COED, UP-ACTRC CONDUCT RESEARCH ON LANGUAGE MATCH AND TEACHER ASSIGNMENT
The College of Education, in partnership with the UP Diliman Assessment, Curriculum and Technology Research Center (ACTRC), conducted a 'BASELINE STUDY ON LANGUAGE MATCH AND TEACHER ASSIGNMENT IN THE BANGSAMORO AUTONOMOUS REGION IN MUSLIM MINDANAO'.
The study was conducted in selected elementary schools in the Division of Tawi-Tawi from Feb 10 to March 02, 2020. It was funded by the Education Pathways to Peace in Mindanao. Dr. Wilham M. Hailaya, Dean for Education, served as the regional research coordinator.
The baseline study aims to explore the language mapping process implemented by schools to see any forms of match or mismatch that occurs betweern the mother tongue of the child and language of instruction, the language used in instructional materials, the language data in the Learner Information System (LIS), and the assigned/official mother tongue of the school. The study also seeks to describe the process of assigning teachers in schools, and will examine any match or mismatch between teachers' pre- and in-service preparation, and their teaching assignment.
Faculty members from the College of Education who took part in the research were Dr. Clarissa Derramas, Mr. Nasri Juhuri, Ms. Shielamar Judan, and Mr. Mohammadsharif Abdulhamid with two MSU TCTO alumni, namely; Mr. Aljon Alpuerto and Ms. Norwarti Jiana.
