benchmark with international standards:
assess your k+12 curriculum using apsa’s standards‑based assessment
The Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013 stating that “the State shall create a functional basic education system that will develop productive and responsible citizens equipped with the essential
competencies, skills and values for both life-long learning and employment” strenghtens the Department of Education’s serious resolve to improve the quality of basic education in our country.
The Asian Psychological Services and Assessment, a leading organization in test development in the country is one with DepEd’s mission in giving students equal opportunity to receive quality
education that is at par with international standards and in providing students better career opportunities and preparation for college education in a globally competitive world.
In 2003, APSA introduced the latest approach in evaluating student achievement, the Standards-Based Assessment. APSA’s Standards-Based Assessment addresses the needs of schools for quality
assessment that will identify what students should know or what students should be able to do at a certain grade level in various subject areas. Many schools have adopted to the
standards-based assessment and have shown that indeed, the standards-based approach has given them the opportunities to raise the quality of their education.
