Students in Metro Manila and other localities with class suspensions on March 16 to 20 will no longer take their fourth quarter examinations, the Department of Education said.
Instead, schools are directed to apply a “grading formula” for the computation of their final grades for the last quarter of the school year, DepEd said in a memorandum released Monday.
The Education department said schools will still follow the Policy Guidelines on Classroom Assessment for the K to 12 Basic Education Program for Fourth Quarter grade. The grading formula will be based on class standing composed of written works and performance tasks.
The DepEd also reiterated that the week of April 13 to 17 is designated for moving up, graduation or recognition rites. Social distancing will be observed in the school events. The schools may also opt to reschedule or forego holding of the rites “should the public health situation prevent” it.
