Chavez Jr. fjrchavez@cmc.edu.ph <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This study attempted to investigate the responsibility, readiness, work-related stress and resistance to change of elementary and secondary public-school teachers. Four hundred teachers from M’lang Central district, Cotabato participated during the conduct of this study for the S.Y. 2021 – 2022. This study employed a path analysis method using quantitative approach. The data gathering tool contained an adopted questionnaire coming from the different authors. Mean, standard deviation, Pearson product moment correlation, multiple regression analysis and structural equation modeling were used in statistical tool. Based on the findings of the study, readiness was described as very high. Meanwhile, the responsibility, work-related stress and resistance to change were described as high. The results also revealed that there is a significant relationship between responsibility, readiness, work-related stress and teachers’ resistance to change. Responsibility and work-related stress have significantly predicted the teachers’ resistance to change compared to readiness. Hypothesized model 5 have successfully met the criteria set by each index. This means that the model fits well with the data which can best explain the resistance to change of teachers.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2023-08-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Southeast Asian Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies https://cmc.edu.ph/research/index.php/journals/article/view/132 MODELLING ACCOUNTANCY STUDENTS’ PREFERENCES FOR A REVIEW CENTER: A CONJOINT ANALYSIS 2023-08-11T04:40:05+00:00 Czar Ryan Ubungen cubungen@cmc.edu.ph John Vianne Murcia jmurcia@cmc.edu.ph <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>This study was conducted to determine the preferences of accountancy students for a CPA review center.

The convergent mixed-methods design was utilized in this study which had chosen 85 private school teachers in Davao City with teaching experiences from the academe for at least 3 years as respondents, 7 participants for an in-depth interview, and 7 participants for focus group discussion. The quantitative results highlight the mediating effect of organizational culture on the relationship between affective commitment and turnover intention. The results also indicate that affective commitment level of teachers is high. Meanwhile, the qualitative findings showed that there were four themes that came up in the analysis of data such as: (1) commitment and loyalty; (2) workload and challenges; (3) satisfaction and rewards; and (4) work environment and organizational culture. In addition, the qualitative findings support this by emphasizing the importance of a positive work environment and organizational culture. Participants described their work environment as conducive to teaching and learning, and they appreciate opportunities for training, development, and adequate resources. The quantitative results were positively confirmed through the qualitative findings in the focus group discussions and in-depth interviews.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2023-08-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Southeast Asian Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies https://cmc.edu.ph/research/index.php/journals/article/view/137 PROBING EMPLOYEES’ ISSUES ON SALARY SCHEME POLICY: EXPLORATORY APPROACH 2023-08-11T05:06:41+00:00 Merdy Grace P.

The respondents of this study are the 150 non-teaching personnel of Private Schools in Region XI. A convergent parallel strategy was employed using an adopted survey questionnaire. The mean, standard deviation, Pearson r-moment correlation and Linear Regression Analysis were used as statistical tools. Qualitative data collected from in-depth interviews and focus groups was subjected to thematic analysis.&nbsp; Result indicated that on the level of innovative work behavior in the terms of idea generation and idea promotion was found to be very often evident while idea realization has the lowest mean. The level of organizational learning evidently revealed very often with strategic leadership having the highest value. The level of work engagement, vigor, dedication, as well as absorption described a very high value. The relationship between variables reflects the correlation between innovative work behavior and organizational learning to work engagement. The results show that among the independent variables, it is only the organizational learning significantly predict work engagement (p&lt;.05). In the qualitative phase of the study, three essential themes emerged from the statements of the participants namely: job responsibilities and engagement; motivation and commitment; and feedback and recognition. On the other hand, work engagement can be attributed to the personnel organizational learning. Furthermore, organizational learning has a significant relationship, and with direct effect on work engagement.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2023-08-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Southeast Asian Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies https://cmc.edu.ph/research/index.php/journals/article/view/135 PATH ANALYSIS OF SENIOR TEACHERS’ ICT ADOPTION IN TEACHING AS INFLUENCED BY THEIR ICT SKILLS, PERCEPTION AND MOTIVATION 2023-08-11T04:58:04+00:00 Shelly Ann N.

