Scope and Limitations
q Mainly relied on the statistical data provided by Ø Education Statistics Task Force of the CHEd and the PRC – 2001 up to 2003 Ø PRC Rating Division for 2004 and 2005. q “School performance” is operationally defined as the percentage of passing examinees from a particular school.” q There may be discrepancies in the data especially on school codes as these were captured from the data supplied by the examinees on the application forms.

Methodology
q A five-year percentage passing was computed based on the five-year total of passing examinees (P) relative to the overall number of examinees (N) of the school for the five-year period. %P = P/N x 100%. q In the analysis of school performance, the schools are categorized based on the total number of examinees fielded for every examination. Ø Category 1 includes schools with 1,000 or more examinees Ø Category 2 includes schools with 100 to 999 examinees Ø Category 3 includes those with 10 to 99 examinees Ø Category 4 includes those with less than 10 examinees
