Part of the goals of the College of Education of Tarlac State University is to be recognized by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) as one of the Centers of Excellence in Teacher Education Program in Region III and in the whole country and to be awarded level 4 program accreditation by the Accrediting Agencies of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP), Inc. In order to fulfill these noble targets, the college has embarked on the idea of implementing a retention policy to ensure excellent students and competent graduates who are considered to be highly motivated, committed, skilled, research-oriented and globally competitive imbued with positive values. In this regard, this study was conceptualized to validate initially the College Retention Examination (CRE) particularly the subject areas on General Education and Professional Education using content and face validity, item analysis and reliability coefficient. The validation process was a big step to ensuring quality instruction and applying a thorough assessment of learning. The validated CRE would pave the way towards sustaining the standards set by the CHED, AACCUP and other quality assurance agencies in the country as well as international organizations.
