure of the individuals.

Title: ICE-ICE DISEASE OCCURRENCE IN SEAWEED FARMS IN BAIS BAY, NEGROS ORIENTAL AND ZAMBOANGA DEL NORTE
Name: Wilson L. Tisera and Maria Rio A. Naguit
Abstract:

Incidence and degree of infection of four forms belonging to carrageenophytes, Kappaphycus alvarezii brown and green, and Eucheuma denticulatum brown and green were investigated in the established three farms in Bais Bay, Negros Oriental Philippines, on April 2007 to January 2008. Additional samples were also taken on December 2007 in Jose Dalman and Rizal, Zamboanga del Norte. Physical and chemical parameter like temperature, salinity, rainfall and tide level were taken to analyze their relationship with the disease.The incidence and degree of infection varied significantly between species, strain, time (months) and farms as revealed in the two way ANOVA analysis. K. alvarezii has higher incidence and infection, as well as the farm located near community and exposed mostly during low tide.

Keywords: carrageenophytes, ice-ice disease, Kappaphycus alvarezii, Eucheuma denticulatum
