Ma. Lourdes G. Narca, Dennis G. Caballes


Being an educator entails a lot of hard work, determination, and perseverance to nurture young students to do their task effectively and efficiently. Thus, the objective of this study is to re-examine the curriculum design for higher education institution, which leads us to know the curriculum component of San Sebastian College- Recoletos, Manila towards curriculum enhancement. In the introduction of the study, it was clearly emphasized that meta analysis is a method for systematically combining quantitative and qualitative data from several selected studies. With the purpose of identifying concrete answers from questions pertaining to the curriculum of the school. The quantitative data analysis is the method use for finalizing results gathered from students. This includes their honest thoughts about questions pertaining to the curriculum. The end results will be looking at the hard data-the number figures, which are converted into percentages to be able to determine the bulk results to the questions given and be able to evaluate and make an assessment. Likewise, the qualitative method has been administered to the area chairpersons, in order to know more about their concerns in the construction of their respective curriculum, since using the qualitative method analysis can mean subjective concerns and thoughts, geared towards possible curriculum improvements.

The researchers have done the best possible way on how to reach out to the alumni and area chairpersons who are the main respondents of this study. Thankfully, they were able to get a good number of respondents, who willingly answered the questions given to them. The results from the answers were carefully collated, evaluated, and interpreted. Thus, the  results can explain the logic of this study. It is in the conclusion where the researchers have explained further the assessment on the experimental results. A good insight from the qualitative results of the area chairpersons is about confirming their intemtions of making possible revisions in their curriculum, if the conditions calls for it. However, at the moment they have told the researchers that they have their reasons on why they have to stick first to the present curriculum, and be more vigilant for possible changes or improvements. The over-all impact of the study showed that the curriculum of SSC-R is subject centered, which is more focused and concerned on the needs of students for their adaptability in the outside world.
