Emaas, Alchel Grace R. Obja-an, John Roger A. Ortega, Wilfred Y. Reyes, Ma. Jeanette F. III 17 BSE Music Education

Background of the study


Music is vital to the development of a human being. It is important to the development of the individual because music involvement is considered a fundamental expression of human behaviour. The need for education in music is indeed important. Music education is the dissemination of music knowledge, skills and appreciation. (Del Valle, 2011)

Background of the study


With this in mind the Philippine Normal University has been offering the course Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSE) major in Music Education for a long period of time. Since then the course has produced numerous graduates who have been music teachers in the public and private schools.

Background of the study


With all the requirements needed to be fulfilled by the students taking up the BSE Music Education curriculum and with the demands of music education in the Philippines, the quality education received by the graduates are a major thought.

Background of the study


According to the Task Force on Higher Education (1995) the indicators of quality graduates are performance of graduates in board examinations, accredited status of courses and employability of graduates.

Background of the study


According to Task Force on Higher Education under the Commission on Higher Education (1995) in its recommendation on its Comparability and Equivalency study, a study should be conducted that will identify the factors affecting quality of education and that schools must be encouraged to track their graduates after graduation in order to get accurate information on their employability and acceptability which is one of the three indicators of Quality of Higher education.

Background of the study


A tracer study is an effective feed-back and follow-up tool to obtain continuous quality of the programs and curricular offerings of the university to align with the needs of the field and international standards of producing world-class music teachers.

Background of the study


The need of a tracer study in the Music unit is necessary as four studies have only been found by the researchers. Thus this study is deemed necessary by the researchers.

Conceptual Framework
The tracer studys objective is to assess academic studies and their present profession in which tracer studies could be used to provide valuable evaluating results of education and may be used in the development of the institution in the context of quality assurance. (Schomburg, 2003)

Conceptual Framework
In order to do this we must be able to assess what is the quality of the graduates which in this case is the Batch 2000-2005. Since quality assurance is the goal of tracer study we must define what quality is. According to the Task Force in Higher Education (1995)

Conceptual Framework
In order to do this we must be able to assess what is the quality of the graduates which in this case is the Batch 2000-2005.

Conceptual Framework
According to the Task Force in Higher Education (1995), an organization supported by the Commission on Higher Education, there are three main indicators in of quality graduates are
performance of graduates in board examination accredited status of courses employability of graduates.

Conceptual Framework
Out of these three indicators of quality, we could assess through tracer study is employability and LET Results.

Conceptual Framework
Employability is the ability to be able to obtain employment. The ability of the graduates to obtain employment after graduation indicates fast transition from the school to work.

Conceptual Framework
Employability is the ability to be able to obtain employment. According to the Graduate Tracer Study by (Arcelo, 2001) employability can be measured through
personal factors including age, sex, civil status and parental education, academic factors which in this case is Philippine Normal University and BSE Music Education. Employment factors which include the quality of work, unemployment factors and school related factors.

Conceptual Framework
The researchers would like to focus on personal factors, the given academic factors and employment factors. Through this a baseline data would be made in order to obtain factors which could affect employability and on employment factors waiting period, starting pay, nature of job taken and relevance to the BSE Music education curriculum.

Conceptual Framework
The Licensure Examination for Teachers is created in the establishment of the act Philippine Teachers Professionalization Act of 1995. In the previous years the graduates of BSE Music Education have successfully passed the examinations.

Conceptual Framework
In order to assess if graduates have received quality education, we must know if they have
passed the let examination examination rating and what date they have took the examination.
