Before the schedule of the defend of the thesis entitled “FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR AFFECTING THE SCHOOL PERFORMANCE OF GRADE IV & V PUPILS OF CABANGLASAN DISTRICT” the following questions were already answered for the presentation.
Why the Topic is Chosen for Study?
The researcher chosen this topic as her study because she is concern about the alarming disrupted behavior of Grade lV & V pupils in Cabanglasan District. The researcher wanted to know what are the disruptive behavior commonly exhibited by pupils and to know the effects of it to the school performance of the concern pupils.
It was observed by the researcher that not only theIt was observed by the researcher that disruptive behavior will not only affects the pupils who did it but also all the individual found in the class. She also observed that her co-teachers were usually complaining about the disruptive behavior that hampered their classroom instruction. She did hoped that through her study, she able to know more about disruptive behavior and at the same time will guide her how to address the disruptive behavior of pupils in school.
Disruptive behavior of children is part of their growing up and describing disruptive behavior are varied. Disruptive behavior may intensify from mild to severe; the behaviors may occur in only one setting or in many settings; or behaviors may be described as “normal” or “abnormal”, depending on the child’s developmental stage. (William H. Blahd, Jr., MD, . . .)
Grade IV and V pupils in Cabanglasan were observed exhibiting disruptive behavior by persistent tardiness, misbehavior, aggressiveness and overt inattentiveness. These pupils who have these kind of behavior must know or orient them how to deal with their environment well without displaying disrupted behavior. Expressing their anger and fear by disruption will affect not only their performance at school but all the individual found in the class.
Independent Variables Dependent Variables
AND LAZINESS EFFECTS ON SCHOOL PERFORMANCE
– OVERT INATTENTIVENESS
The schematic diagram in Figure 1 shows the variables reflected in the first box. These are independent variables that the Grade !V and Grade V pupils was exhibiting or displaying when having their disrupted behavior in the school and or during classroom instructions. Particularly, pupils showed disruptive behavior by persistent tardiness and laziness, misbehavior, aggressiveness and overt inattentiveness. In the 2nd box is the consequence of disruptive behavior and that is effect on school performance. This is the dependent variable. They usually have some failing grades on some subjects.
On the above performance of the child at school, usually teachers will be alarmed and they have no other recourse but the best they must do is to help the child is by informing the parents, telling them about the school performance of the child and the necessary moves to do for the welfare of the child.

At other times, when young people are routinely, very, very oppositional and defiant of authority , factors associating on it must be identified for the welfare of the child.

It was concerned with the conditions or relationships that exist, opinions that are held, processes that are going on, effects that are evident, or trends that are developing. It primarily draws attention to the present although it often considers past events and influences as they relate to current conditions.
