The Part I includes the scores and interpretations of scores from the control and experimental groups; Part II is the discussion of the difference of the scores between control and experimental groups; and Part III is on the correlation test of hypothesis.

Rating Scale of the Fourth Year High School Students Scores
Scores
1-10 1-15 Interpretation Description
9-10 13-15 Highly Favorable The scores of the respondents show very high result through the use of high technology
7-8 10-12 Favorable The scores of the respondents show high result through the use of high technology
5-6 7-9 Moderately Favorable The scores of the respondents show satisfactory result through the use of high technology
3-4 4-6 Less Favorable The scores of the respondents show less satisfactory result through the use of high technology
0-2 0-3 Not Favorable The score of the respondents do not show satisfactory result through the use of high technology

Table 2 shows the interpretations of the scores of the students by test depending on the level of comprehension. This was used to determine the results of which technology must be used in enhancing reading comprehension.
