Education

A. General : To determine the correlates of the retention


variables of the College of Criminal Justice
Education of Naga College Foundation, Inc., for
S/Y 2010 to 2015, as basis for policy measures
for enhancement in licensure examination.

B. Specific :
1. To find out the correlates of some retention
variables of NCF College of Criminal Justice
Education to the Criminology Licensure
Examination.

2. To determine which of the retention variables


greatly affect to the Licensure Examination
Results.

3. To present measures to improve the retention


programs and board examination results.

SCOPE AND COVERAGE

This study focused on determining the correlates of retention program of

the College of Criminal Justice Education of Naga College Foundation, Inc., Naga

City from 2010 – 2015. Results of the retention variables obtained by the

criminology graduates during those years were included. Retention variables

were limited on intelligence quotient, emotional quotient, qualifying examination,

academic performance and mock board results.

METHODOLOGY

The researcher used the descriptive-correlational method of research

employing documentary analysis to gather data treated through Pearson’s r, t-

value, and coefficient of determination.

FINDINGS

1. Correlates between retention variables and CLE results showed that:

a. Moderate correlates between intelligence quotient and CLE results

were observed in 2013 (r=0.55) followed by 2014 (r=0.51), 2011

(r=0.46) and 2010 and 2015 (r=0.43). There was low correlation

between the two variables in 2012 (r=0.34).

b. High correlation between emotional quotient and CLE results was

noticed in 2011 (r=0.74). There were moderate correlation between

the two variables in 2010 (r=0.66), 2012 (r=0.55), 2013 (r=0.69) and

2014 (r=0.46). Negligence correlation was found in 2015 (r=0.06).

c. High correlation between qualifying examination and CLE results was

obtained in 2015 (r=0.75). Moderate correlation were observed in

2010 (r=0.57), 2011 (r=0.52) and 2013 (r=0.49). Negligible

correlation occurred in 2014 (r= 0.04).

d. Negative Moderate correlation between academic performance and

CLE results were seen in 2011 (r=-0.60); 2012 (r=-0.59), 2013 (r=-

0.67) and 2014 (r=-0.67). Negative negligible correlation resulted in

2010 (r=-0.02) and in 2015 (r=-0.06).

e. High correlation between mock board and CLE results were obtained in

2010 (r=0.72), 2014 (r=0.75) and in 2015 (r=0.75). Moderate

correlation were yielded in 2011 (r=0.68), 2012 (r=0.48) and in 2013

(r=0.54).

2. Retention variables that affected the CLE results were emotional quotient

in 2010 (r2=43.56), 2011 (r2=54.76), and 2013 (r2=47.61); qualifying

examination in 2015 (r2=56.25), academic performance in 2013 (r2=44.89) and

in 2014 (r2=44.89), and mock board in 2010 (r2=51.84), 2011 (r2=46.24), 2014

and 2015 (r2=56.25).

3. Measures devised to improve board examination results are revisiting the

existing retention program, creating a strong and high spirit of first year students

that is sustained until they graduates and take the Criminology Licensure

Examination (CLE) and enhancing students’ spirit and persistence to succeed in

the CLE.

CONCLUSIONS

Based on the findings, the following conclusions were drawn:

1. Correlates of retention variables to the board examination for

criminologist ranged from negligible to high. However, basing from the averages

of the correlates in six years, all the retention variables showed moderate

correlation to the CLE results. Hence, a significant correlation exists between the

criminology licensure examination results and the retention variables of the

College of Criminal Justice Education of Naga College Foundation, Inc.

2. Emotional quotient, qualifying examination, academic performance

and mock board examination results had good influences to the CLE results.

3. Measures devised to improve board examination results has

practical application. Hence, it is possible to implement and adopt to realize the

goals for what it was made for.

RECOMMENDATIONS

From the conclusions drawn, the following recommendations were

advanced:

1. Retention policies may be assessed annually in order to determine the

predictive validity for students to succeed in the Criminology Licensure

Examination.

2. Future studies may explore other variables that may affect CLE results of

criminology examinees like performance rating of the faculty and satisfaction

level of the students on the implementation of the course/curriculum map as

shown in the OBE-aligned syllabi of board subjects.

3. Implementation of the policy measures to enhance licensure examination

results be supported by the school administration; it may also be assessed

annually to determine its strengths and weaknesses.
