QAAD conducts its last Capability Building Program Regional Training Program on School Monitoring, Evaluation and Adjustment (SMEA) System for the Division Core of Trainers is the QAAD’s fifth and last capability building program provided for the field personnel of this Calendar Year 2013.

In order to realize QAAD’s Work Plan in implementing School Monitoring, Evaluation and Adjustment System to schools divisions, a training program on SMEA System was organized with the support of SEMIT project and spearheaded by the Quality Assurance and Accountability Division (QAAD) led by the Chief of QAAD, Dr. Marcial P.

Bacaltos and Mrs. Merden L. Bryant. Based on the School Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) System Handbook, five (5) purposes of M&E for the schools are as follows: provides the school management and stakeholders information on the implementation of the curricular programs, activities and projects as basis for continuously improving their relevance, efficiency and effectiveness; provides information for school management to determine and adjust approaches and strategies that will ensure adequacy, equitable distribution, accessibility, and effective and optimal use of the resources of the school; establishes information as basis for determining appropriate approaches and strategies to improve teaching-learning competencies of teachers to ensure efficient and effective delivery of instruction, classroom management, and their personal growth and professional development; present information regarding learners’ performance to the school management that will support decisions and adjustments to plans and strategies to improve the learners’ academic achievement, school attendance, and participation in co-curricular activities; and provides information for school management to review and sustain the strategies that can improve the school’s health and performance through efficient school-based management, productivity of the teaching and non-teaching staff and strengthening partnership with the community. In its entirety, Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) to schools provides objective information essential for planning and decision-making in order to continuously improve the delivery of school services for basic education and the school’s performance and health to achieve the desired education outcomes; and provide valid, reliable and accurate data in decision-making to come up with possible actions and interventions to achieve the desired education outcomes.
