School Year 2013-2014 has closed last March 31, 2014. By this time, after thorough checking of all school forms, Report Cards are ready to be released to students.
Report card reflects student’s academic performance. Under the K to 12 Curriculum the traditional numerical rating is replaced by letters. These letters represent the Levels of Proficiency abbreviated as B for Beginning, D for Developing, AP for Approaching Proficiency , P for Proficient and A for Advanced. But what do these letters really mean?
DepEd Order No. 73, s2012 describes these levels of proficiency as follows:
• Beginning (B) – The student at this level struggles at his/her understanding; prerequisite and fundamental knowledge and/or skills have not been acquired or developed adequately to aid understanding.
• Developing (D) – The student at this level possesses the minimum knowledge and skills and core understandings, but needs help throughout the performance of authentic tasks.
• Approaching Proficiency (AP) – The student at this level has developed the fundamental knowledge and skills and core understandings and with little guidance from the teacher and/or with some assistance from peers, can transfer these understandings through authentic performance tasks.
• Proficient (P) – The student at this level has developed the fundamental knowledge and skills and core understanding and can transfer them independently through authentic performance tasks.
• Advanced (A) – The student at this level exceeds the core requirements in terms of knowledge, skills and understanding, and can transfer them automatically and flexibly through authentic performance task.
The numerical equivalent of the 5 levels of proficiency are 74% and below for B, 75%-79% for D, 80%-84% for AP, 85%-89% for P and 90% and above for A. Thus, A is the highest and B is the lowest.
According to DepEd ASEC Umali, the shift from numerical to descriptive rating is to give more focus on achieving standards of learning rather than competition among learners.
The Final Grade of the student in each subject is computed as the average grade of the four grading periods. A student with a Final Grade of B will be required to take summer class. Taking summer class will make your child regular student next school year.
The K to 12 Curriculum uses the spiral progression approach in teaching. The level of complexity of subjects increases from one grade level to the next. Thus, for students to be ready for the next grade, they must have at least acquired the basic concepts of the current grade. In other words, the subjects in the current grade level are prerequisite to the subjects in the next grade level.
