La Salle College Antipolo utilizes APSA's Standards-Based Assessment
Last September 7, 8, and 9, La Salle College Antipolo (LSCA) was able to successfully conduct their pretest for 2021 to measure their current student performance using the Standards-Based Assessment, in partnership with the Asian Psychological Services and Assessment, Inc. (APSA).
Aligned with LSCA's mission that is to nurture globally-competitive students and exemplary, compassionate servant leaders, the school has partnered up with APSA in assessing student competency through the SBA since last August 2020. The SBA is the latest assessment technology that measures students’ proficiency level against the national and global standards. Results of the assessment help schools identify where students are in terms of mastery of the skills and competencies required for their level. Students’ areas of strengths and areas for improvements are also identified which consequently can provide information to help schools improve the quality of their curriculum and instruction.
This academic year, the online SBA was successfully administered to students of Grades 1 to 9, taking the core subjects of English, Math, and Science. Grade 10 students were able to take the Assessment for Senior High School Potential (ASHSP) which measures their competencies to handle senior high school level work. On the other hand, Grade 11 students took the College Readiness Test (CRT) which measures their potential and readiness to handle college level work, as well as their capability to finish collegiate schooling in time.
The whole testing activity was accomplished through the collaborative efforts of the LSCA admin, guidance office and teachers, and with the support and cooperation of parents and students. Students of LSCA were able to take their SBA in the comfort and safety of their homes.
