Balinguit, GA., Javier, JA., Reyes, DJ., Tuaño, M. (2015). The Correlation of Parental Affection and Course Preference holding Extrinsic Forces Constant. Department of Psychology, Far Eastern University.
The study’s aim is to know whether there is a significant relationship between the course preference and parental affection holding extrinsic force constant. A survey was produced by the researchers, approved by the Professor and answered by 60 random respondents from different college and universities.
After the data was gathered, the researchers convert the answer of the respondents on the said questionnaires into scores. After the survey was tallied, the researchers started encoded in to spss, software that can calculate statistics. The researchers then used partial correlation, and also Pearson’s r for the coefficient of determination.
Then the spss gave the results, r= 0.266 and p=0.042, 2-tailed, with these results the researchers can say that the null hypothesis is rejected, wherein the null hypothesis says that there is no significant relationship between parental affection and course preference holding extrinsic forces constant.
The researchers conclude that there is a weak relationship between the three variables, and only 0.03% of the student’s decision is influenced by the extrinsic forces. The higher the parental affection of an individual, the more possibility it will obey, but still part of the decision of the student will be based upon the extrinsic forces in their environment.
