The Montessori De Sagrada Familia has partnered with the Global Resource Assessment for Curriculum and Evaluation (GRACE) to further improve its curriculum and instruction amidst the pandemic. GRACE is a research organization that caters to private educational institutions in the Philippines. They provide various learning assessment tools that will gauge students’ learning proficiency and skills.
On September 3, 2021, Sagradans belonging to the grade 1-10 levels are scheduled to take the Performance Assessment of Standards and Skills (PASS) developed by GRACE which covers the following subject areas: Mathematics, English and Science. The said test consists of items derived from the Most Essential Learning Competencies (MELCS, 2020) prescribed by the Department of Education.
The results of the said test will not reflect the students’ grades for the quarter. However, the collected data will be used by the members of the academic council and the subject area teachers in improving their weekly learning plans, learning resources, teaching strategies and assessment tools in order to address the learning needs of the students.
