MSU-IIT’s College of Education (CED) made it again this year as top performing school in the September 2016 Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) for Elementary level. CED garnered 84.13% passing percentage, with 53 passers out of 63 who took the exam.
With this distinction, CED continues to be one of the country’s premier Teacher Education Institutions. This is the fifth time that CED ranked in the Top Ten Performing Schools of the LET.
In the secondary level of the same licensure exam, two students made it to the top ten. Janeth G. Canama ranked 9th with 88.20 rating and Gemma G. Lucaña ranked 10th with an 88.00 rating.
The Institute’s College of Education once again made it to the roster of premier Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) in the country after garnering a passing percentage of 80.77 in the Elementary level during the August 2014 Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET), surpassing the National Passing Percentage of 35.74%.
This is the fourth time that CED has received such distinction in the Elementary level. The most recent was in 2011.
As stipulated in PRC Resolution No. 2010-547 series of 2010, schools with 50 or more examinees and with at least 80% passing percentage qualify as top performing schools in a licensure exam.
Sixty-three out of 78 examinees passed the exam.

This year’s batch of enrollees at the MSU-IIT LET Review Center completed a free, five-day Seminar-Workshop on Assessment and ICT Multimedia Integration in the 21st Century Classrooms in April and May.
The training would help prepare the participants for future jobs especially teaching where ICT skills and trainings could give them the edge in getting employed.
The same seminar-workshop was conducted twice, on May 26-30, 2014 and on June 9-13, 2014 at the CED ICT Laboratory and World Links Training Center to accommodate 74 participants.
The first three days of the training covered the Intel Elements Course on Assessment in the 21st Century Classrooms which offered an in-depth look at assessment so that the participants could plan, develop and manage student-centered assessments later in their own classrooms.
The last two days focused on UNESCO’s ICT Multimedia Integration for Teaching and Learning which gave participants a broader, yet more refined knowledge of ICT so they may successfully integrate multimedia resources in their lessons.
The MSU-IIT LET Review Center trainers or resource persons and facilitators were the CED ICT Team composed of Dr. Ruben L. Abucayon, Prof. Shelanee Theresa P. Ruales, Prof. Vita S. Caparoso, Prof. Amelia T. Buan, Ms. Roxan A. Consolacion, Ms. Avril Joy R. Ramayan, Dr. Rebecca M. Alcuizar, Prof. Joy R. Magsayo, and Mr. Jun Karren V. Caparoso. Ms. Vanessa B. Zabala, served as training manager.
The participants did not only learn new things in the training but also received certificates of completion during the five-day training, or an equivalent of 40-hour training credit. An ICT training may exempt them from taking the computer literacy examination of DepEd for teacher applicants. –by Jun Karren V. Caparoso, CEd for OC-OPI
