Pilot testing

  1. 1. Pilot Testing, Monitoring and Evaluating the Implementation of the Curriculum Prepared By: Glydelle E. Cataluña BEED-SPED 4A
  2. 2. Pilot Testing  It is one of the common practices of curriculum makers to determine the strength and the weaknesses of a written or planned curriculum. It assures the teachers and the schools that the curriculum materials are ready to use.
  3. 3. The Basic Education Curriculum (BEC) is the original name of the curriculum to the whole nationwide system of education in 2002. But after one year it was renamed as Revitalized Basic Education Curriculum (RBEC) because there are some modifications, revisions, and enhancement from the original.
  4. 4. Therefore, the pilot test or try-out is a developmental process that gives the signal as to whether the particular curriculum can already be implemented with confidence.
  5. 5. Curriculum Monitoring Monitoring is important to: • Determine if the curriculum is still relevant and effective • Know if the curriculum is working or not;
  6. 6. • Provide decision on what aspects have to be retained, improved or modified; and • Provide decision that would even end or terminate the program.
  7. 7. Curriculum Evaluation Curriculum evaluation refers to a systematic process of judging the value, effectiveness and adequacy of a curriculum: its process, product and setting which will lead to informed decision.
  8. 8. In practice, there are two ways of curriculum evaluation 1. School-based evaluation 2. Accreditation
  9. 9. 1. School-based Evaluation Is an approach to curriculum evaluation which places the content, design, operation and maintenance of evaluation procedure in the hands of the school personnel.
  10. 10. For example, two teachers may wish to examine a science unit they are both teaching. They will undertake an evaluation in order to improve their individual teaching activities.
  11. 11. On the other hand, the whole school may undertake curriculum evaluation of the mathematics program across all levels in order to re-evaluate school policy and initiate re-development of the mathematics curriculum.
  12. 12. Some advantages of the School-Based Evaluation  Accountability is shared by all, hence bias and conflict are minimized.  School personnel develop evaluation skills.  The real concerns of the school and community are addressed by the evaluation.
  13. 13. Some advantages of the School-Based Evaluation  Broad participation of school personnel provide opportunities for building school cohesiveness.  Provides reliable and valid information on curriculum, resources, and general school functioning.
  14. 14. 2. Accreditation Is a voluntary process of submitting a curricular program to an external accrediting body for review in any level of education: basic, tertiary or graduate school to assure standard.
  15. 15. Accreditation is viewed as a process by which an institution at the tertiary level evaluates its educational activities, in whole or in part, and seeks an independent judgment to confirm that it substantially achieves its objectives, and is generally equal in quality to comparable institutions.
  16. 16. The actual accreditation survey visits are conducted by teams of accreditors usually composed of five (5) members per team per program staying in the host institution for a period of three (3) days.
  17. 17. Among the many purposes of accreditation are to foster excellence and improve programs. The curricular accreditation will assure the academic community, other agencies and the general public that curriculum meets standards comparable to other excellent institutions offering similar programs.
  18. 18. What are the areas of accreditation under Curriculum and Instruction? 1. Curriculum and Program Studies 2. Classroom Management 3. Instructional Processes or Methodologies 4. Graduation Requirements 5. Administrative Support for Effective Instruction 6. Evaluation of Academic Performance of Students
  19. 19. 1. Curriculum and Program of Studies Program of studies includes the clusters of knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and experiences that will provide the students at any level with the necessary competencies for effective learning.
  20. 20. For basic education, program of studies includes the subject areas in English, Mathematics, Science, Filipino and Makabayan. Any program of studies should meet the Department of Education requirements for basic education.
  21. 21. While the CHED mandates the program of studies for tertiary and advanced education. The course or degree programs are composed of general education subjects, professional education subjects and major subjects. They are also enriched by subjects called electives.
  22. 22. 2. Classroom Management The teacher who implements the curriculum sees to it that management of teaching and learning in the classroom follows procedure and guidance to enhance and create an environment conducive to learning.
  23. 23. An environment conducive to learning considers the physical factors such as classroom physical arrangements, ventilation, lighting, cleanliness; while the human factors include the teachers’ attitude, students’ responses, teacher-students relationships, student-student relationships and interaction.
  24. 24. 3. Instructional Processes or Methodologies The decision of choosing and using the method of teaching is a crucial factor in curriculum and instruction. There are varied methodologies that are compatible with the different learning style of the students.
  25. 25. 4. Graduation Requirements Graduation means successful accomplishment of the curricular program of studies. A student has to accomplish its academic program as prescribed in the program of studies.
  26. 26. 5. Administrative Support for Effective Instruction A curriculum can be best implemented if there is support of the school administration. Quality instruction should be sustained by requiring needed instructional materials, high quality examination questions and other support for effective instruction.
  27. 27. 6. Evaluation of Academic Performance of Students It is necessary that learning outcomes be evaluated. After all the best measure of a curriculum is the learning outcome of the students. The evaluation of students’ performance should make use of valid and reliable tools which are periodically reviewed and revised.
