This study sought to determine the correlation between course performance and situational analysis test in collision regulation (DWATCH 224L3) of third year BSMT students of Asian Institute of Maritime Studies. This study utilizes total of 72 students coming from the section of MT22-A3, MT22-B2, MT22-C4. Emphasis was put on the course performance and situational analysis in collision regulation in terms of theoretical grade, laboratory grade and situational analysis skills. The study used descriptive quantitative design, an empirical investigation of observable phenomena via statistical, mathematical or computational techniques. Specifically, a correlational study means getting the relationship between or among variables. The data gathered were treated with the use of the following statistical treatment: Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient to determine the significant relationship between course performance and situational analysis, Frequency Distribution is used to present the students’ performance on situational analysis test, Arithmetic Mean is used to determine the students mean performance in situational analysis. Based on the findings the mean theoretical grade of the respondents is 87.83 with standard deviation of 9.40 while their mean laboratory grade is 91.71 with a standard deviation of 7.32. In addition, the respondent’s final grade has a mean of 91.39 with standard deviation of 4.52. In terms of the performance of the third year BSMT students in the situational analysis test, the mean score of the respondents in the situational analysis test is 24.10 with the standard deviation of 4.86. The computed Pearson r between the theoretical grade and laboratory grades of the student is 0.63 with a p-value of 0.00. This means that there is a significant positive relationship between theoretical and laboratory grades of the respondents. Finally, the study found out that the course performance has a significant positive relationship to the situational analysis test of the respondents where the computed Pearson r is 0.536 with a p-value 0.00.
