Abstract
The main objective of this study was to develop a multi-device compatible, offline interactive digital Self-Learning Module called SHASP: Self-Help App in Statistics and Probability, which was designed to help the Grade 11 students to become independent learners. Specifically, it sought to answer the following questions: 1. What is the level of acceptability of SHASP: Self- Help App in Statistics and Probability in terms of the following pedagogical components namely learning content, assessment exercises, consistency, adaptability and appropriateness?; 2. What is the level of acceptability of SHASP: Self- Help App in Statistics and Probability in terms of the following technical components namely technical quality, ease of use and aesthetic value? The respondents of the study consisted of 30 select Mathematics teachers (15 from Lumban District and 15 from Kalayaan District) who evaluated the developed SHASP: Self-Help App in Statistics and Probability. The researcher gathered data and information on the lessons for the third quarter period in the said subject, giving close consideration on the DepEd-released self-learning modules, books, journals, video tutorials and other related articles and other forms of literature that can serve as supporting documents, give credibility to the boundaries of the lessons and immediate need for a workable solution. Regarding SHASP: Self-Help App on Statistics and Probability, the researcher focused on the usage of computer-based instructional materials providing a detailed step-by-step word problem solving as well as practice problems for assessment and enrichment. These are the results of this study. SHASP: Self-Help App in Statistics and Probability was given a remark of highly acceptable in all of its pedagogical components. The weighted mean are as follows: Learning Content (M = 4.55); Assessment Exercises (M= 4.58); Consistency (M= 4.49); Adaptability (M=4.56); Appropriateness (M= 4.48). It was also was given a remark of highly acceptable in all of its technical components. The weighted mean are as follows: Technical Quality(M = 4.50); Ease of Use (M= 4.51); Aesthetic Value (M= 4.61). Based on the data gathered and its findings, the researcher conclude that SHASP: Self-Help App In Statistics And Probability may be used as a learning material during the learners’ independent study. The researcher arrived at this conclusion as the teacher-evaluators agreed that there is sufficient learning content covered, adequate assessment exercises for mastery of each lesson, the lessons are consistent and related with each other, they are appropriate for the current grade level, may be used as an alternative learning material because it is adaptive, free from errors, easy to use and contains a visual design which helps maintain the learners interest.
