Abstract

The study aimed to determine the extent of needs and problems of Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BSIT) students on computer programming skills; the relationship between the perceived needs and perceived problems; and the relationship between computer programming skills with the extent of needs and problems. The study was conducted to enhance the computer programming skills ofBSIT students of the Benguet State University by addressing perceived needs or problems.


Results show that there were facility-related, curriculum-related and teacher related aspects considered to be of much need and of great problem by students. The perceived needs are related to perceived problems. Facility-related and Curriculum-related needs are related to computer programming skills on IT subjects such as Problem Solving & Programming, Microcomputer Systems Organization, Database Management System and Object-Oriented Programming & Technology skills.
