Abstract

This study aimed at describing the level of graduates’ competence in Machining Technology Vocational High Schools (VHSs) based on 2015/2016 academic year National Practical Exam (NPE) and to see if practical courses teaching and learning facilities meet the minimum standards criteria which can be used as the input in improving learning process. The study used observation and documentation as data collection instruments. Data were collected from four (4) VHSs using observation guides and NPE results reports with 369 as the number of NPE participants and all the participants were considered.
