Dr. Carlo P. Magno contributed a lot of scientific works; he developed surveys that help assess and improve the country’s educational system, a key to every Filipino’s development for their needs and aspirations. Some of the scientific works that he has developed are:
Tools for Learning and Performance
Academic Self-Regulation Questionnaire (SRQ-A)
The questionnaire targets young students and aims to discover the reasons why children work to accomplish their school work. Two versions were created in order to take into account children with learning disabilities. The questionnaire contains 4 choices, namely, “Very true,” “Not very true,” “Sort of true,” and “Not at all true,” each having a score of 4, 3, 2, and 1 respectively.
Volunteerism Questionnaire aims to know the experiences of volunteers within an organization. Specifically, it aims to know the reasons for volunteering and what outcomes of volunteering are being experienced by each volunteer.
Assessment for Engineering Potential (AEP)
The AEP is a comprehensive assessment designed to identify students with the potential to succeed in the upper level of the engineering program.
These contributions of Magno, along with a few more of his tests, theories, and standardisation he has devised, have joined a pool of greatly studied pieces that have helped apply psychology in the field of education. The Philippine society, ever since, has been bent on enhancing the standard of education for the youth, believing that this is the answer to the issue of being third world. Applying his works to society further improve students’ learning, teachers’ ways of teaching, and the general system of education in the country.
