FS THE K to 12 GRADING SYSTEM

Episode 8

My FS Learning Episode Overview

With the implementation of the Enhanced Basic Education Curriculum of 2013,


more popularly known as K to 12, is a new grading system that is aligned to the new
assessment policy of the Department of Education based on DepEd Memo 8, s. 2015 In
this Episode, you will be made to observe how this is implemented in schools.
My Intended Learning Outcomes

At the end of this Episode, I will able to:


compute students grade based on DepEds grading policy
give the descriptor of a numerical grade
My Performance Criteria

I will be rated along the following


quality of my observations and documentation,
completeness and depth of my analysis
depth and clarity of my classroom observation-based reflections,
completeness, organization, clarity of my portfolio and
time of submission of my portfolio.

My Learning Essentials
In the K to 12 curriculum, a students grade is based on his/her written work,
performance task and quarterly assessment.
The weights of the components (written work, performance task and quarterly
assessment) vary among groups of subjects from grade 1 to Grade 10 and from Grade 11 and 12
See Tables below:
Weight of the Components for Grades 1-10

Assessment

Components of Summative Assessment


A. Written Work includes long quizzes and unit or long tests. Other written work may include
essays, written reports, and other written output It is strongly recommended that items in long
quizzes and tests be distributed across the cognitive process dimensions of Anderom and
Krathwohl (2001) DepEd Order 8, s. 2015.
The written Work component ensures that students are able to express skills and
concepts in written form
If you are looking for the application KPUP (knowledge, process, understanding and
performance of DepO. 73, s. 2012) This is it. In assessment, teacher sees to it that written tests
assess the cognitive processes of remembering, understanding, applying, analysing, evaluating
and creating with emphasis on the higher dimensions.
B. The Performance Task components allows learners to show what they know and are able to
do in diverse ways. They may create or innovate products or do performance-based tasks.
Performance-based tasks may include skills demonstration, group presentations, and work,
multimedia presentations, and work, multimedia presentations and research projects. (DepEd,
Order 8, s. 2015). It also includes written outputs.
C. Quarterly Assessment measures student learning at the end of the quarter. Thesemay be
objectives tests, performance-based assessment or a combination of both. (DepEd Order 8,
s.2015)

Reporting Learners Program


DepEd Order 8, s. 2015 states:
The summary of learner progress is shown quarterly to parents and guardians through
parent-teacher conference, in which the report card is discussed. The table below presents the
grading scale with its corresponding descriptors and remarks.
Grading Scale
DESCRIPTOR GRADING SCALE REMARKS
Outstanding 90-100 Passed
Very Satisfactory 85-89 Passed
Satisfactory 80-84 Passed
Fairly Satisfactory 75-79 Passed
Did Not Meet Expectations Below 79 Passed

My Learning Activities

Activity 1: Interview of Resource Teacher

Interview Guide Questions for Resource Teacher

Based on DepEd Order 8, s. 2015:

1. What are the bases for grading?

2. How do you compute grades per quarter for Grades 1 to


10 and Grades 11 to 12. Give an example.
3. How do you compute grades at the end of the school
year?
4. What descriptors and grading scale are used in reporting
progress of learners?
5. What are the bases for leaners promotion and retention
at the end of the school year?
6. What is the report on learners observed values?

Activity 2: Interview of 5 Students

Interview Guide Questions for 5 Students


1. What do you like in the new grading system?

2. Do you have problems with the new grading system. If there is,
what?
3. Does the new grading system give you a better picture of
your performance? Why or why not?

Activity 3: Grade Computation

Show sample computations of a grade in a subject of your choice either from Grade 1 to
10 or from Grades 11 to 12. Show the percentage contributions of written work, performance
tasks and quarterly assessment. Then give the descriptor. (Ask you Resource Teacher for his/her
help).

Subject: Grade:

Steps

1. Get the total score for each component.

Learners Raw Score Highest Possible Score


Written Work 1
2
3
4
5
Learners Raw Score Highest Possible Score
Performance Task 1
2
3
4
Quarterly Assessment (Test) Learners Raw Score Highest Possible Score

2. Obtain the Percentage Score for each of the component by dividing the total raw score by the
highest possible score then multiply the quotient by 100%.
Percentage Score of Written Work ____

Percentage Score of Performance Task ____

Percentage Score of Quarterly Assessment ____


3. Convert Percentage Score to weighted scores by multiplying the percentage score by the
weight of the component. Refer to Tables on weights of Components per subject for Grades 1 to
10 and for Grades 11 to 12 on pp. 91-92.
The Weighted Score of Written Work ____

The Weighted Score of Performance Task ____

The Weighted Score of Quarterly Assessment ____

4. Add the weighted Scores of each component. This will give you the initial grade.

5. Transmute the Initial Grade using the Transmutation Table in Appendix G.

6. Give the descriptor of the computed final grade of the subject. Refer to Table of Descriptors on
p. 92.
My Analysis

Analyze data and information gathered from the interview.

1. Do teachers/students like the new grading system? Why or Why not?

2. What are the good points of the new grading system?

3. What are teachers challenged to do by this new grading system?

4. Do you favour the distribution of percentages of written work, performance tasks and
quarterly assessment?

5. Do Andersons and Krathwohls cognitive process dimensions include Kendalls and


Marzanos (retrieval, understanding, analysis and knowledge utilization)?

6. Did you like the experience of computing grades? Why or why not?
My Reflections

In an era where the emphasis is self-directed learning, demonstration of knowledge, skills


and values learned (outcomes-based education) do grades really matter?

What are your thoughts about the reflection of core values of the Filipino child in the
Report Card?
