Good day!We are Mika Cuacoyes and Krysstal Cruz taking up Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. As a partial requirement for one of our major courses, Quantitative Research Methods (POLQUAN), we are tasked to produce a research paper related to politics wherein we have to look at the correlation of at least two variables. Because of this, we would like to find out whether there is a correlation between the political participation of a student and the knowledge they have with Philippine politics. We would like to request you to refrain from searching the answers to the questions and answer it through stock knowledge. Thank you for taking part in this study.
