Title: STATUS OF CHILDREN IN CONFLICT WITH THE LAW IN LA TRINIDAD
Name:

ANNE JANE B. MACARIO and FELIPE S. COMILA, Ed.D

Abstract:

This study analyzed the status of children in conflict with the law in La Trinidad through fifty (50) selected employees and workers from government and non-government agencies. The study determined the level of incidence of the juvenile crimes committed in La Trinidad, the level of influence of the specified factors that contribute to the occurrence of children in conflict with the law, the degree of seriousness of the specified problems encountered in implementing the juvenile justice system and the level of utilization of the specified necessary intervention programs undertaken by government and non-government agencies. Findings confirmed that there is a high incidence of the crimes of theft, drug and substance abuse, drunkenness and vagrancy. Poverty, peer pressure, media influence and family dysfunction all have high influence in the commission of such crimes, they being interconnected with each other. Lack of adequate facilities such as a rehabilitation center, lack of constant monitoring and documentation of juvenile cases, lack of adequate manpower and lack of formal training of personnel topped the list of problems encountered. Counseling is the conventional mode of intervention utilized by all the concerned agencies.

Name:

ZURIEL ROSS C. TABIAN and RUSSELL B. DOLENDO, Ph.D.

Abstract:

This study focused in social competence, as a facet of sociology, and its relationship with sports performance. The study, also attempted to ensure that aside from the practical sporting abilities and various physical tasks for the respondents to be socially competent in order to have a very satisfactory work outputs. The Pearson Product-Moment Correlation was used to test the relationship between the social competence and the profile of the respondents and other variables through the survey-questionnaire. Also, a Social Competence Scale was administered as a tool to develop an index that measured social competence of the respondents during on-court and off-court sports experiences. Observations, interviews, video clips, group discussions and team dynamics activities were used as measuring tools to establish personal grasps of the respondent’s interactions and dynamics, as a team. Findings of the study will encourage the college sports coordinators, coaches, trainers and sports enthusiasts to focus in-deeply on the sociological and physiological well-being of their athletes. This will boost the morale and performance of their teams’ achievements; the social awareness enhancement of the Tarlac State University’s Sports Development Program and become an eye opener for the Sporting World.

Title: ITOGON INTEGRATED WATERSHED MANAGEMENT PROJECT: AN ASSESSMENT
Name:

ADAM A. PALEYAN and VICENTE T. WACANGAN, Ph.D.

Abstract:

This study determined the socio-economic profile of the communities assisted in Itogon Integrated Watershed Management Project (IIWMP), found-out the extent of implementation of the IIWMP, determined the perception of the respondents on the level of attainment of the objectives of the IIWMP, and identified the degree of seriousness of the problems related to the implementation of the project. Findings show that the mean age of the respondents is 41.34 years and strong enough to participate and work for the IIWMP. The greatest numbers of respondents are high school graduates and many finished college degree. In the extent of implementation of the IIWMP, the findings show that the forest nursery and plantation development, the community based livelihood and development, and the strengthening and development of organizations/staffs were highly implemented while the erosion and gully control activities were perceived by the respondents as moderately implemented. The respondents perceived that all the objectives were moderately attained in the level of perception of the objectives attainment of Itogon Integrated Watershed Management Project. The implementation stage was perceived by the respondents as much serious problem affecting the implementation of IIWMP particularly the marketing of their products, lack of appropriate technology for livelihood, apprehensive attitude of some stakeholders, and insufficient and release of funds. On the other hand, the problems that were slightly affecting the implementation of IIWMP were the preparatory stage, diagnostic stage, planning stage and some other problems like delay of validation, unfair compensation, lack of commitment/involvement of concerned officials and political interventions.

Title: EFFECTS OF VEHICULAR EMISSION ON MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF YOUNG AND MATURE LEAVES OF SUNFLOWER (Tithonia diversifolia) AND NAPIER GRASS (Pennisetum purpureum)
Name:

MARIE CAYE G. DULDULAO and ROMEO A. GOMEZ, Ph.D.

Abstract:

The research was conducted at two study sites, at Crop Techno Station, Puguis, La Trinidad, Benguet, designated as the control site and along Bokawkan Road, Baguio City, designated as the polluted site. Conducted from June to October 2008, the study sought to ascertain leaf responses to vehicular emission in terms of gross morphological and epidermal microscopic changes between young and mature leaves of a dicotyledonous plant, sunflower (Tithonia diversifolia) and a monocotyledonous one, napier grass (Pennisetum purpureum) in indicating the presence of vehicular air pollutants in the environment.

