ILOILO CITY, June 17 (PNA) -– Teachers in public elementary and high schools will use electronic class record template for the records of students.

According to Dr. Leo Dedoroy, chief of Policy, Planning, and Research Division (PPRD) of the Department of Education (DepEd) VI, the electronic class record was made by some teachers in Region VI which they presented to the Central Office and was validated.

Last June 15, DepEd passed the memorandum order number 8, series of 2015, in which DepEd provides an Electronic class record template free for use of public school teachers beginning school year 2015 to 2016.

“Through the use of the electronic class record, teachers could put the records of their students and automatically compute their grades faster than using the manual record book”, Dedoroy said.

Dedoroy also said that the electronic class record will be used from Grades 1 to 10. A memorandum from the central office ordering the teachers to use electronic class record for Grades 11 and 12 will also be available when the students will already be in senior high school next year.

“There will be another electronic class record intended for the records of students in Grades 11 and 12 because they have different grading system”, Dedoroy added.

To ensure sustainability and to minimize technical difficulty, the electronic class record was made by DepEd as part of the policy guidelines on classroom assessment for the K to 12 Basic Education Program.

DepEd is encouraging the division information technology officer or designated information communication technology coordinator to conduct an orientation for school personnel and extend technical assistance to promote the use of the electronic class record.

The electronic class record template is downloadable in the DepEd official website for the utilization of elementary and high school teachers.
