The Department of Education (DepEd) has released the interim guidelines on assessment and grading learners in light of the Basic Education Learning Continuity Plan for the academic year 2020 to 2021, which opens Monday, October 5.
DepEd posted the guidelines or Department Order 31, series of 2020, aims to provide teachers with guidance on assessing student learning and grading schemes to be adopted this school year.
The department said the assessment “should be holistic and authentic in capturing the attainment of the most essential learning competencies and is integral for understanding student learning and development.”
“A variety of assessment strategies is necessary, with formative assessment taking priority to inform teaching and promote growth and mastery. Assessment and feedback should be a shared responsibility among teachers, learners, and their families,” DepEd said.
It added the assessment and grading should have a positive impact on learning.
Under the guidelines, the DepEd presented the summative assessment components’ weight distribution per learning area for grades 1 to 10 and senior high school.
It also included a sample computation of written works and performance tasks for the different subjects—language, math, science, history, music, arts, physical education, and technical and livelihood education.
