Main Article Content
In a typical science curriculum with different scientific disciplines (Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Earth Sciences) taught in every quarter, it is important to determine the difference in the performance of students under each discipline. In this study, the comparison of quarterly performance in Science of Grade 7 Students was examined. Wherein, the consolidated quarterly grades in science from the previous school year (June 2018 - April 2019) from five sections with a total of 272 male and female grade 7 students were used as data. It employed a quantitative research design using a One-way Analysis of Variance ( ANOVA) to determine the significant difference in the mean grades per quarter. Additionally, an interview with the science teachers who handled the samples was conducted to gather qualitative data to further explain the results. The results of this study revealed a mean of 83.50 from the combined grades in the second quarter which is the lowest among the four quarters. However, the results from ANOVA generated a significance of .123 (p≥.05) which means that there is no significant difference between the grades in the first, second, third and fourth quarter.
