Description

This study aimed to determine the extent of influence of the reading interest contingencies of high school students in relation to their reading comprehension skills. It utilized the descriptive-correlational research design. Data were gathered through survey and reading comprehension test to 230 respondents. The study showed that students did not meet the expectations required of them of their reading comprehension skills. The reading interest contingencies (attitude, intention, and subjective norms) were assessed to have high influence on students’ reading interest. Findings also revealed that there was a significant relationship between the students’ reading interest contingencies and their reading comprehension skills. However, the degree of relationship was weak which means that the three reading interest contingencies were not strong predictors of their comprehension skills. Moreover, a significant relationship was found between students’ profile (sex and family monthly income) and their over-all reading comprehension skills. However, the degree of relationship was weak which implied that the profile variable of the students slightly contributed to the reading comprehension skills. Meanwhile, the mean percentage score indicated in sex revealed that female students had a slightly higher level of reading comprehension skills compared to male. Finally, the data revealed that the sex of the students was not significantly related to their over-all reading interest contingencies. This implied that male and female students had more or less the same reading interest. On the other hand, the family monthly income of the students was significantly and directly related to the over-all reading interest contingencies. However, the degree of relationship was weak which means that their income slightly predicted their over-all reading interest contingencies.
