Abstract

This study utilized the descriptive design. The study skills were measured using the study skills inventory tool adapted from Dennis Congo. The academic performance of the respondents was taken from the Registrar’s Office of DLSHSI. One hundred seventy-three (173) out of 358 first, second and third year students of the College of Medical Radiation Technology were selected as respondents through stratified random sampling. Frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test for independent sample and analysis of variance were the statistical tools used. The following conclusions were drawn: 1) Most of the respondents were female, third year regular students, and enrolled in 24 academic units and above; 2) In terms of study skills, the respondents were very good in their textbook reading skills, note taking skills, memory skills, test preparation skills, concentration skills and time management skills; 3) The respondents had satisfactory academic performance during first semester of AY 2010-2011; 4) The respondents had the same study skills regardless of number of academic units enrolled, gender and year level. On the other hand, the respondents’ study skills varied in terms of student type. Regular students had better study skills than irregular students; 5) Number of units enrolled, gender, student type, and year level were not related to the academic performance of the respondents.
