The Josephson Institute of Ethics publishes a biennial report on the ethics of high school students throughout the U.S. The results from this study aid in analysis of student behavior, particularly moral and ethical reasoning. Additionally, the results can reveal potential risk factors and is a predictor of how they will behave as adults. For the purposes of this paper, only portions of the study relevant to moral character, parenting skills, and ethics in the workplace will be discussed. Moreover, connections will be made between the study findings and Kohlberg’s stages of moral development.
 have applied different decision tree algorithms like ID3(Iterative Dichotomiser) and C4.5 to predict students academic performances and checked their accuracy to choose the appropriate algorithm that could be effectively applied. Mohammed M. Abu Tair and Alaa M. El-Halees  have given a case study on how to use different data mining techniques like Association Rule Mining, Clustering, Classification and Outlier Detection at various phases to improve the academic performance of graduate
Parental education is additionally included as a control variable, considering parental level of instruction or help in study. The measure of educational background speaks to the subjects read in past degree by students. Egocentric Network Item We employed the egocentric approach for accumulating network data (Chung, Hossain, & Davis, 2005). In this approach, ego is an individual we are interested in and individuals having ties with ego are referred as alters (Scott, 2000). Sociometric questionnaire was used to collect data from female students.
Three forces constrain the amount of interaction: the strength A, which refers to biological and real time, age and level of students in its social context while he continues school; forces B and C which present practices of families and schools. The relationship between home and school and in particular the parent-teacher relationship is seen as very important by the researcher. Development and success of the students are at the center of this model. Another factor that appears to have an impact on students’ academic achievements, is the sex. Gender differences in relation to academic achievement are highly debated by scholars in recent decades (Chambers & Schreiber 2004, Eitle 2005).
CHAPTER 1 PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND This chapter includes the introduction, theoretical framework, and conceptual framework, statement of the problem, hypothesis, scope and limitation, significance of the study and the definition of terms used. Introduction The implementation of K- 12 is a way for the students to gain and achieve a higher quality and advanced education to be able to keep up with other countries.

A reference group is a group to which we compare ourselves. Reference groups, for example, fellow first year students, serve as a standard to which we measure our behaviours and attitudes. We use reference groups in order to guide our behaviour and attitudes and help us to identify social norms. (Williams, 2012:1) For example as a first year student to the university, you will analyse how your fellow students dress, speak, and behave in certain situations and then you might adapt to these characteristics and modify your clothing style, speech and behaviour (Williams,
I first heard about Qualitative Research in the research methodology class that I attended during my first semester at the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). Qualitative research is a type of research method used to explore issues at hand, understand subject matter, and answer research questions by analyzing unstructured data received from target participants. From what I understood in class, qualitative research is about finding out not just what people think, but why they think it. It is about getting people to voice their opinions in order that others can understand their motivations, feelings, and experiences regarding the subject matter. From what I understood of my class readings, the qualitative research method is designed
So studying is important, right? Why make a report on it? Our purpose of this study is to find out how much effort do first year Silliman students put on studying. We would also like to find out our fellow student 's preferences when it comes to studying and how effective it really is. We hope that from the information we have gathered, we can make a good description of how important studying is and what it means to college freshmen like us.
