Filipino subject top among grade 6, 10 Baguio learners
by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

The Department of Education Baguio Division has registered the highest ratings in the Cordillera in some aspects of the National Achievement Test.

DepEd Baguio City Schools Division superintendent Marie Carolyn Verano reported that the latest grade 6 and 10 NAT results show an improved ranking of DepEd Baguio from previous  years’ NAT results. 

NAT is one of the indicators on the quality of education including the Philippine Informal Reading Inventory (Phil-IRI), senior high school graduates, and the contextualized learning materials.

Verano said comparing the overall mean percentage scores across the eight divisions in the region, DepEd Baguio has the highest rating in grade 6 and 10 NAT with the Filipino subject having the highest rating while Math and Science subjects have the lowest ratings in both grade levels among five subjects tested.

In the Phil-IRI for 2018-2019, a reading assessment tool given to grade 3 to 7 learners to test their oral and silent reading skills in Filipino and English, there is a high percentage of readers from the frustration level that progressed to instructional level, generally, in all grade levels in Filipino.

“This means that many learners attained the highest reading level and have background knowledge of the topic. However, there are still 86 non-readers in grade 3 and 52 non-readers in grade 7 even after interventions were offered,” Verano said.

She said there is a high percentage of independent readers among grade 7 learners in English oral and silent reading skills where 116 or two percent are non-readers; 1,255 or 22 percent are in the frustration level; 2,439 or 43 percent are in the instructional; and 35 percent are in the independent level.

“The education of a child is everybody’s business, hence, no matter how many reading interventions are designed in school, this calls for stronger home and community support,” Verano said.

For school year 2019-2020, a total of 56,659 are enrolled in public schools, which represents a two percent decrease from the previous school year, and  35,246 enrolled in private schools, which is 31 percent lower than in the previous school year.
