It plays a vital role in the development of human capital and is linked with an individuals well-being and opportunities for better living. It ensures the acquisitions of knowledge and skills that enable individuals to increase their productivity and improve their quality of life. This increase in productivity also leads towards new sources of earning which enhances the economic growth of a country. The quality of students performance remains top priority for educators. It is meant for making a difference locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. Educators, trainers and researches have long been interested in exploring variables contributing effectively for quality performance of learners (Crosnoe, Johnson & Elder, 2004). The approach is to focus on one of the ultimate goals - to determine the most influencing factor that greatly affects boarding, non-boarding and transient boarding teacher education students in relation to their academic performance. The researchers wanted to discover the reasons why some students were late in arriving to school. It was observed that non-boarding students could even go to school early, while some boarding students were late. There were those students also came late to school but had high grades. These statements kept the researchers asking how students coped up with such factors that might affect their academic performance.

2. Republic of the Philippines CENTRAL PHILIPPINES STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF TEACHER EDUCATION Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental 2 This study focused on investigating the factors affecting boarding, non-boarding and transient boarding teacher education students in relation to their academic performance. Theoretical Framework The prime objective of the school is delivering high quality education that produces well-educated, skilled, and mannered students according to needs and requirements of the dynamically growing market. This study was based on the Theory of Educational Productivity by Walberg, as cited by Roberts (2007) who determined three groups of nine factors based on affective, cognitive and behavioural skills for optimization of learning that affect the quality of academic performance: Aptitude (ability, development and motivation); instruction (amount and quality); environment (home, classroom, peers and television). Measuring of academic performance of students is challenging since students academic performance is affected by some factors namely: parental influence, time management and discipline, health conditions, peer influence and distractions. Some learners wish to progress in school, but they might not always perform as they wish, even if they feel they are trying their best. Some are not aware of factors that may hinder or improve academic performance and they may leave one frustrated. Knowledge is Power and only once people know of something can act on it.
