An evaluation and assessment was conducted by asking the
participants to fill up the survey forms. Forty-seven (47) survey forms
were accomplished on the basis of the following: (1) Quality of Service; (2)
Timeliness of Service; and (3) Courtesy of Staff.
Also,

the

participants

provided

their

comments/suggestions/recommendations in the blank spaces provided in


the survey form.
The participants used numbers to rate the Legal Aid Program, 5
being the highest and 1 being the lowest. 5 means outstanding; 4 means
very satisfactory; 3 means satisfactory; 2 means fair; and 1 means poor.
The method we used to determine the over-all evaluation was the
Mean Method. The mean is the average of the numbers: a calculated
"central" value of a set of numbers.

The result of the evaluation is as follows:
