Local and International Standardized Assessments

Standardized formative assessments are vital tools utilized by the school in line with its thrust to efficiently address individual learners’ needs and monitor their academic growth through time.

Aside from monitoring students’ growth and supporting academic instruction, the use of standardized assessments is also intended to:

  1. present alternative measures of students’ level of competence and skill in the tool subjects (English, Math, Filipino, Science) other than grades;
  2. provide relevant data, which may be used to evaluate existing academic programs and to help devise ways to strengthen them; and
  3. supply information to support decision-making regarding proposed interventions and innovations to be implemented by the department.
