Abstract

 

This study aimed to evaluate selected high schools’ campus papers in district IV of DepEd- Nueva Ecija. The study’s participants were 64 Teacher Education college students enrolled at Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology, San Isidro campus, during the SY 2016-2017. An evaluation standard for campus papers by Cruz (2016) was utilized in the study, applying the 4-point Likert scale. The data analysis used Frequencies, Percentages, and Weighted Mean. The study’s findings revealed that the selected high school campus papers in District 4 of DepEd Nueva Ecija adhere to the principles of laying out the front page of the campus papers. The nameplate is attractive, readable, of suitable size, and in harmony with general make-up (Mean 3.48). It is also excellent in placing folio that contains the date, issue, volume number, and the names of the city or province. Respondents considered the front page of their high school papers with very good frontpage with attractive and consistent style (Mean 3.20). There is consistency in the headline styles, decks, column width, column rules, and use of white spaces. Further, the nameplate is attractive and properly placed, as well as rules in using jumps or fillers are observed. There is also no “tombstoning” observed nor misplaced boxes or fillers at the bottom of the column (Mean 2.78). A very good mark was also given to the placing of heads that conform to accepted make-up practices (Mean 3.05). The campus papers meet the standards of the readers, especially the students.
