PGMA expresses elation over performance of Grade 6 pupils in Nat'l Achievement Test

Manila (4 September) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo expressed elation today over the outstanding performance of Grade 6 pupils in the National Achievement Test (NAT) conducted nationwide last March.

The NAT results showed that the 1.6 million Grade 6 pupils from about 30,000 public elementary schools obtained a mean percentage score (MPS) of 59.94 percent, or 5.28 percent higher than the 2 percent increase envisioned by the Bureau of Elementary Education (BEE) of the Department of Education (DepEd).

Visibly pleased, the President congratulated DepEd for the fete, especially the children's impressive showing in mathematics, science and English.

Education Secretary Jesli Lapus announced the good news of the Grade 6 pupils' performance in the NAT during the round table discussions with the math and science student champions this afternoon at Malacanang's Heroes Hall.

In his power point presentation, Lapus informed the President that based on the test results, the test-takers notched a 12.36 percent improvement in math, 10.28 percent in science, and 12.45 percent in English subjects compared to last year's MPS.

He described the 2007 NAT result as a breakthrough in DepEd's campaign to improve and deliver the quality of education in public schools.

"This is way, way above our expectations and target. Kaya ito pong 1.6 million (students) na pumasok ngayon sa high school ay puwede nating batiin. Sa pangkalahatan ay 12 percent ang improvement sa three subjects na tinututukan talaga, iyong math, science, and English," Lapus told the President. (OPS) [top]
