Background of the Study
People are the greatest resource of every country and the most effective agents of change, however, unless the people are equipped with essential knowledge, skills and right attitudes, these capabilities can never be a reality. To become effective agent and manager of change, people must be educated. They must be equipped with the knowledge, skills and right attitudes and values not only to function and live well in society, but also to be creative, productive and useful citizens of the country. These capabilities are most effectively developed in people through education. (Camarao, 1991).
According to President Ramos (1995), human resources development is a primary concern in the quest for global competitiveness. In fact the government must enhance and sharpen the people’s capabilities in order to cope with fast changing global environment particularly in the field of education.
The twenty-first century is upon us, and it is becoming clear with it, will come scientific and technical advances that will continue to change many things. All aspects of our culture are already being affected by the “computer revolution”. People are being continually influenced as technology changes our educational system, economy, social system, government, job opportunities, and creative expressions. Unless you intend to be a hermit, computers will affect you. In order to prepare our selves for this highly technical twenty-first century, individuals need to be technically literate and familiar with the tools of the day-electronics computers. Some experts think that, eventually, the person who does not know how to use a computer will be just as handicapped in performing his or her job as the person today who cannot read.
With this considerations, the researcher are inspired to conduct a study that would determine the theoretical and practical knowledge in computer of the third year Bachelor in Secondary Education students who are majoring Computer Education.
Review of Literature
A computer is an electronic device designed to manipulate data so that useful information can be generated. It is a machine in many ways similar to other machines. It runs on electricity. It contains number of parts that work together. It is designed to perform certain tasks.

The skills needed to be considered...
