Academic Achievement and Performance in the Licensure Examination for Teachers of the Elementary Education Graduates from Mindanao State University- Maigo School of Arts and Trades
Keywords:Academic Achievement, Licensure Examination for Teachers Performance
This study was conducted to look into the degree of relationship between the academic achievement of the Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) major in General Education graduates from the Mindanao State University-Maigo School of Arts and Trades (MSU-MSAT) and their performance in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET). Specifically, performances in the general and professional education components of the above variables as well as the cumulative grade-point average (CGPA) of these graduates and their LET final ratings were correlated. The study used descriptive-correlational method. Documentary analysis was the main tool employed in gathering data. Pearson Product-Moment Coefficient of Correlation (rxy) was used to determine the degree of relationship between the two variables while t distribution (t) was utilized to test the statistical significance of the correlation coefficients. It was disclosed that majority of the graduates had good academic achievement. LET passing percentage was high, and most of the graduates obtained a satisfactory rating. Correlation with regard to general education was descriptively low. Correlations as to professional education, and between CGPA and LET final ratings were equally moderate. However, results of the tests on the significance of the correlation coefficients pointed out substantial dependence of LET ratings upon the graduates’ academic achievement. This means that academic achievement is a good LET determinant suggesting that BEEd major in General Education curriculum should be properly implemented and monitored to meet efficiently and effectively its learning standards, and produce quality and LET-ready graduates.
