design. This method involved the collection of data in

order to answer the questions regarding the level of

satisfaction on Marine Transportation in the University of

Cagayan Valley for School Year 2016-2017.

The technique will be used under descriptive method is

the purposive survey approach and evaluation. Questionnaire

survey will be employed to gather data in this study.

Respondents of the Study

Respondents of the study will be the Third Year Marine

Transportation students of the University of Cagayan Valley

for SY 2016-2017. There are 200 officially enrolled

students but the researchers will be using purposive

sampling to get the 75% of the actual strength of the

students enrolled for the 1st Semester of the SY 2016-2017.

Data Gathering Tool

This study will employ survey questionnaire to assess

the level of satisfaction of the respondents in the Marine

Transportation. Part of it will be patterned from the study

of De Leon (2012) entitled Satisfaction Level of Maritime

Schools in the Philippines and will be revised to suit the

present study.

The survey questionnaire will be divided of the

following.

Part 1 of the questionnaire determines the profile of

the respondents.

Part 2 of the questionnaire determines the level of

satisfaction of the respondents in the Marine

Transportation in terms of the Maritime Instructors,

Maritime Facilities and Maritime Training Program.

Part 3 of the questionnaire proposes actions to

improve the quality of maritime education.

A modified Likerts scale will be employed for the

purpose of determining the degree of responses of the

respondents.

Data Gathering Procedure

The researchers will make use of different procedures

in gathering the necessary data for the study. The

2 1.67 2.33 Much
1 1.0 - 1.66 Not at all

Furthermore, Statistical Package for Social Sciences,

Version 16.0 will be used to run the descriptive

statistics, independent samples t-test and regression

analysis.

Pearson (r) will be used to test significance level

between the level of satisfaction of the respondents in the

Marine Transportation assessed by themselves in terms of

the above dimensions, and test significance level between
