The problem and its setting
The extent of student’s learning in academics may be determined by the grades a student earns for a period of learning has been done. It is believed that a grade is a primary indicator of such learning. If a learner earns high grades it is concluded that they may also have learned alot while low grades indicate lesser learning.
However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would account for the grades. No single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been an interplay of so many factors – gender, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s ...view middle of the document...
However, many experiences and studies found out that there are also several factors that would account for the grades. No single factor can be definitely pointed out as predicting grades. It has been an interplay of so many factors – gender, IQ, study habits, age, year level, parent’s educational attainment, social status, number of siblings, birth order, etc. In fact, almost all of existing environmental and personal factors are a variable of academic performance.

This study is anchored on the following theories. These theories are referring to the relationship of study habits and academic performances.
According to Fielden (2004) states that good study habits help the student in critical reflection in skills outcomes such as selecting, analyzing, critiquing and synthesizing.
According to Nneji (2002) states that study habits are learning tendencies that enable students work private.
According to Acido (2008) data have revealed that the major difference between students with below average, average and above average reasoning skills centers on their study habits-whether they have good or bad study habits, and their attitude towards learning a particular skill-whether they are interested or not, are responsible for their learning or not, and take the responsibility over what they do or not.
According to Marcus Credé and Nathan R. Kuncel (2008) in their research at the University of Albany said that Study habit, skill, and attitude inventories and constructs were found to rival standardized tests and previous grades as predictors of academic performance, yielding substantial incremental validity in predicting academic performance.
According to Hope L. Graven (2008), on the relationship between an individual's amount of caffeine consumption during his/her study session and the individual's study habits showed that the main effect of drinking caffeine on exam preparation was not significant.
Independent Variables Dependent Variable
Independent variables as it influence the dependent variable of this research are on the bases of psychological and educational theories, principles and concepts.
Many studies say that learning are better acquired and mastered as soon as the learner attends to it. Gestalt psychology mentions the Law of Proximity referring to the way in which he tends to form groups according to the way they are spaced, with the nearer once being grouped together. As applied to learning, this refers to the closeness in space or in time. Furthermore, it explains why it is easier to remember recent events and hence more easily joined with the interest of the present in a common Gestalt. In application to learning process,...
