INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE-WORKSHOP
FOR TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS ON
“Stratagems and Modalities of Learning Outcomes Assessment across Disciplines”

  1. RATIONALE

 As the Philippine education system gears up full implementation of the K to 12 Basic Education Program, this conference-workshop is proposed for teachers and administrators across disciplines to significantly improve student learning with the enhanced K to 12 curriculum. Students take their cue about what they are expected to learn from the techniques of assessment and evaluation that is administered to them. Accordingly, assessment and evaluation techniques should bring about student outcomes like development of higher order thinking skills (HOTS), creativity, problem solving abilities, collaborative learning and hands on assessment learning outcomes.

This conference-workshop will help the teachers and administrators acquire skills and knowledge in developing outcome-based learning tasks that measure the student’s self-monitored understanding of various contents in different subject areas or disciplines. In addition, this conference-workshop will help participants identify the most important skills and processes to evaluate learning and teaching and implement the most appropriate forms of assessment in their fields of specialization. This activity will also be a venue for the participants to engage in discussion with the speakers and presenters on their research results on learning assessment and evaluation. There will also be an opportunity to construct content- and performance-based assessment materials for the participants to bring back to their classes.

  1. OBJECTIVES

 The conference-workshop aims to:

  1. present the global perspectives and best practices in assessment and evaluation of learning outcomes;
  2. identify relevant and appropriate assessment modalities to measure learning outcomes in K to 12 various subject areas;
  3. introduce the use of digital technique in assessment and evaluation for K to 12 student learning;
  4. define constructed-response assessment evaluation for learning outcomes in K to 12; and
  5. demonstrate ability to construct valid, reliable, and measurable test items.

 EXPECTED OUTPUT

 The main output of the conference-workshop is the development a doable action plan and sample test items on the learner outcome with the end in view of improving relevant assessment and evaluation integral to the implementation of the K to 12 Program.

  1. DATE AND VENUE

 The conference will be held from October 27-29, 2016 at the Tagaytay Country Hotel, Olivarez Plaza, E. Aguinaldo Hi-way Tagaytay City, Philippines.
