3. Wandering Down Memory Lane
What are your earliest, or most vivid,
memories of assessment?
In primary? In secondary? In tertiary?
Why are these experiences memorable?
What was pleasing or frustrating for you?
How have these experiences affected the
way you assess your learners now?
5. NCBTS Domain 5:
Planning, Assessing and Reporting
• Develops and utilizes creative and
appropriate instructional plan
• Develops and uses a variety of appropriate
assessment strategies to monitor and
• Monitors regularly and provides feedback on
learners' understanding of content
• Communicates promptly and clearly to
learners, parents and superiors about
progress of learners
• In pairs, brainstorm ideas that are
related to the word “assessment”.
• Then as a group, consolidate and
organize these ideas through a
• Lastly, write down your own
definition for “assessment”.
7. K to 12 Classroom Assessment
A joint process that involves both teachers & learners
An integral part of teaching and learning
Facilitates the development of learners’ higher-
order thinking and 21st-century skills
The “ongoing process of identifying, gathering,
organizing, and interpreting quantitative and
qualitative information about what learners know
and can do” (DO #8, s. 2015, p. 1)
the learners’ zone of proximal development (Vygotsky
11. Assessment Methods
• What are you assessing – knowledge, skills
• Which method would best allow your
learners to demonstrate what they have
• Which method would make it easy and
manageable for you to gather evidence of
your learners’ progress over time?
Information about how a person did in
relation to what he or she attempted
“The best feedback is highly specific,
directly revealing or highly descriptive
of what actually resulted, clear to the
performer, and available or offered in
terms of specific targets and
standards.” (Wiggins, 1998)
Compares work to anchor
papers and rubrics
“Very good!”, “Try harder!”,
Mere score on a paper
Compares work against
exemplars and criteria
Students given only directions

Use of descriptive language

the characteristics that lead to
such value judgments

constantly dependent on the
judge to know how they did
18. What is the Grading System?
Standard & competency-based grading system.
All grades will be based on weighted raw score of
the learners’ summative assessments.
The minimum grade is 60, which is transmuted to
75 in the report card.
The lowest mark on the report card is 60.
Learners from Grades 1 to 12 are graded on Written
Work, Performance Tasks, and Quarterly
Assessment every quarter.
DO #8, s.2015, p9
20. How is Attendance Reported?
learners must be in school every day
attendance shall be recorded by teacher
Learner who incurs absences of more than
20% of the prescribed number of class or
laboratory periods during the school year or
semester should be given a failing grade
and not earn credit for the learning area or
subject (DO #8, s.2015, p.23)
21. To whom classroom
to the Child
To Child’s remedial class teacher
Teacher of the next grade level
Child’s parents / guardians

40 Performance Indicators (from 183-222)
The use of assessment data to plan and revise instructional plans
Integration of assessment procedures in the plan and implementation of teaching-learning activities
Reporting of the learners’ actual achievement and behavior
Teachers provide appropriate assessment when they aim to holistically measure learners’ current & developing abilities while enabling them to take responsibility in the process.
This view recognizes the diversity of learners inside the classroom, the need for multiple ways of measuring their varying abilities and learning potentials, and the role of learners as co-participants in the assessment process.
……moving from guided to independent display of knowledge, understanding, and skills
between people (interpsychological) and then inside the child (intrapsychological)
A second aspect of Vygotsky's theory is the idea that the potential for cognitive development depends upon the "zone of proximal development" (ZPD): a level of development attained when children engage in social behavior. Full development of the ZPD depends upon full social interaction. The range of skill that can be developed with adult guidance or peer collaboration exceeds what can be attained alone.
