Students Performance of BSIE and BSHE in Drawing Subjects in the University of Eastern Philippines: Basis for the Curricular Enhancement
Abstract: The study aimed at determining the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Education (BSIE) and Bachelor of Science in Home Economics (BSHE) students performance in their Drawing subject. Specifically, the study determined the socio-demographic profile of the respondents in terms of age, sex, type of high school graduated, educational attainment of parents, and learning resources at home; found out the level of performance of the respondents in their Drawing subject; tested the significant relationship between the respondents profile and the level of performance in the Drawing subject. The study was conducted at the University of Eastern Philippines, University Town, Northern Samar, Philippines. Descriptive design was employed because the study involved description, recording, analysis, and interpretation of students performance in drawing subjects. Further, correlational design was also used because this study delved into the relationship between students profile and their performance in drawing. There was a complete enumeration of BSIE and BSHE students enrolled in the Drawing subject. A survey questionnaire was used in gathering the necessary data of the study to determine the socio-demographic profile of the respondents. Furthermore, the rating/grades in the Drawing subject of the respondents were secured from the University Registrars Office and were used as the basis to quantify the respondents academic performance for the subject. Although other parameters which affect the performance of the students like background in Drawing, sufficient tools and most importantly instructional material are also to be considered. The study found out that majority of the respondents have a good performance in their Drawing subject. Generally, this was due to the application of exploratory approach through project method where the students learned to analyze data and applied principles on concepts presented. This method enabled the students not only to acquire knowledge but also skills. Other method like the demonstrative which provides the students to understand, learn and appreciate a particular subject demonstrated by the professor. However, the remainder of respondents failed in the subject claiming that their difficulty was due to lack of background in drawing during their secondary school studies. It is, therefore, recommended that a workbook in Drawing be provided to aid and supplement both students and instructors in the study of the subject and a need to revisit the Curriculum on BSIE and BSHE focusing on the subject Drawing if there is a need to increase its unit or revise the nomenclature, to address the learning needs of the students.
