Utilizing Test Results To Design Instructional Modules: The CEM Professional Education Program Series (PEPS)

This paper discusses the potential of utilizing test data to design instructional modules for the in-service training of teachers in the core subjects of the school curriculum. It documents a major effort of the Center for Educational Measurement (CEM) in developing and instituting a series of professional education programs, the PEPS, for teachers of English, Mathematics, Science, and Filipino, across ten grade levels of basic education in the Philippines.The design of each module was based on patterns of academic strengths and deficiencies culled from an analysis of the results of diagnostic tests administered within five years to students of schools that participated in CEM’,s nationwide testing program.Results showed that areas with learning deficiencies in the lower grades tend to appear in the higher grades. The data served in prioritizing the contents and skills for which the firsttwenty modules were drafted. Other factors affecting , performance were considered in the choice of strategies employed. Highlights of module development, as well as the initial implementation and evaluation of the training series are presented.
