AN ANALYSIS OF THE FIVE-YEAR PERFORMANCE OF BSED-TLE GRADUATES IN THE LICENSURE EXAMINATION FOR TEACHERS
his study looks at the performance of the year 2011-2015 graduates of the Bachelor of Secondary Education major in Technology and Livelihood Education (BSED-TLE) from the Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST), Cagayan de Oro at the Licensure Examination of Teachers (LET). The relationship of preservice grade point average (GPA) and licensure examination was also explored. Two hundred twenty (220) graduates who took the LET within two years constitute the sample of this study. Descriptive statistics and Pearson’s r correlations between preservice GPA and LET ratings were determined. Results showed that the LET success rate of BSED-TLE graduates from 2011-2015 ranged from 31% to 78% with an average of 52%. Furthermore, a weak but significant relationship between preservice GPA and LET performance of graduates were found in all three areas: General Education, Professional Education and Major/Specialization. The results of the study can be good inputs for curriculum review and reform of the program and for the development of intervention programs to improve the performance of the graduates in the LET.
