It’s a good start for the school teachers to be familiarized with the 2019 guidelines on promoting and retaining the learners as the school year has just started. 

On the Grading System, the K-12 Basic Education Program (BEP) uses a standards-based and competency-based grading system. All grades will be based on the weighted score of the learner’s summative assessments. The minimum grade to pass a specific learning area is 60, which transmuted to 75 in the Report Card.

The lowest mark that can appear on the Report Card is 60 for Quarterly Grades and Final Grades. Learners from Grades 1 to 12 are graded on Written Work (WW), Performance Tasks(PT), and Quarterly Assessment (QA) every quarter. These three are given specific percentage weights that vary according to the nature of the learning area.

Grading System How is learner progress recorded and computed? The following shows the step-by-step way of computing the grades.

  • Outstanding 90 – 100 Passed
  • Very Satisfactory 85 – 89 Passed
  • Satisfactory 80 – 84 Passed
  • Fairly Satisfactory 75 – 79 Passed
  • Did not meet expectations Below 75 Failed
