The Features of the K – 12 Assessment

The K to 12 curriculum will have specific assessment specifications and design for each of the two delivery modes, the formal education and the alternative learning system. K to 12 assessment is learner-centered and carefully considers its learning environment system. It includes indicators of 21st century skills such as research, analytical/critical, practical, and creative. Both cognitive and non-cognitive skills/tasks such as values, motivation, attitude, behavior traits, and interpersonal are included in the assessment. Moreover, there is no duplication of testing efforts and approaches in the K to 12 assessment.

The Classroom Assessment under K – 12 Education Program

Classroom assessment is one of the daily tasks of teachers and students in individual classrooms to know the level of learning of students and the effect of teachers’ instruction. Thus, formative assessment (assessment FOR learning) is emphasized to ensure learning. Every learner is also encouraged to engage in the process of self-assessment (assessment AS learning). Summative forms of assessment (assessment OF learning) are also a part of curriculum assessment under the K to 12 curriculum. In the K to 12 curriculum, the assessment process involves the use of a wide array of traditional and authentic assessment tools and techniques for a valid, reliable, and realistic assessment of learning. Traditional and authentic assessments complement each other. They are not mutually exclusive. Moreover, it puts greater emphasis on assessing understanding and skills development rather than on mere accumulation of content.

student assessmentThe Rating of Learning Outcomes

To ensure that there is standardization in teaching and learning, assessment will be standardbased. As such DepEd issued an order stating that assessment will be done at four levels and will be weighed accordingly. The levels are defined as follows:

  • Knowledge refers to the substantive content of the curriculum, the facts and information that the student acquires.
  • Process refers to cognitive operations that the student performs on facts and information for the purpose of constructing meanings and understandings.
  • Understanding refers to enduring big ideas, principles, and generalizations inherent to the discipline, which may be assessed using the facets of understanding.
  • Products/Performances refers to real-life application of understanding as evidenced by the student’s performance of authentic tasks.

At the end of the quarter, the student’s performance will be described based on the prescribed level of proficiency which has equivalent numerical values. The proficiency level is computed from the sum of all the performances of students in various levels of assessment. Each level is described as:

  • Beginning- The student at this level struggles with his/her understanding; prerequisite and fundamental knowledge and/or skills have not been acquired or developed adequately to aid understanding.
  • Developing- The student at this level possesses the minimum knowledge and skills and core understandings but needs help throughout the performance of authentic tasks.
  • Approaching Proficiency- The student at this level has developed the fundamental knowledge and skills and core understandings and, with little guidance from the teacher and/or with some assistance from peers, can transfer these understandings through authentic performance tasks.
  • Proficient- The student at this level has developed the fundamental knowledge and skills and core understandings, and can transfer them independently through authentic performance tasks.
  • Advanced- The student at this level exceeds the core requirements in terms of knowledge, skills and understandings, and can transfer them automatically and flexibly through authentic performance tasks.

The National Assessment System of K to 12 Education Program

National assessment is a country-wide collection of information on what students know, understand, and perform. The result of national assessment can be used by individual students as a basis on where to proceed in the next step in the educational ladder or can be used by educators for making an informed decision about what to do next in the educational process. Before the implementation of the K to 12 education program, students took the National Achievement Test (NAT) which provided information to schools, divisions, regions, and the country as to the level of academic achievement of Filipino students in elementary (taken at Grade 6) and in high school (taken at Year 2) level. In the K to 12, national assessments will be conducted at the end of each level of schooling elementary, junior high school, and senior high school. Moreover, there will be summative assessment at the national level conducted at the end of Grade 3 to determine the impact of the use of mother tongue as medium of instruction. The assessment in Grade 12 is conceived to accomplish several purposes such as to assess the achievement of the K to 12 standards and to serve as college entrance examination.
