Students Performance under retention policy
In 1998, University of the East College of Business Administration under her leadership was listed by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) as the number 3 top performing school with over 100 examinees. This continuous performance is the reason that it granted a second level re-accreditation by The Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA). Together with the retention policy there are several programs implemented in order to improve the ratings. Within the past 60 years, the college of business administration produced more than 350 top placers in the CPA Board Examination. Twenty-nine of these were first placers, while 50 were 2nd and 3rd placers. The rest dominated the 4th to the 20th slots. It continues to produce graduates who are highly placed in private and government institutions. The top nursing schools for 2009 for range 1 (with 1000

and up takers) are: Far Eastern University Manila with 1982 passers out of 2656 takers or 74.62% passing rate; Centro Escolar University Manila with 720 out of 1002 or 71.86%. It only proves that the retention has been effective.

Factors that influence the final grades of students in managerial accounting course in De La Salle University. Abstract:
Many research studies about appropriate pedagogic practices resulted from the worldwide concern about the teaching strategies that affect student-learning outcomes. This study attempts to contribute to the demands of continuous improvement in pedagogic practices of school by investigating the factors that predict the performance of students. In particular, the researcher employed statistical data of selected students of one of the business schools in the Philippines, De La Salle University, Manila (DLSU). The university offers Managerial accounting for business students, which combines the knowledge of management practice and the use of accounting information. Based on 478 observations, results from the statistical tests done revealed that the variables -number of quizzes, gender, and course affiliation--have an impact on the performance of students, as reflected in their final grades. Findings from this study have implications for educators and grade policy-makers who are interested in the assessment of student performance. These

implications can aid in developing remedial tools that lead to educational improvement. Subject:Accounting (Education)
