The interview is considered as one of themost effective methods in collecting data. The researchersinterviewed the Filipino Tourist in Fort Santiago,Intramuros, Manila.Data Gathering Procedures The following procedures were undertaken in the neededdata: 1.

Data that were not included in the questionnaires were generated through instructed interview. This comprised the secondary data. 5. Distributed questionnaires were retrieved, collected, piled and grouped. Respondents were tallied, tabulated, analyzed and interpreted.Statistical Treatment of Data The data gathered were compiled, collected andsummarized separately per group. The responses for each itemwere categorized based in the specific problems raised. The following were utilized in the treatment of thedata: 1. Frequency. It is the actual response to a specific item/question in the questionnaire where the respondent ticks his choice. 2. Percentage. This was used as descriptive statistics or something that describes a part of the whole.
  8. 8. 50 EULOGIO “AMANG” RODRIGUEZ INSTITUTE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COLLEGE OF HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT 3. Weighted Mean. This was used to measure the respondents’ assessments. Multiplying each value in the group by the appropriate weight factor does it and the product is summed up and divided by the total number of the respondents.Formula: ( f5xf5 ) + ( f4xf4 ) + (f3xf3 ) + (f2xf2 ) + (f1xf1 )WM= N The assessments provided by the respondents wereinterpreted by using the 5-point Likert Scale Method forinterpretation of the assessment of the respondents on theFilipino Tour Guide as perceived by the Local Tourists. Theconcept of the boundary of numerals used the followingscales: Assessments of the respondents on the Filipino TourGuide as Perceived by the Local Tourists.

The mean Formula: ∑X Where: M = the arithmetic mean M== ∑X = sum of the scores N N = number of the scores b. Standard Deviation Formula: Where: SD = Standard Deviation SD = ∑d2 ∑d2 = Sum of the difference 2 N in variance Squared (x – X)The formula for t-test is
