Modes of Learning and Performance Among Graduates During a Pandemic in a State University in Romblon, Philippines


Quality education is a key commitment of Romblon State University. By providing a performance assessment of students exposed to modes of learning during a pandemic, this study aimed to describe their performance in different learning modalities during COVID-19. This study focused on all 2021 graduates from the College of Education in determining their modes of learning, municipal base, and majors pursued before and during COVID-19 and how these hypothetically affected their performances as indicated by their corresponding Grade Weighted Averages (GWA). Out of 68 graduates, 23 reside in Odiongan, while 29 pursued Music, Arts, Physical Education, and Health (MAPEH) Major. This study found that there was a significant difference in GWA of graduates in different modes of learning (F=19.81, p=0.00), municipal base (F=14.93, p=0.00), and major pursued (F=7.03, p=0.03). The highest GWA was manifested by graduates engaged in online mode (1.65) but not necessarily better off than in face-to-face and mixed modes (1.84). Graduates from 6 out of 12 municipalities performed the least during mixed mode throughout the height of COVID- 19. Moreover, graduates with majors in Biological Science and MAPEH, performed the least during face-to-face mode but performed best during the online mode, while graduates with majors in English and Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE) performed the least during mixed mode but performed best during online mode. Considering these key findings, university administration should undertake proactive measures to ensure its technology and dynamic interactions or feedback can reach impeded students from performing in a mixed mode of learning.
