NATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT TEST OF CAIMA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

I.

PROPONENT:

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY:


The National Achievement Test (NAT) is an examination given annually to

assess the competency of both public and private school students. The students
knowledge and skills are tested in the subjects of Mathematics, English, Science,
Filipino, and HEKASI for grade school. The test is administered by the Department of
Education's National Education Testing and Research Center (NETRC). The results
are intended to guide the Department of Education in its efforts towards the
improvement of the quality of education in public schools and to provide
appropriate intervention for the students. A score of 75% and up indicates mastery
of the subject and 50% to less than 75%, near mastery; while a score of below 50%
indicates low mastery.
The NAT results guide decision makers in formulating policies relative to
progression and promotion of students, especially in the public school system.
These will also determine the deficiencies of students that need further
intervention.

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

Findings of this study provided vital information regarding the factors affecting the
pupils performance in the National Achievement Test (NAT) in terms of students
profile and school climate condition.
The findings of this study will benefit the following:
Superintendent. It may help the superintendent to identify the needs of the
school and to plan for the support system that the school leaders need to prioritize
when it comes to students performance.
Principal. The result of this study may also serve as framework for various
programs and strategies to be employed on the school improvement planning.
School climate condition assessment may use as data inputs on the reality check
matters of school academic performance. Thus, appropriate programs and thrusts
may be formulated and provided with appropriate budget for the improvement of
the students performance. It is also possible to have a rigid monitoring of monthly
result of students mean percentage score (MPS) in their chapter test to be posted
using graphical representation to easily identify the competencies that needs
enough attention in classroom instruction. With the help of graphs, the principal can
help and assist teachers in uplifting the performance of the students.
Teachers. The result of this finding is of value to teachers because it will
provide an overview of the needs analysis of the school. They may be guided from
the level of assistance the school and the principal may need and may help them to
work cooperatively in order for them to attain success in the national achievement
test. By means of carefully recorded grades of the student, the teacher and

principal can work collaboratively to identify the competencies the students had
mastered, not mastered and needs mastery. With this, teachers can be guided to
the lesson that he needs to give more emphasis for students.
Pupils. The improvement of school climate condition will be beneficial for the
pupils. A favorable school climate condition may serve as pupils motivation in
improving their academic performance. The motivating factors that will start from
the initiative of the school principal may help the pupils to be more enthusiastic in
learning process.
Future researchers. This study will help to encourage future researchers to
conduct the most vital part of the school progress in terms of academic. The study
may propel them to go into related area or they may study further school academic
achievement for other perspective. This may also provide data bases for further
innovation of this research study.
