PASIG CITY, February 12, 2019 – An estimated 1.4 million Grade 12 learners in all public and private schools nationwide are set to take the Basic Education Exit Assessment (BEEA) for School Year 2018-2019 on February 13 and 14.
To be administered by the Department of Education (DepEd), through the Bureau of Education Assessment (BEA) and with the assistance of schools divisions and secondary schools personnel, BEEA shall cover the 21st century learning skills and the core Senior High School (SHS) learning areas of Languages, Humanities, Communication, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, and Philosophy.
Specifically, the BEEA will enable the Department to: determine if the learners are meeting the learning standards; help provide information to improve instructional practices; assess/evaluate effectiveness and efficiency of education service delivery using learning outcomes as indicators; and provide empirical information as bases for curriculum, learning delivery assessment and policy reviews, and policy formulation.
