The statistical treatment used in this study were percentage, frequency, weighted mea, ANOVA, and pearson product correlation coefficient. Summary of Findings The study revealed the following findings: 1. As to profile of the Respondents 1.1 Gender Based on the data presented showing the frequency and percentage distribution of the respondents, it revealed that 23 of the...
