PRC pressed to release previous LET questionnaires for experts to review
The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) was pressed to allow selected education sector stakeholders access to the previous questionnaires that had been used in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) so that these may be evaluated and assessed with the aim of improving teacher education in the country.
“It is not the policy of the PRC to release previous LET items but many are asking PRC now and in the past to release a copy for experts to review and I think that’s important,” Senator Joel Villanueva said in a Senate hearing.
“If the goal is to look and evaluate the items in LET [and] if items in LET are coming out in Morayta and in different bookstores, why not make it official so that perhaps our friends from CHED, DepEd, and PNU can review them?” he added.
Coordinating Council of Private Educational Associations of the Philippines managing director Joseph Noel Estrada supported Villanueva and said that there is not against the law for such action.
“The PRC is not prohibited from releasing exam questions after the conduct of Board exams. Republic Act 8981 merely mandates that the PRC should ensure and safeguard the integrity of all licensure examinations,” he said.
