The study evaluated the analogous variations in pedagogical practices of theory implementations by educators and perceived quality of the program including attributes of comprehension, appliance of academic materials, professionalism of instructors, and program efficiency. A quantitative approach was incorporate in the methodology while collecting descriptive data. The analyses of central tendency and frequencies were conducted for the Student-Based Program Evaluation Scale indicated a highlevel of frequent agreement for attributes of each learning theory, and an inclusive significance in perceived program quality. Unsuitably, the Educator Perspective of Pedagogical Practices Questionnaire produced ineffectual results due to the insignificant quantity of educator reports. Although the questionnaire results are insignificant to validate the educators’ perceptions as a population, the participant’s responses to the questions in each category aligned with the attributes of the behaviorism and connectivism learning theories, in addition to, the correspondence of attributes in each learning theory presented.
