Hearing hygiene, hearing loss
A descriptive quantitative research design was used in this study. Total population sampling is the sampling technique used in the study. The researchers integrated various literature of high confidence level regarding hearing hygiene to formulate a questionnaire with a Likert Scale intended for the CRS student body. The behaviors compiled in the questionnaire are either (1) protective to hearing and preventive of hearing loss or (2) may lead to hearing loss. Google Forms, a survey administration application was used to collect information from the participants who willingly participated in the implementation. The obtained data was connected to a spreadsheet on Google Sheets to automatically record the answers and populated the responses from the survey in real-time. Descriptive statistics was used to describe the results obtained from the Forms. The said data are presented in tables, charts, graphs, and percentage frequencies. The findings of this study are suggestive rather than conclusive due to the low number of participants (297) representing the whole CRS population (953).Based on the gathered data from the summative scale of different behaviors done by the participants across courses, sexes and duration of being enrolled in CRS, it can be suggested that different behaviors in hearing hygiene are relatively done. It would then pose that behaviors concerning hearing hygiene do have a role in a students life.
