Dean’s Honors List and Underachievers. Once students get into the University, their progress is monitored at the college level. The students‟ overall progress in the program is monitored primarily by the Vice Dean‟s Office, which regularly submits to the Department Chairs a report on two categories of student performance: (a) the Dean‟s Honors List, and (b) the Underachievers. The Dean‟s Honors List recognizes superior scholastic achievement. The „dean‟s listers‟ are entitled to unlimited absences in their academic courses the trimester after they get into the list. The “underachievers”, on the other hand, are students who have high failure rates. They are advised to go for guidance and counseling. At the end of every school year, students are required to take an institutionalized Critical Thinking Examination administered by ITEO. Topics covered in the exam include abstract reasoning, math, science, and language understanding. Results of the exam depict the students‟ progress on the said topics and their maturity (see Exhibit 18–Critical Thinking Exam). Individual Courses. Once accepted at DLSU, students take about 60 courses, depending on their major. Each of these courses assesses the students‟ performance on various activities (e.g., seatwork,
