UNDERSTANDING TEACHERS’ PERCEPTIONS, ATTITUDES, AND PRACTICES IN OUTCOMES-BASED EDUCATION

Alvin G. Alma Jose

 

Abstract:

This study aims to find out how Outcomes-Based Education (OBE) is viewed by college teachers and how it is practiced in two higher education institutions. A total of 82 faculty members were involved in the study using purposive sampling. The questionnaires used in this study were adapted from two previous studies investigating teachers’ perceptions and attitudes toward the implementation of OBE. Using the descriptive method, it was found out that teachers have positive perceptions on the implementation of OBE, including assessment, monitoring, and instructional practices. Moreover, attitude toward OBE was likewise favorable. In conclusion, this study highlights the advantages that could be derived by both teachers and students in the implementation of OBE. It has been recommended that OBE seminars and workshops for teachers be frequently conducted in order for them to fully understand and successfully implement it in their respective institutions.
