Written works and performance tasks shall be administered to assess the content and performance
standards that describe the knowledge, abilities and skills that learners are expected to demonstrate.
These tasks could be designed to include the following:
a. Student’s Learning Portfolio that documents all the evidence of learning within the grading period
including self-reections, self-evaluations of performance tasks guided by rubrics, and self-selected
best outputs in learning modules.
b. Minimum of four (4) written works and four (4) performance tasks within the quarter, preferably one
in two weeks integrating two or more competencies.
c. All competencies should be covered by the performance tasks (e.g. A performance task can be used
to assess Science, Math, and English altogether for certain topics).
For the current school year, quarterly assessments shall not be administered. However, days allotted
for quarterly assessments in DepEd Order 7, s. 2020 or the School Calendar and Activities for School
Year 2020-2021, may be used for the presentation of major performance for the quarter that addresses
the performance standard.
Quarterly Examinations were given a weight of 20% constantly in DO No. 8, s. 2015. Since it will no
longer be a part of the grading system for this school year, its previously determined weight was
distributed equally into Written Works and Performance Tasks, allotting an additional 10% to each
component. This maintains an emphasis on Performance Tasks for some learning areas.
To help you in recording your learners’ performance and written outputs, here are the modified E-Class Record based on DepEd Order No. 031, s. 2020. Please take note that it is the teacher’s
responsibility to double-check whether the weight for each component is aligned with the
aforementioned DepEd Order.
