K+12 Mathematics Teachers’ Perception On Instructional Objectives, Instructional Control And On The School Factors Affecting Instruction

[Full Text]



Jenyliza T. Ucang



Instructional control, instructional objectives, K+12 Mathematics Teachers perception, school factors affecting instruction.



A descriptive study was conducted employing survey questionnaire to ninety-five K+12 Junior and Senior High School Mathematics teachers for SY 2017-2018 to look into the perception on instructional objectives, instructional control and on the school factors affecting instruction. Results revealed that the teachers have moderate emphasis on mathematical objectives but they have heavy emphasis on basic mathematical skills objectives and on reasoning objectives. Results also revealed that the teachers have minimal control over curriculum and pedagogy. In terms of the factors affecting instruction, results showed that facilities and equipment as well as students and parents have a heavy impact on posing a problem for instruction while time constraints moderately pose a problem for instruction.
