Quantifying Senior High School Students’ Satisfaction in the Implemented Modular Distance Learning
Asian Journal of Education and Social Studies,
Aims: The absence of data that could inform education stakeholders on what demographic variables play a significant role in the implementation of modular distance learning (MDL) and on areas of it, so that programs and innovations may be initiated to improve its implementation, encouraged the conduct of the study. The study aimed to assess the level of satisfaction in MDL of Senior High School Students’ as a whole, and in areas of Content of Self-Learning Modules, Teacher-Support, Parental Support, and Assessment and Feedbacking. It also seeks to determine in which demographic variables their level of satisfaction exist and whether their satisfaction has a correlation with parents' highest educational attainment or none.
Methodology: This study utilized descriptive-comparative and descriptive-correlational design. It was participated by 346 Senior High School Students drawn through multi-stage sampling. Generated data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, Mann-Whitney U test, and Spearman rho rank correlation.
Results: Results have shown that senior high school students are generally satisfied with the implementation of modular distance learning. Inferential results revealed that a significant difference exists between grade levels (P=.013). There was no significant difference when students were grouped according to track (P=.34), and availability of gadgets for academic use (P=.12). Interestingly, findings show that parents’ highest educational attainment influenced students' level of satisfaction (P=.000) in modular distance learning.
Conclusion: The study concluded that instructional and academic support provided by teachers and parents of Senior High School students remains vital, regardless of their grade level. Furthermore, the experiences they have in the implementation of MDL, which lead to their satisfaction or non-satisfaction in its implementation may be associated with their parent's level of education.
