Lyceum of the Philippines University (LPU) Batangas – Senior High School (SHS) has successfully transformed through their online education program for the academic year 2020-2021.
The global pandemic has hit the educational sector in the Philippines quite hard with many schools having to shut down. LPU Batangas SHS, on the other hand, has decided to adapt to the “new normal” and migrated its curriculum to an online education platform in-order to cater to the academic needs of its students. This shift towards the digital platform is LPU’s first step in making sure its students have a seamless access to education.
The Test of English for International Communication, or TOEIC, is one of the most widely-used and respected English-language assessments in the world. TOEIC is also recognized by thousands of multinational companies including LG Electronics, Shell, Accenture, and Canon. The assessment will help students certify their English skills and meet international standards to pursue a career or education here and abroad. The assessment will help them know their level of English proficiency, where their institution can also provide certain actions to help improve the curriculum and their students’ English Language capacity.
LPU Batangas SHS has consistently been using TOEIC to gauge the English proficiency level of its students. TOEIC helps its students identify their proficiency level and improve them with the help of intervention programs like the Lexile Program for Reading. The TOEIC provider in the Philippines, Hopkins International Partners integrates thousands of hours of content into the Learning Management System (LMS) of LPU Batangas SHS for all English learners to be able to improve their communication skills using material that is tailored to their particular English level.
The integrated education programs through the LMS allows students to easily access content and be able to practice their communication skills in the comfort of their own home. In addition, TOEIC provides international certification to students which helps them get recognized globally during the “new normal”. With the help of TOEIC Reading scores, students are able to find out their Lexile Reading level and are provided access which scientifically matches their TOEIC Reading Score with an appropriate levelled text through the Lexile Text Analyzer system.
LPU Batangas SHS has demonstrated that they have indeed adapted to the new normal by providing world class online English resources and certifying students’ English proficiency.
