The analysis of the result shows that the component of restlessness is the most effective practice with the highest mean score of 4.5278 and standard deviation of 0.44633. This is followed by the component of adaptive capacity with a mean score of 4.4167 and standard deviation of 0.48714. The third most effective practice is represented by the component of absorptive capacity with a mean score of 4.3981 and standard deviation of 0.49002.
