CHAPTER II THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK This is the part of the research where the readers could find some theory, iterative, and studies that can help to have the knowledge and further this research.These could give information and background about this research so that many could understand.
Relevant Theory According to Greg Fielded (2004), “Study habits help the student in critical reflection in skills out comes such as selecting, analyzing, critiquing, and synthesizing. ” In connection with this theory, it is stated that the good study habits will help the students in order for them to gain knowledge and understanding to be able for them to perform well in class and also for them to enhance their academic performances.Students failed and take remedial classes with some of their subjects because they do not know how to study. It is important for the students to have an overview of their lessons and also to know their skills and ability in some of their subjects. The study habits are learning tendencies that enable students to work private. Because every students has an ability to improve their academic skills in their own way of studying. And for the students to have a time for them to study their lessons and to improve their individual learning skills.
According to Miss Emily Perez (2011 “A good Education can give a better future I fail to proud you. Strive hard and be the best that you can be. The only luxury in this word that I can give you is Education so treasure it and don’t stop learning. Grab the opportunity to make yourself better person. ” In connection with this theory, the students must recognize their ability and skills in pursuing with their studies. Enhancing one’s ability in improving learning skill will gain a distinct knowledge that every individuals must have.Education will bring us opportunity to show what learning and understanding that the student gain in their study.
And one way of showing it is to enhance the academic performance of every student. Because for the students to be able to gain success, each and every one should strive hard. And according to Benedict Baling (201 1), “Success is dynamic and not constant. One should keep on improving oneself every step of the way. ” This means that anyone could be successful. One must always try his or her best in doing things. Like the students, the students should always strive hard to get high grades and do well in school.
The students who are undergoing remedial classes must take advantage because the students who undergo in remedial classes get the chance of listening again to the explanation of the cheers. The students must apply what they learn in attending regular classes. The students should participate in class actively or better if the students will change and improve their study habits and this may cause also the improvement Of the students’ grades. Related Literature “The important thing is to learn a lesson every time you lose. Life is a learning process and you have to try to learn what’s best for you. This is according to John McElroy (2007). This tells everyone that it is normal to lose sometimes but when someone loses, that person must strive harder.
That person must make losing an inspiration to do better. No one must lose hope. Like the students who undergo remedial classes, the students must not lose hope because everyone has a chance to get high grades so the students must always try their best, study hard and be able to be one of the students who excel in their studies. According to Martin Ford (1992) “If you know what you want to do and it poses a challenge, it’s more effective.But remember: ‘People must also believe that they have the capabilities and opportunities needed to achieve their goal The researchers think that some Of the students who undergo remedial lasses have now low trust to themselves in terms of studies. The quoted statement would like to remind the students and even other people that each and everyone have own capabilities. The students must always believe and trust themselves.
The students must be determined in pursuing goals and studying hard could help in reaching goals. Related Studies The study of Rockwell Angelina Rexes, et al (2010) states that “… Cause the word remedial really means that it is for the students whom would like to improve their skills and learning. ” The study just tells us the real meaning of remedial. Remedial classes are for those students who like to improve their studies and get higher grades.
And according to the study of Swamp Vaccinated (2004) “How habits are developed in us and how finally our whole personality is influenced by our habits and conclude that everything we are is a result of habit. ” This states that everything people do is affected by the habits.So the students who undergo remedial classes must change and improve the study habits to have a better result in their academics. Conceptual Framework The researchers’ independent variable is remedial classes, age, sex, and year level. And the dependent variable of the research are the Academic Performance and the students and the researchers think that the two are connected to each other because remedial classes and the other factors affects the academic performance and the study habits of the knowledge and for the students to be able to perform well in class.The researchers also think that the students who undergo remedial classes will improve their attitude towards their study habits. And also, it is in order for the students to gain more understanding about the students’ academic performance.
The researchers also think that the age, sex, and the dents’ year level may also be some of the factors why the students have poor academic performance. The students will also make some changes and improvements about their way of studying their lessons and enhance their academic performance.Conceptual Paradigm Figure 1 Independent Variable Hypothesis Formulation Null Hypothesis Dependent Variables The remedial classes have no significant effect to the academic performance of the highlights students at Assumption Academy school year 201 1-2012. Alternative Hypothesis There is a significant effect in the Academic performance of the highlights dents in taking remedial classes. Notes in Chapter II Baling, Benedict (201 1). Cross Roads.
