ABSTRACT

The study aimed to predict and assess the performance of college students taking up the new general education subject as mandated by Commission of higher education (CHED), Mathematics in the Modern World (MMW). The paper sought to describe the level of performance of the students in their pre-enrolment requirements, such as high school grade point average (GPA) and admission test result, determine and predict these requirements to their mathematics performance and assess the level of difficulty in the topics covered in the subject. There were 100 freshmen students in Bukidnon State University participated in the study. All of them are under the College of Business. Result revealed that the students performed well in high school. However, they are not doing well in college, specifically in Mathematics. The pre-enrolment requirements, such as high school GPA and admission test result do not significantly predict the mathematics performance in college. It has a weak positive relationship with 3% shared variance with MMW’s performance. It is, though, contributed to the difficulty experienced by the students in the said subject.