Results revealed that leaf gross morphological changes such as yellowing and browning, deformity in shape, spotting, drying of leaf margins and less hairy features were more observed in plants from the more polluted site than in the control site. The stomatal size was significantly affected by the interaction of plant site and growth stage. Young plants from the polluted site significantly showed larger stomatal sizes than those in the control site. The stomatal index was significantly affected by the interaction of plant sites and growth stages. The young monocots in the polluted site have significantly higher stomatal means than those in the control area. As to the interaction between plant site and growth stage, young plants in Bokawkan (polluted) had significantly higher stomatal index than those in Puguis (control). Plant site, plant type and growth stage significantly affected the trichome length. Mature monocots from the control site exhibited the longest trichome length while the shortest were exhibited by young monocots from the polluted site. Trichome length of both monocots and dicots was significantly affected by the plant sites. The monocot samples from Puguis (control) were longer in trichome length than those in Bokawkan (polluted) while the dicot samples in Bokawkan (polluted) were longer than those in Puguis (control). The effect of the interactions of plant sites, plant types and growth stages on trichome density was not significantly different. The result obtained between the interaction of trichome density and plant types was also the same. Trichome density in young leaves from the control site was significantly higher than those in the polluted site. The two factors namely plant site and plant type significantly affected the chlorophyll content of the leaves. The dicots from the control site have significantly higher chlorophyll contents than those in the polluted site. Plants can capture significant quantities of dust particles from the atmosphere with the potential to improve local air quality. Epidermal leaf surface features, including stomates, trichomes and chlorophyll content in plants growing along roadsides are changed due to the stress of automobile exhaust emission with high traffic density in urban areas. These modifications can be considered as indicators of environmental stress. Among the plant species studied, seemingly monocot types of the young stage considering trichome length and stomatal index are potential species in indicating the symptoms of pollutant assimilation.

Title: SUKI SYSTEM AS A MARKETING STRATEGY AT THE BAGUIO CITY PUBLIC MARKET
Name:

ELIZABETH MAYOMIS CALIGUING and BEVERLY C. SA-AO, M.A.

Abstract:

This study focused on the Suki System as marketing strategy at the Baguio City Public Market, the factors that affect the Suki System, marketing strategies employed by the sellers and buyers and the effects of the Suki System to the respondents along the following: socio-cultural effects, economic effects, and personal effects. The respondents of the study are the sellers and buyers. Data were gathered through interviews which were transcribed, analyzed and interpreted.

Suki system is practiced in Baguio City Public Market as seen in the volumes of purchased and the frequency of transaction. The clients of the sellers are ahentes coming from the neighboring provinces of Benguet, tourists and retailers. Suki system in the Public City Market is a process of exchange where there is a repeated transaction between the sellers and buyers. There are several factors that affect the suki system. For socio cultural factor, kinship and language affect the suki system. For economic factor, the ability to pay of their clients is what affects the sellers. For the buyers, they always look at the quality of the product. On the personal factors, both the seller-respondents and buyer respondents are affected by the attitude of their clients and suki sellers. Sellers used several strategies to maintain and sustain their sukis. The same is true with the buyers. The best strategy used by the sellers is to offer quality products which are connected with the strategy of the buyers. For the buyers, the best strategy is to assess or evaluate the quality of the product. The most beneficial effect of the suki system on socio-cultural factor is that suki system fostered loyalty and trust; and for the economic factor, the best effect of the suki system for the sellers is having an outlet for the easy and continuous disposal of their product. On the part of the buyers, they were able to ask for credit, availed of free delivery and discounts and were assured of good products. Assurance of quality product is what the buyer-respondents deemed as the most important benefit of suki system. Personally the buyers and sellers have the same results when it comes to the effects of the suki system. They became friendly, patient and humble. The government and other private and public sectors should initiate programs or regulations on how to strengthen the values developed in the suki system not only in marketing but in all activities as well. This in turn will guide businessmen alike to focus on the social impact of the Suki System used as a marketing strategy.

Name:

JOCELYN T. GUMPENG and BRETEL B. DOLIPAS, Ph.D.

