CHEd sets plans to address  PH students' low int'l assessment tanking


MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) on Wednesday vowed to implement measures aimed at improving Filipino students’ performance in international assessments following the country’s poor showing in the 2022 Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa). 

CHEd said that it would collaborate with the Department of Education (DepEd) to enhance learners’ performance in international large-scale assessments (ILSAs), including Pisa.


“We want to realize the national education vision laid out in the Philippine Development Plan (2023-2028) in order to ‘ensure that all Filipinos are able to realize their full potential to keep pace with the envisioned socioeconomic transformation,’” the commission said in a statement.


CHEd also pledged to involve Centers of Development (COD) and Centers of Excellence (COEs) in Teacher Education to thoroughly analyze the recently released Pisa results and create comprehensive solutions for the country’s consistently poor performance.

“We shall expand the Technical Panel for Teacher Education (TPTE) to include DepEd curriculum development and learner assessment specialists along with other leaders in education transformation to address quality preservice teacher education,” it added.

CHEd likewise said that it would provide a special learning module to help teachers grasp the nature and significance of ILSAs in promoting accountability for learning outcomes.

In addition, CHEd said that it intends to phase out teacher education degree programs in underperforming teacher education institutions to address teacher quality in the country, hoping it will positively impact learner outcomes.

2022 Pisa’s results, which were released on Tuesday, showed that Filipino students are lagging in mathematics, science, and reading.

Out of 81 participating countries, the Philippines ranked third from the bottom in science with an average score of 356.


The Philippines ranked sixth from the bottom in mathematics with an average score of 355, and sixth from the bottom in reading with an average score of 347.

In response to the results of the international assessment, DepEd hosted a national forum on Wednesday aimed at addressing the issue.
