Abstract

The researchers used the descriptive method in the study. Using stratified sampling technique, a total of 126 first year and second year students of the College of Medical Radiation Technology during school year 2007-2008 were included as respondents. The researchers adapted the research questionnaire of Remolona et al. (2005) in their thesis entitled ‘Factors Associated with the Academic Performance of Third Year Radiologic Technology Students”. Frequency, percentage, mean and t-test were used to statistically treat the data. The following conclusions are drawn: (1) Majority of the respondents are female and first year students; (2) The overall evaluation of factors associated with academic performance of the respondents, namely family, classmates and peers showed homogeneity in results, which was interpreted as very satisfactory. Heterogeneity with regards to extracurricular activities was observed, which was interpreted as satisfactory; (3) The mean academic performance of the respondents was 84.97, which was interpreted as satisfactory; (4) There was no significant difference in the factors affecting the academic performance of the respondents when they are grouped according to year level, thus accepting the null hypothesis of this study; (5) There was no significant difference in the respondents’ academic performance when they were grouped according to gender and year level, thus accepting the null hypothesis of this study; (6) There was no significant relationship between the different factors affecting the academic performance of the respondents, thus accepting the null hypothesis of this study.
