  • As stipulated in DepED Memorandum No. 228, s. 2012, the Test of English Proficiency for Teachers (TEPT) and Process Skills Test (PST) in Science and Mathematics will be administered to all Grade III and Grade IV public school teachers w/ permanent items.
  • The Schools Division Superintendent (SDS) shall choose a Testing Center that can accommodate all the examinees, preferably near the Division Office.
  • The examination shall be conducted in two sessions on a Sunday. The total number of teacher-examinees will be divided into 2. First half of them shall take the test in the morning and second half in the afternoon for three (3) hours per session. No snacks break.

The list of examinees shall be prepared in each division with 30 examinees per room, alphabetically arranged regardless of gender and grade level taught. Only the teachers with permanent items shall be included in the list. This list shall be posted at the door in every Examination Room prior to test administration.

  • Each examinee should bring pencils with lead no. 2, clean sheet of paper and a sharpener; and must know the School ID of his/her respective school.
  • An authorized NETRC Representative shall be assigned to monitor the administration of the test in a designated division. He/she will conduct an orientation in the Division Office a day before the examination (Saturday)

The orientation shall be attended by the following: Division Testing Coordinator, who will serve as the Chief Examiner; and the Division Supervisors and School Principals who will serve as Room Examiners.

  • During the orientation, the discussant will be using the Examiner’s Handbooks (EHs) with the testing staff but these will be collected right after the orientation and to be packed in each ETRE to make sure that the EH will be available during the test administration.
