Whereas for the growth status ofÂ Posdaya, they were classifiedÂ into three classes, namely Pemula, Madya, and Mandiri. Eighty percent (80%) out of the evaluated Posdayas, they fall under Posdaya Madya. Better management of the immediate environment of Posdaya, enabled them to manage better their secretarial, partnership, economic, and health aspects. While for the educational performance,Â it was not correlate very much except with the secretarial aspects, which its correlation was quite significant,Â at level 0.05.
