The researchers will collect quantitative data by employing descriptive approach through field survey in the form of checklist questionnaire which aimed to analyze the determinants that significantly influence of correlates of performance and problems met on Pre-Board Licensure Examination for Professional teachers (PRE-LET) of BTHELE Graduates in EVSU in the year of 2017-2018
This is a correlational study using secondary data from multiple sources, namely: the students’ transcript of records at the JRMSC System Registrar’s Office, admission records at the JRMSC System Director of Admission, Testing and Evaluation Office, practice teaching records at the JRMSC System student teachers’ supervisors, mock LET ratings at the different LET review centers and actual LET ratings at the Professional Regulation Commission Central Office in Manila. Polit and Hungler (1995:178) asserts that this method would be used if the study aims to describe the relationship between and among variables and if one desires to develop a regression model. On the other hand, actual interview of 2003 BSE graduates of the JRMSC-System was employed to further substantiate the findings of this research. Research Environment The Jose Rizal Memorial State College System is the only State College in Zamboanga del Norte, one of the provinces in Region IX. JRMSC was established 25 on June 11, 1996 by virtue of Republic Act Number 8193, integrating the Rizal Memorial National Vocational School (RMNVS) of Dapitan City, the Zamboanga del Norte School of Arts and Trades (ZNSAT) of Dipolog City and Siocon National Vocational School (SNVS) of Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte. The RMNVS is made as the Main Campus of the State College. On January 15, 2002, the Katipunan National Agricultural School (KNAS) of Katipunan, Zamboanga del Norte was integrated to the JRMSC System by virtue of Republic Act Number 8760 and is now the fourth campus known as the JRMSC-Katipunan Campus.
This study covered two of the four campuses of Jose Rizal Memorial State College-System which offer Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSE) program, namely: JRMSC-Main and JRMSC-Katipunan Campuses. The JRMSC-Main Campus is strategically located in Dapitan City and offers engineering, arts and sciences, and teacher education. The JRMSC-Katipunan Campus is situated in Katipunan, Zamboanga del Norte, around 25 kilometers from the Main Campus and offers agriculture, computer science and teacher education.
The subjects of this study were the 2003 BSE graduates of the JRMSC System whose majors are English, Filipino, Mathematics, Social Studies and Physical Education, Health and Music (PEHM). This study included all of the 121 graduates who took the Licensure Examination for Teachers on August 31, 2003 in Cebu, Zamboanga, Cagayan and Ozamis Cities. Table 2 shows the distribution of the subjects according to their major.
Sources of Data
The data that were used in this study come from multiple sources. Grades in general education, professional education and major field subjects were obtained from the students’ transcript of records in the Registrars of the JRMSC Main and Katipunan Campuses; student teaching ratings were obtained from the Directors of Student Teachers’ Supervisors of JRMSC Main and Katipunan Campuses; LET review ratings from the Directors of the different LET Review Centers; JRMSC college admission test scores from the JRMSC System Director of Admission, Testing and Evaluation; and the LET ratings from the Commissioner of the Professional Regulation Commission in Manila.
Research Procedures Gathering of Data
Before the collection of the data needed for this research, letters of permission were sent to the following: the Officer In Charge (OIC) of the Office of the President of the JRMSC System; Student Teachers’ Supervisor and the Registrar of JRMSC Main Campus; Director of Student Teachers’ Supervisor and the Registrar of JRMSC Katipunan Campus; Directors of the different LET Review Centers; and the Commissioner of the Professional Regulation Commission in Manila. An authorization letter to secure a copy of the 2003 BSE graduates of the JRMSC System LET ratings from PRC Manila was also secured from the OIC, Office of the President, JRMSC System because PRC by virtue of Resolution No. 2003-143, series of 2003 states that request of individuals for research and study purposes shall not be granted. The requesting individuals shall be referred to the concerned school, college or university, thus authorization was secured from the JRMSC System Head of Office. Upon having the authorization letter and approval, the researcher personally gathered the data from the aforementioned offices except for the LET performance data from PRC which were mailed by PRC to the researcher. Coursework achievement, as indicated by the average grades of the students in the general and professional education and field of specialization subjects, was taken from the respondents’ transcript of records at the JRMSC Registrar’s Office. The entry competence as indicated by the JRMSC College Admission Test was taken from the JRMSC System Director of Admission, Testing and Evaluation Office. The student teaching achievement was taken from the office of the JRMSC
System student teachers’ supervisors while LET review achievement was taken 27 from the different LET review centers. On the other hand, the ratings in the general and professional education as well as in the field of specialization in the Licensure Examination for Teachers were taken from the Professional Regulation Commission Central Office in Manila. Treatment of Data The Grade Point Averages (GPAs) of the students’ coursework and student teaching achievements were converted into ratings similar to the ratings used in the entry competence and LET performance so that all quantitative data in this study would have the same direction relative to their corresponding magnitudes. The conversion of GPA to percentage rating was based on the JRMSC System Students’ Handbook and is shown in Appendix C. Moreover, the qualitative description indicated in the JRMSC Students’ Handbook was also applied to entry competence, LET review achievement, and LET performance. The weighted mean was used to determine the average grades and average ratings in the LET of the 2003 BSE graduates in the areas of general education, professional education and major field. Ranking and percentage were also utilized in this study to compare subjects’ entry competence, achievement and LET performance. Standard deviation was further used to determine the degree of homogeneity and heterogeneity of the subjects’ entry competence, achievement and LET performance. The researcher assumed that the predictor and criterion variables involved in this study have linear relationship thus, simple and multiple linear correlation as well as multiple linear regression analysis were utilized to answer the problems in this study. Pearson Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation or the Zero Order Correlation Coefficient was used to determine the relationship between the dependent variable and each of the independent or predictor variables. Correlation coefficients, which can vary from –1.0 to 1.0, helped to determine both magnitude and direction of pairwise relationships. The sign of the magnitude verifies whether the relationship is positive or negative, whereas the numerical part of the correlation indicates the magnitude of the correlation. The closer the correlation coefficient to 1.0 or –1.0, the stronger the relationship between the variables.Trustworthiness and Rigor