Abstract:

The study determined the availability of computer-based technologies in the Catholic elementary schools in Baguio City; the proficiency of the science teachers on the use of these technologies; their frequency in using them; their level of awareness on the purposes of using these technologies; and the problems on the use of computer-based technologies as perceived by the science teachers. The perceptions of the teachers were tabulated and compared according to age, gender, civil status, number of seminars/ trainings/ workshops attended and school. The respondents in the study were 30 science teachers from the Catholic elementary schools in Baguio City. The results show that the science teachers in the Catholic schools of Baguio City perceived that the specified computer-based technologies in general are ‘moderately available’. Respondents who are younger, male, and with more number of seminars, trainings or workshops attended perceived higher availability of the specified computer-based technologies. They perceived that the most available computer-based technology in the Catholic elementary schools in Baguio City is the computer while the least available is the LCD projector. The teachers generally perceived themselves as ‘moderately proficient’ in using the specified computer-based technologies. They perceived themselves as most proficient in the use of the computer and least proficient in the use of the LCD projector. Science teachers belonging to age brackets 21-25 and 36-40, male, single, with 6 and above seminars, trainings and workshops attended and teaching in SLU-LES are more proficient. The respondents use the specified computer-based technologies ‘sometimes’ or once in three or more months. The computer is the most frequently used technology. The respondents whose ages range from 21-25, female and with 6 and above seminars, trainings or workshops attended use the specified computer-based technologies ‘more often’. The teachers are generally ‘very aware’ of the specified purposes of using computer-based technologies regardless of their age, gender, civil status, number of seminars attended and school.

Title: PHONOLOGICAL ERRORS OF KOREAN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN BAGUIO CITY
Name:

EVANGELINE RACHEL D. LEAÑO and JOSEFINA A. DACANAY, M.A.

Abstract:

The study was conducted to determine the phonological errors of Korean senior high school students in Baguio City and to find out the variables that affect the pronunciation of the respondents. Data were taken from nine private high schools in Baguio City involving 62 respondents whose oral reading of three selections were tape recorded, transcribed and analyzed. The findings revealed that in phonology, the greatest errors are in consonant quality and the least are in word stress. Among all the variables studied, media exposure and educational materials have the greatest influence to the respondents’ pronunciation. The helpful variables in descending order on media exposure are English movies, American TV shows; on educational materials are English audio tapes, English books are the most helpful and Korean books related to English have the lowest influence to the respondents pronunciation. Among the types of teachers, the native English speaker tutor and the English school teacher are the most influential in enhancing the pronunciation of the students followed by school teachers but not English teachers, and the least helpful are the tutors, who may come in varied background of education. The two least variables in deepening the students’ pronunciation are local English variation and the respondents’ first language. Local variation of English is English spoken by professional workers, classmates and ordinary workers like salesgirls and vendors. It was drawn from the study that phonological errors are committed by students in their oral reading especially in consonant quality and vowel quality. Also, the most significant variables in enhancing the respondents’ pronunciation are English movies and English TV shows, English audiotape, English books. Native English tutors and English school teachers are moderately influential to the respondents, followed by school teachers but not English teachers and tutors who are the least helpful. The students’ first language interferes with their pronunciation and local variations of English are not helpful.

Title: ALKALOIDS AS TAXONOMIC MARKER OF FOUR SELECTED SPECIES OF Eupatorium WEEDS
Name:

PRAXEDES F. ROSUMAN and LORENZA G. LIRIO, Ph.D.

Abstract:

Chemotaxonomy provides information as to additional taxonomic character to some selected plants. In the case of the four selected weed species of the genus Eupatorium, Alkaloid, a secondary metabolite is present in all the weed plants. Moreover, the functional groups of the alkaloid present was analyzed through Infrared spectroscopy. It was found out that based on the clustering of the functional groups there are two types of alkaloids that the weed plants possess. Eupatorium adenophorum and Eupatorium coelestinum contain one type of alkaloid while Eupatorium odoratum and Eupatorium riparium have another type. Thus adenophorum and coelestinum can be clustered to one group while odoratum and riparium belong to another cluster. The alkaloid extracted from the weed specimens were tested against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli to determine their antibacterial activity. When tested against S. aureus, a gram positive bacterium, the extracts from the weed plants were not as effective as the commercial antibiotic, Imipinem. However, the alkaloid extracts from E. adenophorum and E. riparium were as effective as synthetic Imipinem when tested against E. coli, a gram negative bacterium. Seemingly, the alkaloid extracts were bactericidal in activity.

Title: CONTENT-BASED INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS FOR NURSING COMMUNICATION SKILLS 1 CLASSES
Name:

SOFIA G. LIGAWEN and ESTHER R. HUFANA, Ph.D.

