A total of 217 teachers from universities and colleges in Region III attended the College of Education 5-day Seminar-Workshop on Alternative Assessment of Student Learning on October 7-9 and November 11-15, 2013.

       Assessment of Student Learning is a professional subject included in the New Teacher Education Curricula. 

      “Teachers under the old teacher education curriculum did not have the formal training of the said subject, which leads us into conducting the workshop,” said Dr. Elmer Dela Rosa, facilitator of the said training. 

      The seminar-workshop covers components of alternative classroom assessment, using multiple choice test and binary choice items to assess reasoning skills, performance-based and portfolio assessment. 

        The training was held twice, the first batch were from teacher education institutions in Region III, namely Bulacan State University, Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology, Tarlac State University, Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University, Bataan Peninsula State University, Ramon Magsaysay Technological University, Tarlac College of Agriculture, Bulacan Agricultural State College, Aurora State College of Technology and Pampanga Agricultural College; and, the second batch were Department of Education teachers of Nueva Ecija.

      Funded by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), the attendees had free accommodation and workshop materials. 

      The College of Education invited discussants, namely Dr. Jerome Ouano and Dr. John Addy Garcia from De La Salle University, and Dr. Soledad Roguel, Dr. Elmer Dela Rosa, Dr. Jenifer Velasquez and Ms. Lalaine Ann Fuentes, CED teachers. 

     This training was a response to the provisions of CHED Memorandum Order (CMO) no. 30, series of 2004, also known as the Revised Policies and Standards for Undergraduate Teacher Education Curricula, stating that “all efforts to improve the quality of education in the Philippines are dependent on the service of teachers who are properly prepared to undertake the various important roles and functions of teachers.” (Krizza S.
