SIPP, Internship Program, Evaluation study, Implementation, Effectiveness


The study aimed to analyze and determine the effectiveness of the implementation of Northwest Samar State University based on CMO No. 104 s. 2017. I used a descriptive-evaluative research design employing the use of an e-questionnaire to gather relevant data. These data were analyzed and collated with suitable statistical tools and were interpreted and discussed consequently. The results of the study revealed that the SIPP coordinators’ and student interns' perception of the implementation of the SIPP is “effective”. However, there is a significant difference in the perceptions of the two groups of respondents. Irregular inspection/monitoring of coordinators because of the difficulty in the mobility of the coordinators is considered a problem encountered in the implementation. The findings of the study suggested that the University should implement more services for the effective and efficient implementation of SIPP.