Abstract:

This study focused on the development of language tasks for freshman nursing students enrolled in Communication Skills 1 at the University of Baguio. The descriptive method was utilized using questionnaires to assess the learning needs of students. Text analysis was employed to identify the common rhetorical patterns in the textbooks as basis for writing the materials. Language tasks were designed based on the results of needs and text analyses. Usefulness of the tasks was evaluated by students, English, and content teachers using weighted means. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was employed to test significant differences among the evaluations of the three groups of respondents. Results revealed that 100% of the student-respondents claimed that learning the English language is helpful in various ways and the skills needed by the students were speaking, followed by listening, reading, and writing. The students expected to improve their speaking skills, to speak fluently, to learn more vocabulary related to their field of specialization, and to improve their skills in listening, and in reading. Difficulties in reading were unlocking the meaning of unfamiliar words, getting the main idea, distinguishing facts and opinion, organizing ideas, and relating texts with real life situation. Identified difficulties in writing included, choosing the right words, organizing ideas, writing grammatically correct sentences, and linking ideas in a paragraph; those in listening consisted of understanding grammatically correct sentences, understanding instructions/directions, and understanding lectures. Difficulties in speaking were pronouncing words clearly using the right words, and expressing ideas. Students learned best by lecture-demonstration, lecture-discussion, and student-teacher interaction; majority rated 3 hours/week on the number of hours in learning English. Factors contributory to learning English were the teacher, books/newspapers/magazines, films/radio/television, home, and friends. Rhetorical patterns identified as useful to the students were physical description, process description, classification, cause and effect, and problem-solution. The students’ assessment on their proficiency in English was good. Process description was the most common rhetorical pattern found in nursing textbooks followed by definition, classification, physical description, and problem-solution. A total of 17 communicative tasks were developed based on needs and text analyses. The tasks were evaluated very useful by the students (3.60), English teachers (3.60), and content teachers (3.26). In general, the materials were rated with a mean of 3.49 (very useful).

Title: GENOTYPE X ENVIRONMENT INTERACTION IN POTATO GROWN ORGANICALLY IN SIX DIFFERENT LOCATIONS OF BENGUET
Name:

CHARLOTTE C. SHAGOL and BELINDA A. TAD-AWAN, Ph.D.

Abstract:

The study was conducted to determine genotype x environment (G x E) interaction of potato grown organically in different locations in Benguet through G x E analysis; determine the best potato genotypes for organic production in different environments in Benguet based on the Additive Main Effects Multiplicative Interaction (AMMI) Model; determine the best environment for organic potato production through the AMMI Model; and determine the stability of the potato genotypes across six environments through the AMMI model. Genotype x environment (G x E) interaction differed for late blight incidence at 60 DAP. Late blight incidence is largely due to the environment rather than the genotype. Genotypes likewise differed in their reactions to the different environments. Most genotypes had large interactions with the environment. Among the genotypes, PHIL 5.19.2.2, CIP 380251.17 and CIP 573275 have stable resistance to late blight across environments. Canopy cover at 60 DAP is significantly affected by the environment. Most genotypes had variable interactions with the environment. Genotype CIP 676089 showed stability in canopy cover at 60 DAP across environments. Total yield is largely influenced by the environment, G x E interaction and genotype. Interaction with the environments was large for most genotypes. The best genotypes based on the analysis are CIP 13.1.1, CIP 676089, PHIL 5.19.2 and CIP 380251.17. Loo was the most favorable environment for organic potato production among the environments. CIP 676089 and CIP 380251.17 have specific adaptation in Cabutotan and genotype PHIL 5.19.2.2 in Sinipsip. Genotype CIP 13.1.1 had the most stable yield among the genotypes studied.

Title: THE EFFECT OF LEARNING MODULES ON STUDENTS’ PERFORMANCE ON RADICALS
Name:

MONICA S. SANTOS and MARILYN B. TOLEDO, M.A.T.

Abstract:

This study was conducted to determine the effect of learning modules on student’s performance on radicals, which includes simplification, performing operations on radicals and solving radical equations. The research employed the true experimental pre-test-post-test control group design. Forty-five (45) students participated in the study and were exposed to two different methods, twenty-five (25) of which consisted the experimental group had the modular approach with the aid of the learning modules and twenty (20) in the control group were exposed to the usual lecture method. The experiment was conducted during the first semester of SY 2008-2009. The Kuder-Richardson 20 was used in determining the reliability of the test instrument used. The level of performance of the student’s along identified topics was determined from their scores obtained in the pre-test and post-test administered, the exact grade range was computed and matched with its corresponding qualitative description with BSU standard grade formula. The t-test was used to assess if there is a significant difference between the level of performance of the experimental and control group. Findings revealed that the performance of both the control and experimental group at the start of the study indicates that they have very limited knowledge on radicals. The level of performance of the two groups exposed to two different methods improved greatly, thus indicating that both methods were effective in enhancing level of performance, although results revealed that the difference in the level of performance is not significant. Based on these, it is recommended that students, before advancing to different levels and topics in Algebra, must be exposed to a gradual and thorough review of previously learned concepts through intensive discussions of vague and confounding ideas to ensure a truly enhanced level of performance and that the teacher of both the high school and tertiary level spend sufficient time for planning, conceptualizing and developing high quality learning modules that will serve as an additional and alternate instructional material suited for diverse students.

