Keywords:mathematics achievements, modular learning modality, attitudes of Grade-8 students, parental involvement
The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of mathematics achievement of grade-8 students in modular learning modality on the attitudes of the grade-8 students in terms of happiness, interest, and enthusiasm and the impact of mathematics achievement on the parental involvement in terms of support and assistance. 50 grade-8 students belong to section A were utilized in MSU-Sulu Laboratory High School and their parents. The grade-8 students have answered questionnaire on their attitudes when the achievements are low, moderate and high. The researcher grouped the mathematics achievement according the average grades bracket such as 90-above as high achiever, 85-89 as moderate achievers and 75-84 as low achievers. Weighted Arithmetic Mean was used to determine the average grade. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient was used to determine the impact of the achievements on the attitudes of
students and parental involvement. (10)20% of the students are high achievers, (26)56% are moderate achievers and (14)24% are low achievers. The high achievers are very happy, highly interested and very enthusiastic answering their modules. The moderate achievers are happy, interested and enthusiastic to answer their module. The low achievers are moderately happy, moderately interested, and moderately enthusiastic in answering their module. The hypothesis is rejected, there is positive high correlation between high, moderate and low achievers grade-8 students in terms of happiness, interest and enthusiasm. The parents highly supportive and exert more assistance to the high achievers, moderately supportive and exert less assistance to the moderate and low achievers. The hypothesis is rejected, there is positive high correlation between the achievements of the grade-8 students and parental involvement in terms of support and assistance. The study recommended to strengthen the follow-up orientation for both parents and students to enhance positive attitudes regardless of the level of achievements of the students. The parents should strongly support and assist the students regardless of the achievement levels.
