This study aimed to assess mock accreditation prior to the conduct of the formal program survey visit among local counterparts in West Visayas State University, one of the eleven SUCs in region VI – Western Visayas. It likewise aimed to assess mock accreditation when respondents were taken as a whole and when they were classified as to sex, educational qualification and school; determine significant differences in the assessment on mock accreditation when classified as to sex, education attainment and school; identify difficulties encountered during mock accreditation; and present suggestions that could be recommended during mock accreditation. This study utilized the quantitative-qualitative method in describing the assessment on mock accreditation and narrating the difficulties and suggestions on mock accreditation. Ninety-five (95) faculty who were members of the accreditation task forces at WVSU Janiuay were utilized as respondents of the study. Researcher-made and duly-validated instruments such as questionnaire checklists on mock accreditation, difficulties met and suggestions to be recommended were used to gather data. Means and standard deviations were used to describe the assessment on mock accreditation by the respondents. The t-test and ANOVA were used to determine the significant differences on the assessment on mock accreditation as to sex, educational attainment and school. Results revealed that as an entire group and classified as to sex, educational attainment and school, mock accreditation was assessed by the respondents as highly effective.

The article exposes and analyzes Michel Foucault’s ideas on ethics. He embarked on this particular analysis by surveying classical Greece, in order to discover some pointers in doing ethics for today. He called it aesthetics of existence, as the ancient Greeks patterned their individual existence based on what they believe as the way towards attaining a beautiful life. The two important principles that were dominant then were care of the self (epimeleia heauton) and know yourself (gnothi heauton). Through his genealogy, it became clear that the ancient people puts more accentuation on the know yourself principle, which lead to what he calls as history’s wrong turning. He meant to look back in ancient period so that the modern subjects can have a glimpse of a possible paradigm they can adopt, which is to have a new ethics. Foucault would have that modern subjects also consider rapport a soi (the self’s relation to itself) as an important component a subject should assume to have a veritable ethical dimension. Finally, Foucault argues that there is a new way of doing ethics which is more in congruence to the situation of the contemporary subject.
This study wanted to investigate how the extent of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Utilization in teaching influences students ‘ academic performance among small, medium and large type of school in Public Secondary Schools in District 2 of the DepED Division of Bulacan as basis for program enhancement. The simple descriptive survey research methods were employed in exploring the influence between variables. Frequency distribution and weighted mean were also engaged to describe the availability of hardware and software resources. Frequency count and percentage were also used in presenting the data on student-computer ratio and internet access. The extent of utilization of ICT in teaching towards students ‘ academic performance in Math, Science and English subject was statistically analyzed using Regression analysis to determine the best predictor among the independent variable (IV) to the dependent variable (DV). In this study, it was found that the extent of teachers ‘ ICT utilization in teaching did not serve as significant predictors of the respondents’ academic performance and that there is no sufficient evidence to say that there is a significant relationship between independent and dependent variables. Then the model of no effects can be observed or that the obtained insignificant values were due to chance alone or other extraneous variables or factors. An ICT Program was also derived from the findings of the study that would benefit the needs of the Department of Education in Bulacan when it comes to ICT utilization.

Emotion plays an important role in establishing camaraderie and helps deal with situations that test an individual’s patience. However, for students, classroom environment together with peer-pressure and on-the-job training increases the chance of getting stressed. Maturity and stability has been differentiated to provide better alternatives to increasing risks of being unable to cope with difficult situations. While it is believed that emotional stability leads to emotional maturity, this common view is to be tested in different areas: self-collected; determined; calm; average; sensitive; feisty; and neurotic. Emotional maturity on the other hand, is measured as: sign of good emotional maturity; sign of having hindrances if they fail to address issues; sign of having troubles in life. Descriptive survey research methodology is used, specifically the correlation study, since it attempts to establish the perceived difference between the emotional stability and emotional maturity. The level of emotional stability is measured using the 30-item Emotional Stability Questionnaire (ESQ), emotional maturity is measured using the 20-item Emotional Maturity Questionnaire (EMQ). As far as emotional stability is concerned that existed among the fourth year students, these traits are being average, calm and sensitive. Twenty-five of the respondents are manifesting a good sign of emotional maturity, having standard deviation of 4.43 in the test. Having a ttest value of -2.9304 at 62 degrees of freedom and a p-value lower than 0.05 (P=0.0047), there is a significant difference that existed between the respondents’ perceived level of emotional stability and their perceived level of emotional maturity.
The main objective of the study is to determine the national governments budgetary support, school climate and faculty commitment as they relate to the productivity of State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in Region III. The findings of the study revealed that an insignificant trend is evident by and across institutions in respect to the total budget. A significant trend over the last five years is shown in personal services and capital outlay. The area of MOOE, research and extension do not have significant increase or decrease in the budget for the last five years. The null hypothesis to the effect that there was no significant increase/decrease in the distribution of the budget according to the five budget areas is partially confirmed in the study. A significant increase/decrease is evident in personal services and capital outlay but not in MOOE, research and extension. Not a single institution exhibits a significant increase or decrease in the cost of education per student for the last five years. Budgetary support particularly capital outlay positively relates with civil engineering. Personal services positively relate with mechanical engineering and research budget positively relates with Bachelor of Elementary Education
The significance of job satisfaction in any organizational setting and work environment, including law enforcement cannot be over-emphasized. This is due to the fact that job satisfaction has the tendency to influence work productivity, staff turnover, labor market behavior, work effort, and employee morale. Job satisfaction has long been the subject of discussion among academic scholars, industrialists, researchers, as well as in the business community. The study critically examined the correlates of job satisfaction from the organizational viewpoint among officers of the nigeria police. Data was collected through mail in survey from 500 police officers across the country for over a period of three months of which 437 of the surveys were found valid for data analysis, representing 72.8% response rate. The results suggest that “the work itself, remuneration/pay, promotion opportunities, and supervision had significant impact on job satisfaction while co-workers had no significant correlation with the officers’ job satisfaction.
