WCAG 2.0 contains 12 guidelines organized under 4 principles: Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust (POUR for short). There are testable success criteria for each guideline. Compliance to these criteria is measured in three levels: A, AA, or AAA. A guide to understanding and implementing Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 is available at: https://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/

All iGovPhil Project services and content are currently moving towards WCAG Level A compliance. Work is being done to make the system fully compliant with this level.

PRC postpones September and October 2013 Optometry Written and Practical Licensure Examinations

Manila, August 16, 2013 – The Professional Regulation Commission announces the postponement of the September 18-20, 2013 written examinations and the October 1-4, 2013 practical examinations for Optometrist until further notice.

The Board of Optometry recommended the postponement of the licensure exam. “While the Board anticipates new appointments to the Professional Regulatory Board of Optometry, it has determined that there will be no sufficient time for the new members to formulate questions and prepare for the September and October 2013 licensure exams”, the Board said.

The PRC through Commission Resolution No. 776 dated August 13, 2013 cited the need for postponement due to the vacancies in the Board, leaving only two (2) members. The Board, as a collegial body, is short of the requirement for a quorum to validly perform its duties and functions, specifically in the formulation and extraction of test items, examination proper and releasing of results.