This study included 402 senior teachers from the locality of Lebak and Kalamansig, province of Sultan Kudarat for the S.Y. 2022 – 2023. This study employed a path analysis method using quantitative approach. The data gathering tool contained an adapted questionnaire coming from the different authors. Mean, standard deviation, Pearson product moment correlation, multiple regression analysis and structural equation modeling were used in statistical tool. The result of the study showed that the level of senior teachers’ ICT adoption in teaching, ICT skills, perception, and motivation are high. Furthermore, the three independent variables (ICT skills, perception, and motivation) had a positive significant relationship with the dependent variable (ICT adoption in teaching). Moreover, the three independent variables were significant predictors of the dependent variable which implies that ICT skills, perception, and motivation is significant for senior teachers to alleviate their integration of ICT in teaching. The best fit model is hypothesized model 5. The model shows that ICT skills is a factor that explains the relationship of perception and motivation on senior teachers’ ICT adoption in teaching.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2023-08-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Southeast Asian Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies https://cmc.edu.ph/research/index.php/journals/article/view/125 ACADEMIC CHALLENGES OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES: A QUALITATIVE STUDY 2023-08-11T02:50:38+00:00 Marissa E.

Quiambao Jr. vquiambaojr@cmc.edu.ph <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p>This study is aimed to assess the academic challenges of Indigenous Peoples in Arakan, Cotabato. According to research, indigenous peoples face academic challenges that have an impact on their educational outcomes. This study investigates the experiences of indigenous peoples, determines their academic challenges and analyzes the solutions they use to deal with these issues. This study used a qualitative narrative research approach, and the findings were gathered through an in-depth interview with ten (10) indigenous people and focus group discussion of seven (7) participants who were all purposefully sampled. The interview data was analyzed using thematic analysis. The themes that emerged in the academic challenges of indigenous peoples are poverty, discrimination, and parental influence. In dealing with their academic challenges, the themes, personal motivation and academic aspirations emerged. The findings indicate that academic challenges are experienced by indigenous peoples in Arakan, and that these issues have affected their education. On this basis, it is recommended that intervention programs be established to address these issues. More research is needed to better understand the underlying connections of these academic challenges and how they influence one another. It is also recommended that in delving into these topics, a more sophisticated research approach with a larger research sample be used.</p> 2023-08-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Southeast Asian Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies https://cmc.edu.ph/research/index.php/journals/article/view/133 MODERATING EFFECT OF SYSTEMATIC CLASSROOM OBSERVATION ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE BEHAVIORAL COMPETENCIES AND PERFORMANCE OF TEACHERS: A CONVERGENT DESIGN 2023-08-11T04:48:44+00:00 Angie L. Auman aauman@cmc.edu.ph Cynthia S. Asuncion casuncion@cmc.edu.ph <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p>This convergent mixed study examined the moderating effect of systematic classroom observation on the relationship between the behavioral competencies and performance of teachers perceived by elementary teachers of Tulunan, Cotabato. The researcher conducted convergence of quantitative and qualitative data hoping to help teachers, school principals and future researchers to address some gaps about systematic classroom observation. This study was participated by 200 teachers, evaluating classroom observation examining its influence on the teachers’ teaching performance and behavioral competencies measured using adapted survey questionnaire and in-depth interview. Results revealed that systematic classroom observation has significant relationship and significant influence on both teaching performance and behavioral competencies among elementary school teachers. Additionally, it revealed that the behavioral competencies and systematic classroom observation significantly predicts the teaching performance among elementary school teachers. Moreover, study widened the idea on the perceived impact of systematic classroom observation to the performance of elementary teachers with emerging themes in the structured theme are improvement of planning and teaching skills; assessing content knowledge; and develop teaching strategies. Additionally, the perceived challenges of elementary teachers in the systematic classroom observation revealed emerging themes in the structured theme are learners’ behavior; class size; classroom management and cause of stress. Furthermore, perceived help of the systematic classroom observation to the behavioral competencies of elementary teachers revealed emerging themes such as guide for improvement; evaluation and assessment; ability to accept constructive criticism; advocate professional growth; and receives technical assistance. Lastly, this study revealed that the significant relationship of systematic classroom observation to both teaching performance and behavioral competencies converge with the emerging themes of its impact to both teaching performance and behavioral competencies. This study recommends investigating other external components such as individual and family variables are explored to get a clearer picture on other factors that will have any impact on teachers’ performance and behavioral competencies which in turn are determinants of behavioral issues that happen within the organization.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2023-08-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Southeast Asian Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies https://cmc.edu.ph/research/index.php/journals/article/view/121 A PATH ANALYSIS OF QUALITY OF WORK LIFE AS ESTIMATED BY LEADERSHIP BEHAVIOR, JOB SATISFACTION AND ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE OF TEACHERS 2023-08-11T02:06:15+00:00 Feralyn V.

