ENGLISH COMPETENCCE AND ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF FRESHMAN ENGINEERING STUDENTS OF ISABELA STATE UNIVERSITY

Helen T. Asio.

Abstract
This study sought to evaluate the level of English competence and academic performance of
freshman engineering students of Isabela State University and its relation to their profile. The respondents were
161 freshman engineering students enrolled at Isabela State University, Ilagan and Echague Campus. The
researcher made use of the Descriptive-Normative and Inferential Method, Chi-square to test the null hypothesis
and the Pearson-r to test the correlation of the variables.
Based from the results of the study, the overall English competence and academic performance of the students
was on the “average”. The personal profile of the respondents such as age, gender, dialect spoken, high school
graduated from and parents’ occupation were found to have no effect in their English competency level and
academic performance.
The English competence of the students under the key indicators as “Stress/Intonation”, “Verbal Ability”,
“Reading Comprehension”, “Correct Usage”, “Identifying Errors”, “Spelling, Punctuation” and “Logical
Organization” was not affected by the students’ profile. However, the English competence of the respondents has
a correlation with their academic performance.
Based from the findings of the study, the researcher strongly recommends that all English teachers and
administrators must initiate programs that will surely reinforce the utilization of English language in their
respective campuses.

Key words: academic performance, correct usage, competence, identifying errors, logical organization, punctuation, reading comprehension, verbal ability, spelling, organization
