The Department of Education (DepEd) has issued the guidelines in assessing the year-end school readiness of kindergarten to check on their pre-schooling progress with the end view of providing them with specific learning intervention.
To assess the performance level of all kindergarten pupils, DepEd came up with School Readiness Year-end Assessment (SReYA). The pupils will be assessed across the different developmental domains that include physical health and well-being, motor development, mathematics, language and literacy, sensory perceptual, physical and social environment, character and values development and socioemotional development.
The result of the assessment will be a critical input for the Grade 1 teachers because they will be provided with children’s readiness profile which is crucial in addressing the pupils’ specific learning needs. On the other hand, the kindergarten teachers will have a basis to improve their instructional skills.
The SReYA will be conducted using the pupils’ mother tongue or the language spoken at home by the children.
Secretary of Education Armin B. Luistro emphasized that ‘the SReYA is not an entrance exam for the next grade level, thus, no child shall be refused entry to Grade 1 based on the result of the assessment.’
SReYA shall be administered at the end of each school year in every school. (deped.gov.ph)