Chavez Jr. fjrchavez@cmc.edu.ph <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>This study employed mixed methods research specifically convergent design to determine the mediating role of coping strategies and psychological capital on the well-being of teachers. The data were gathered from selected private school institutions educators in Davao City, Philippines.&nbsp; Sets of validated adapted survey tools with a five–point Likert scale and interview guide were used to gather data.&nbsp; The statistical tools used to treat the quantitative data were mean and multiple regression analysis, while in the qualitative phase, thematic analysis was employed. In the quantitative phase, results showed that the level of psychological capital and coping strategies were rated high while well-being was rated as moderate.&nbsp; The results reveal that coping strategies significantly mediate the relationship between coping strategies on the relationship between psychological capital and well-being of teachers (z=2.03, p&lt;.05). Further, the findings indicate that coping strategies play a significant role in mediating the connection between psychological capital and the well-being of teachers (z=2.03, p&lt;.05). Additionally, when the coping strategies were included in the model, the impact of psychological capital decreased from a beta value of .300 to .204. This suggests partial mediation, indicating that coping strategies partially account for the influence of psychological capital on teachers' well-being. In terms of lived experiences of participants as regards well-being, three themes emerged which included coping with stress and busy schedules, balancing personal and professional, and teacher’s work and contribution to the institution.

The papers were initially identified from Google Scholar and research databases. After applying inclusion and exclusion criteria, four cross-sectional studies were included in the analysis, involving a total of 696 respondents. The findings revealed a significant and positive relationship between remote work arrangements and job satisfaction (r = 0.204, 95% CI: 0.128-0.277). The heterogeneity test indicated acceptable variability in effect sizes, suggesting similarity in research design and characteristics of the included studies. The funnel plot and Egger's test provided no evidence of publication bias. The Begg and Mazumdar Rank Correlation Test also indicated no indication of selective reporting or publication bias. Furthermore, remote work arrangements were found to have a positive impact on job satisfaction. The extent and type of remote work, as well as job attributes and moderating factors, were identified as important considerations in this relationship. These findings enhance our understanding on how remote work arrangements contribute to employee satisfaction and carry significance for the development of organizational policies and practices.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2023-08-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Southeast Asian Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies https://cmc.edu.ph/research/index.php/journals/article/view/129 LIMITED FACE TO FACE READINESS OF TEACHERS: AN EXPLORATORY SEQUENTIAL DESIGN 2023-08-11T03:39:58+00:00 Monalyn G.

Yano jyano@cmc.edu.ph Felix C. Chavez Jr. fjrchavez@cmc.edu.ph <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>This study aimed to empirically investigate the intention towards acceptance of technology further examining proposed models that have evolved from the technology acceptance model (TAM). The purpose of the study is to provide actual data on the acceptance of technology-based instructional materials. An adopted survey questionnaire was conducted to gather data from 300 elementary and secondary elder school teachers of the Department of Education—Schools Division Office of Cotabato, Magpet East and West Districts from the Municipality of Magpet, Cotabato. A structural equation model (SEM) with a multiple regression analysis was conducted to examine quantitative data. The results revealed that elder teachers have very high levels of behavioral intention to accept new technologies. Furthermore, they exhibit high levels of social support resources, psychological capital, and career commitment. A significant relationship&nbsp;was identified between behavioral intention and psychological capital and social support resources, but not significantly correlated with their career&nbsp;commitment. Findings further show that the intention to use technology-based instructional materials is directly and significantly predicted by social support resources, psychological capital, and career commitment. Additionally, the model fit variable showed that the model demonstrating the relationship between social support resources and career commitment, as well as its impact on psychological capital and behavioral intention to accept technological resources, was the best fit model of behavioral intention to accept technological resources. This model demonstrates&nbsp;the direct influence of social support resources and career commitment on elder teachers' intent to integrate technological learning resources. The results provide as a starting point for additional research and as a tool for problem-solving regarding elder teachers' intentions to integrate technology as a guide for effective&nbsp;decision in the design and development of training and techniques. Further, the results can also be used in the resource allocation procedure to guarantee the growth of elder&nbsp;teachers receiving technical support, hence enhancing educational preparation of numerous top pedagogical environment designers.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2023-08-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Southeast Asian Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies
