  1. The Department of Education (DepEd) issues the enclosed Policy Guidelines on System Assessment in the K to 12 Basic Education Program to:
    1. articulate the bases, indicators, and measures of system performance that will provide insights on the effectiveness of curriculum and instruction program delivery;
    2. provide the bases for the implementation of national and international large-scale assessments of student learning outcomes in determining the national education system’s effectiveness and efficiency;
    3. provide an overview of the national and international large-scale assessments per key stage; and
    4. discuss the purposes and scope, frequency of administration, target group of learners, and schedule of various assessments.
  1.  Included in this policy is the schedule of assessments until 2023–2024, at the end of which the first cohort of learners would have completed the full K to 12 Basic Education Program.
  1. These guidelines will remain in force and in effect for the duration of the program, unless sooner repealed, amended, or rescinded. All existing Orders and Memoranda that are inconsistent with this Order are rescinded.
  1. Immediate dissemination of and strict compliance with this Order is directed.
