While students are back in school and the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect learning, the stakes are high in assessing student learning outcomes as well as measuring learning losses due to the pandemic. St. Edward School’s thrust as we have resumed our face-to-face classes is to ascertain that learning happens as well as to address these learning gaps.
In partnership with the Asian Psychological Services and Assessment, Inc. (APSA), pupils from Grade School to Junior High School students took the Standards-Based Assessment (SBA) that will identify what students should know or what students should be able to do at a certain grade level in various core subjects.
The SBA will pinpoint students’ learned competencies and identify learning gaps that will give the school and parents bases for learning reinforcement, areas of strengths and improvement of the school’s curriculum.
SBA will also provide an objective and relevant feedback to the school in terms of its quality and effectiveness of instruction against national norms and international standards.
