The study aimed to determine the effects of the inquiry-based “Online General Education Mathematics GEM Reviewer” on the mathematics performance of the 130 graduating teacher education students who are enrolled in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) Review subjects in 1st Semester of School Year 2021 – 2022 at Caraga State University Cabadbaran City and University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines, Cagayan de Oro City. The study used the One-Group Pretest-posttest Design to determine the performance of the Graduating Teacher Education Students in the area of General Education Mathematics. This is an experiment where one group undergoes a pre-experimental (Pretest) evaluation followed by an investigation of the effects of the “Online GEM Reviewer” on the mathematics performance of the users and subsequently, a post-experimental evaluation (Posttest). The researcher employed a Mathematics Performance Test to determine the level of the knowledge of the students. Mean, standard deviation and percentage were used to establish the level of mathematics performance of the Graduating Teacher Education Students and t-test was used to determine the effects of the usage of the “Online GEM Reviewer”. The results revealed that the use of Inquiry-Based “Online GEM Reviewer” influence the mathematics performance of the Graduating Teacher Education Students.
