ASSESSMENT OF LEARNING

Source: June 30, 2020 draft of the unpublished DepEd Order titled Policy Guidelines on the Implementation of Learning Delivery Modalities for the Formal Education

1. Classroom assessment, namely, formative and summative assessments, shall be conducted by the teachers to track and measure learners’ progress and to adjust instruction accordingly.

These shall be done in paper-based, offline, or online assessment format, whichever is appropriate to the context and needs of the learners, to enable them to participate fully in the assessment process and be assessed fairly.

2. The learning outcomes in the form of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values shall be assessed.

To capture evidence of learning, learners shall prepare their portfolio/e-portfolio to include written works and products and performances whether in hardcopy, softcopy, or a combination of these and shall be assessed using rubrics. Testimonies of parents and other adults in the family/learning facilitators, and community leaders shall form part of holistic assessment.

3. A learning portfolio/e-portfolio is a purposeful collection of student work that comprehensively demonstrates not only academic achievements but also the effort put forward by the student as well as the demonstrated progress in achieving learning outcomes (Arter, 1990; De Fina, 1992).

The e-portfolio is a digital collection of student work samples where teachers can include the use of technology – based tools such as word documents, graphics, sound, and video. Enclosure No. 7 provides the guidelines on the preparation of portfolio and e-portfolio.

4. Summative tests shall be administered in school for learners on F2F learning and blended learning. For those who are on distance learning, summative tests may be administered when physical classes shall be allowed and possible in their respective areas or through appropriate online platforms.

5. A separate Order shall be issued on Classroom Assessment and Grading System in light of COVID-19.

Official Statement

Instead of giving periodical exams, there will only be written output and performance tasks, DepEd Usec. Diosdado San Antonio explained.

“Ang periodic test, 20 percent ng grade eh. Ang i-a-administer mo, isang araw lang. Ang feeling namin, that’s very unfair to the learner, lalo na ang mga learner ngayon, iba’t iba ang situwasyon,” said San Antonio in an interview.

Usec. san Antonio said that students can write reflections of their readings, or record a speech explaining their understanding of a lesson to show how much they have learned.

“Kapag ganyan, nilalagay sa portfolio, iniipon ang proof – what they can do and understand,” Usec. San Antonio added.
