K-12 learners in CL public schools undergo assessment
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO K to 12 learners in all public schools across Central Luzon underwent the Regional Mid-Year Assessment (RMYA) from March 13 to 17 to determine the percentage of students who achieved the minimum level of proficiency in various grade levels, learning areas and Senior High School (SHS) core subjects.
The Department of Education (DepEd), which conducted the RMYA, said it covered Kindergarten, all learning areas from Grades 1 to 10, and core subjects in SHS to allow teachers to continuously track and measure learners’ cognitive, affective, and psychomotor development to achieve the desired learned competencies articulated in the K to 12 curriculum.
DepEd Central Luzon Director May Eclar said the RMYA is contained in DepEd Order No. 8, series of 2015, making classroom assessment an integral part of curriculum implementation.
“The conduct of the RMYA is one of the priority strategies included in the Regional Learning Recovery Plan to strengthen large-scale, classroom assessment practices (formative and summative) and work-based assessment of practical skills to identify learning gaps,” she said.
She furthered that through RMYA, the DepEd will determine the most learned and least learned competencies as well as the extent of the cognitive levels of students, utilize the results and findings as baseline data to improve the teaching skills of teachers through Learning Action Cell sessions, and develop a school intervention/remediation plan for the identified learning gaps in the different learning areas and grade levels headed by the school head with the assistance of master teachers.
RMYA is a clear commitment of DepEd Central Luzon to the "Matatag" agenda initiated by Vice President and Education Secretary Sara Duterte. It aims to make the curriculum relevant to produce competent, job-ready, active, and responsible citizens.
