FINAL UPDATE ON G5 AND G6 CONCERN REGARDING COMPUTATION OF FINAL GRADES
(As of February 26, 2016)
According to the office Dr. Abe (Chief, EAD), the computation of General Average for Grade 5 and 6 will be in 5 learning areas (not eight). It is only the principle of grading system and assessment that will be implemented in grade 5 and 6 for the current SY.
For the guidelines in selecting of honors, in the absence of addendum to Deped order 74, 2012 - this current policy is still enforce.
The G5 and G6 Official ECR will also be posted in the DepEd Website following the principle of 5 learning areas only with Makabayan as the average of 4 other learning areas namely: MSEP, EPP, ESP and HEKASI.
Sa tulong po ng mga volunteer teachers/division personnel, ang central office po ay naglabas ng official electronic class record para libreng magamit ng mga teachers (Deped Memorandum 60, s. 2015). Ang official class record ay may mga pre-programmed formula in accordance with Deped Order 8, s. 2015.
Ang isa sa mga instructions po ay ang paggamit ng divisor (divided by 5 subejcts) para sa pag compute ng General Average ng Grade 5 and 6 for SY 2015-2016. Sa Deped Order 29, s. 2015, “grading system at assessment lang muna ang gagamitin at hindi ang set of 8-subject. Maingat pong sinunod ng ECR Team ang mga provinsions ng mga Deped Orders 8 at 29, s. 2015 at na review din po ito ng BEA-EAD Chief.
Kung para naman po sa ranking of honors, dahil daw wala pa pong revision/addendum ang Deped Order 74, s. 2012 - mananatili pong valid ang deped order na ito maliban na magkaroon ng bagong instruction - (BEA-EAD and PS).Maraming Salamat po!
