Several complaints regarding the lack of sufficient school facilities have been a great concern nowadays at Polytechnic university of the Philippines In Santa Rosa Campus. With regards to this, certain components Like lack of computers, Improper lighting and poor air quality affects the overall academic performance of the students.
The purpose of this study is to discuss the effects of lack of computers in the laboratory of the said school which greatly affect the academic performance of the students who are using the computers. This study will provide specific suggestions on how to improve and provide sufficient school facilities which greatly aids in the academic life of the students resulting to better learning leading to a brighter future.
It concludes with a recommendation that the school administration should provide larger budget for the funding of the improvement, development and establishment of the school facilities. This study alms to help in the academic performance of the students so that they will not have a hard time to adjust their self-relying on their subject. The study also alms to provide better to the people irking hand In hand to achieve the greatest goal of the school which Is providing the best quality of education.
Statement of the Problem The study aims to know the problems of the effects of lack of computers in the laboratory of Polytechnic university of the Philippines in Santa Rosa Campus specifically, if seeks to answer the following. 1. What is the profile of the student in terms of : A. Age B. Gender C. Course 2. How the students are able to handle their time if there is lack of computers? 3. Are the students are having a hard time to adjust their time and skills because of the lack f computers in the laboratory?
Importance of the Study The result of the said study is to give solutions to the following: Students - Who use the computer laboratories, so that they will know how they can divide and maximize their time in other things that they will do. Future researchers - The result also helps other researchers because they will have some idea about the said topic and they can use the extra knowledge and information to make their study more often. Teachers - This study also helps the teachers and professors to make their work easier and to lessen their hard time In teaching.

Hypothesis In this research we expect how many factors of lacking of computers in
Polytechnic University of the Philippines of Santa Rosa City, likewise, we expected to lose or otherwise we will reduce the reason enough to have some computer in our school. Alternative Hypothesis There is a significance effect of lacking of computers to the students who uses the laboratory of Polytechnic University of the Philippines of Santa Rosa City. Null Hypothesis There is no significance effect of lacking of computers to the students who uses the laboratory of Polytechnic University of the Philippines of Santa Rosa City. Chapter II Review of Related Study and Literature This Chapter includes the Foreign and Local Studies and Literature Related to the researcher topic.
Foreign Literature According to the article of Joanna Goode, a professor of education studies in the University of Oregano's College of Education said, have the resources, but even today it is only the technologically savvy students who seek them out. "The students who really need the help get no outreach programs to help them learn about campus technology programs such as workshops, resources and free software," she said. She said also that we have to start thinking about the digital divide in much more employ ways and provide learning experiences for students to build their identities so they have a chance for being successful in college across majors, so that their school. Local Literature Foreign Studies In America, between the academic school years of 1991-92 and 1996-97, inventories of computers grew 186% with an additional 1. 2 million computers added in 1996-97 alone. In 1996-97 there were an estimated 6. 3 million computers in virtually 100% of the nation's schools (Market Data Retrieval, 1997 as cited by U. S. Department of Education, AAA). In 1998, 89% of schools had Internet connections (U. S. Department of Education, 1999 as cited by U. S. Department of Education, AAA). However, technology alone does not make a difference; rather the key element is how it is used. The National Education Technology Plan 2004 (U. S.
Department of Education, 2004), reports that today nearly every public school has access to the Internet, but the real issue lies in the lack of adequate training and lack of understanding of how computers can be used to improve learning. Local Studies Chapter 3 Research Methodology Research Design - To be able gather necessary data, the researchers utilized the secretive method, using both qualitative and quantitative approaches. Respondents of the Study - The chose respondents were all the courses who use the laboratory from 1st to 5th Year College of the said school. Instrument Used - The students of PUP Santa Rosa who have been chosen in this study accomplished a survey questionnaire for us to know their sides about the said issues Data - Gathering Procedure - The data for this research were collected using a survey questionnaire.
The survey was created using suitable questions modified from related research and individual questions formed by the researcher. The survey was impressed of 20 questions, which were related to the participant's perception regarding effects of lack of computers in the laboratory of PUP-ISRC. After the professor validated the questionnaire these were distributed to the students with courses who use the laboratory from 1st to 5th Year College of the said school. The researchers assured confidentiality of their survey sheets since the identities are not important. The researchers also understood that people's consciousness may also affect their effectiveness and honesty in answering the survey, and so the researchers gave people the option of being anonymous.
The respondents were even time to respond and then the researchers collected the surveys after they answer it all. There were no incentives offered for participating in the research. Formula which is, n N stands for the whole population of the students with courses who uses the computer laboratory. While e stands for the margin of error, the researchers used 0. 01% as the margin of error.
