The theoretical/conceptual framework of this study is anchored on the selfdetermination theory by Edward L. Deci and Richard M.

Ryan because the learner
himself and the independent variables have a great role in shaping the learner’s
study habit. Self- determination is innate to an individual and together with the
psychological needs. This theory emphasizes on the individual’s motivation and how
external factors affects on the individual performance. The term motivation as
stated in the study of Rugesh Raghuwanshi (2008) is the result of processes,
internal or external to theindividual, which will arouse enthusiasm and persistence
to pursue a certain course of action. Motivation is important in an individual to do
once task and if one is notmotivated it is impossible to come up a good result. This
motivation could be possible if there is a positive stimulus that would bring out the
positive behaviour in the life of the learners. In such this paper put into
consideration the social environment that nurturesthe learner’s inherent potentials.
In connection with the self-motivation theory, the following independent variables
were considered: the students’ profile in terms of their parental involvement family
monthly income, learning styles, academic performances and the
ir teachers’
personality. These variables are because they are considered as the nurturing
socialenvironment and in one way or other these may influence the study habit of
thestudents.It is important to consider the study habits of the students on how they
managetheir time efficiently, and how to have effective varied study techniques to
keep themafloat. These things are important for them to form a good study habit.
These things areimportant in order to understand how these students respond to
the demands of acquiring good grades as expected by parents and school
authorities. In such thecooperation of the parents and teachers are needed because
they are going to takeanother step in learning process which is the secondary level
or high school. In additionto that high school is the training ground for college if
students started a poor studyhabit they will probably have a hard time to cope up in
college.There are books written of some authors that will help students how to have
aneffective study habit. According to T.G. Dawood (2006) that time management
skills are
very important as it helps to increase students’ productivity.
In addition with this the secret of effective study is found in the student’s
firm determination and desire to learn. In addition students must have a genuine
interestto learn and desire to study in the best possible way.

the model above shows the linkage between different factors and the study habits. Students who failed to meet the quota may view themselves as further alienated from school and academics. A student who has been separated from their friends could become depressed and develop poor self-esteem. and it is only practiced successfully when one really learns. Study techniques are methods which involve the application of a group of techniques to achieve a process result (VijaySheth 2005). because the student himself and the independent variables have a great role in shaping the learner’s study habit. in effect perpetuating their failure. which are quota. With regards to the theory. In such this paper put into consideration the social environment that nurtures the learner’s inherent potentials. The first independent variable is retention policy. Deci and Richard M. and how to have effective varied study techniques to keep them on track. subject/professor. According to Saga Brigs. Ryan. having a retention policy will help the student to strive more and study harder to meet their quota grade. It shows that study habit as a dependent variable is related to the independent variables. It makes students lower their self-esteem and makes them feel inferior. Whatever the reason is whether it will be positive or negative. internal or external to the individual. These variables are chosen because they are considered as the nurturing social environment and in one way or other these may influence the study habit of the shifters. It also focus on how social and cultural factors facilitate or undermine people’s sense of volition and initiative. in addition to their well-being and the quality of their performance. this will have an impact on study habits of the students. On the other hand. the quality of input invariably affects quality of output in this case academic performance (Acato 2006) This theory emphasizes on the individual’s motivation and how external factors affects the individual performance. competition. It is anchored on the selfdetermination theory by Edward L. Motivation is important in an individual to do once task and if one is not motivated it is impossible to come up a good result.It is important to consider the study habits of the students on how they manage their time efficiently. Moreover students learn to prioritize important task and balance their time efficiently. In addition it is one way of realizing the best method of performing a task which can be effective in studying. The term motivation as stated in the study of Rugesh Raghuwanshi (2008) is the result of processes. According to the research study of Eun Chun Seul(1999) she quoted from Morgan and Deese (1973) that studying is really an all-out effort and learning. . The selection of the model is based on the belief that. schedule and curriculum.This section proposes a theoretical framework within which the concept. This motivation could be possible if there is a positive stimulus that would bring out the positive behavior in the life of the learners. effects on the study habits of the shifters is treated in this work. which will arouse enthusiasm and persistence to pursue a certain course of action. .

such as overly heavy classloads or trying to squeeze in the demands of a job. Competition plays an important role in academic achievement because it often spurs students to pursue excellence. However. Declining academic performance is a consequence of poor time management -. failure to maintain a grade point average may trigger placement on academic probation -. A student who has an interest on the subject he takes is tend to be eager to learn and to study. Motivation has been center of attention among teachers throughout the years because it constitutes the backbone of learning process. The third variable is the lack of interest on the subject. Academic competition is advantageous when it challenges students to work harder on their studies and helps them get excited about academic content. According to Meyer and Sass. students takes an important step on the road to learning through motivation. However. Academic competition has its downfalls if it leads to high stress and anxiety. Since will to learn builds one of the basic elements of learning. Students may attempt to cope by dropping classes or withdrawing for a semester. heavy curriculum contributes to deterioration of motivation of the students. which puts a major barrier in front of effective language learning. The last independent variable that can contribute to the effects on study habit is the curriculum. Learning is a complicated and dynamic process. students may sometimes lose their willingness and interest towards lesson. and learning in real sense gets completed through motivation. The fourth variable is time conflict. especially in younger students who aren't equipped to handle the pressure. according to the College Parents of America.The next variable is competition. It has also a negative effect on their ability to engage properly with the deep conceptual approach on learning on what was being promoted by the course (Case and Gunstone. A college environment's freedom and flexibility can derail students who haven't mastered time-management skills.which is a warning to improve your performance or risk dismissal from the institution. 2002) .
