The enrolment data should be based on July 30, 2011 and beyond as bases;3. Use the Prescribed Standard Format in Excel. Enrolment data in other format (Word, PDF, JPEG file) will be returned to the DTC;4. Consider only the total enrolment per school. Don’t provide sub-totals for each program in a certain school and NO gender segregation;5. Group schools by municipality and not in alphabetical order as to listing of schools;6. Legislative district is considered and not school district;7. Lone congressional district is the only one in the province, while first district is a part of a large province having more than one constituency;8. Private schools are not included in Grade 3 NAT except for the Private MADARIS elementary schools;9. Enrolment data must be in 2 CD’s one for the elementary level Grades 3 and 6 and another one for Year 4 of secondary level.

The issued temporary school ID’s by NETRC will be used permanent for future test administration until such time when DepED issues another one;4. In case the school ID’s differ from the School Header follow the one indicated in the School Header; and5. Check the correctness of School ID’s used in the received Test Materials. 49
