Purpose of the study: This study determined the research capabilities of public elementary teachers in the Schools Division of Nueva Vizcaya and also to determine the management support extended to them in terms of research support and research environment condition.
Methodology: This study employed the descriptive-correlational method. The descriptive method described the characteristics of the respondents, the level of research capabilities and dissemination, and management research support factors. Two hundred eighteen respondents were drawn from the population. A Stratified random sampling method was used to determine samples per stratum. The researchers observed research ethics and protocols during the gathering process. Descriptive-Inferential statistics were used to interpret the data.
Main Findings: The study found out that respondents who attained higher educational attainment and attended national training have improved research skills and are more knowledgeable in the research process and dissemination. The respondents are moderately capable in their research capabilities and research dissemination. The level of research capabilities was significantly correlated with educational attainment and training. Research support was inadequate; a favourable research environment was provided.
Applications of this study: The findings of the study provide data to the Department of Education to know the factors affecting the research capabilities of public school teachers. The DepEd school heads can come up with a workable plan to enhance research capabilities and manage their resources, policies, time, space, and personnel for maximum effect.
Novelty/Originality of this study: The fast trend in instructional technology and innovative approaches and teaching pedagogies, knowledge, and skills in the research of all academic professionals is essential. Conducting research becomes now mandatory in the educational institutions in the Philippines; thus, needs continuous assessment to produce a community of teacher-researchers.