Title: SCIENCE PROCESS SKILLS PROFICIENCY OF THE GRADE VI PUPILS IN THE ELEMENTARY DIOCESAN SCHOOLS OF BAGUIO AND BENGUET
Name:

LYDIA L. CHAGUNA and DIVINA M. YANGO, Ph.D.

Abstract:

The study determined the level of science process skill proficiency of the Grade VI pupils along observing, classifying, inferring, predicting, measuring, communicating, using space/time relations, forming hypothesis, experimenting and interpreting data. It also determined the difference between the science process skills proficiency of grade VI pupils and selected variables like age and gender. It also identified the degree of seriousness of pupil, teacher and school problems encountered by pupils in developing science process skills proficiency. The study was conducted during the 1st semester of SY 2008-2009. A total of 173 Grade VI pupils from three Elementary Diocesan Schools of Baguio and Benguet were the respondents. A questionnaire and an assessment test were used to obtain data that were subsequently analyzed statistically. The study revealed that the pupils have above average level of proficiency along the three skills of measuring, classifying and inferring. All the rest manifest average level of proficiency wherein the lowest is in experimenting. Generally, the pupils have average level of proficiency along science process skills denoting that the pupils have still a long way to go in developing their science process skills. Both age groups and gender groups have above average level of proficiency along measuring, classifying and inferring. The lowest in both variables are communicating, observing, and experimenting. Age and gender do not affect the science process skills proficiency level of the pupils. Along the cluster of pupil factors, the top problems are as follows: Poor study habits, no time to study, Lack of interest in science subject and feeling sleepy in class. The rest of the problem indicators, except one, have means that fall under the category of moderately serious. Considered as not serious is dislike for the science teacher. Generally, pupil factors were moderately serious problems. The top ranking problems under the cluster of teacher factors are as follows: absent teacher, no willingness to help pupils, teacher requires memorization of facts, no experiments are done, and mastery of the course content. Moderately serious problems were encountered under the area of teacher factors. The top ranking problems under the cluster of school factors are: inadequate science materials, no laboratory room for science, and library is always closed for pupils to study. Pupils encountered moderately serious problems under the cluster of school factors.

Taken as a whole, the moderately serious problems encountered by the pupils in developing their science process skills denote that certain factors, notably school and teacher factors, affect the development of science process skills of the pupils. Recommendations are offered in order to develop science process skills proficiency of the pupils. Similar studies are also suggested.

CULTIVARS DIVINA C. JOSE and BELINDA A. TAD-AWAN, Ph.D.

Abstract:

Plants subjected to soil matric potential (SMP) of 25 centibars (cb) had the highest marketable (222.33 g/2 plants); net assimilation rate at 25, 50 and 65 days after planting (DAP); and leaf area index (LAI) at 50 and 65 DAP. Plants subjected to 50/cb had a reduction of 24% marketable yield with highest percentage of second growth tubers (3.93%). Plants subjected to 75/cb had poor performance with a 50% reduction of marketable yield and higher maturity period by 4 days, and increased percentage of dumbbell tubers. Among the cultivars, Agria and Recolta produced high marketable yield 10.27 t/ha and 10.31 t/ha, respectively). These cultivars are early maturing with high net assimilation rate, the characteristics of drought resistant cultivars. Agria has a mechanism of curling leaves aside from drooping and shedding of leaves to conserve water under drought. Cultivars Agria and Recolta subjected to 25 and 50/cb produced comparatively high marketable yield in each SMP level. Igorota subjected to all SMP levels had no marketable yield. Baraka subjected to 50 and 75/cb had the highest percentage formation of second growth and dumbbell tubers. All cultivars subjected to 75/cb had high dry matter content of tubers (25%). Positive significant correlations were observed on LAI at 50 DAP, marketable yield, and percentage second growth to total yield.
