Statistical treatment
The data to be collected in this
study will be organized and classified
based on the research design and the
problems formulated. The data will
be coded, tallied and tabulated to
facilitate the presentation and
interpretation of the results using
the following:
1. Percentage
The percentage will be used to determine the
quantitative relation to the whole response. The process
of gathering the percentage was dividing the frequency
(sum of responses) by the total number of responses. To
compute for the percentage (P)
P = (f/n)*100
P = percentage
f = frequency
n = total number of respondents
2. Weighted Mean
Weighted mean will be used to measure
the general response of the survey samples,
whether they agree to a given statement or not.
The formula in computing weighted mean is as
f –weight given to each response
x –number of responses
xt – total number of responses
3. Likert scale
The likert scale is a pre-arranged
system, one dimensional scale from
which the interviewee will be choosing
one option that reflects to their opinion.
The scoring system for each item must be
such that a high score consistently
reflected a favorable response and a low
score consistently reflected an
unfavorable response. There are
classically five options to be offered.
The equivalent scale in the questionnaire
was presented below:

4.01 – 5.00 5 Strongly Agree

3.01 – 4.00 4 Agree

2.01 – 3.00 3 Undecided

1.01 – 2.00 2 Disagree

0.00 – 1.00 1 Strongly Disagree
