2016-2017 ALS A&E - Test will be in English & Filipino

I emailed the Education Assessment Division of the Department of Education (DepEd) regarding the conduct of the Accreditation & Equivalency test on 19 & 26 November 2017 and they told me that Learning Strand 1 - Communication Skills (English) and Learning Strand II - Problem-Solving and Critical Thinking will be written in English. All the other Learning Strands - III to V will be written in Filipino.

Below is the full text of the email:

"Aside from English communication skills, Numeracy and Scientific Thinking are written in the English language. Filipino and LS-III to V are written in Filipino."

These learning strands of ALS are:
  • I -Communication Skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing)
  • II - Problem-Solving and Critical Thinking (numeracy and scientific thinking)
  • III - Sustainable use of Resources/Productivity (ability to earn a living through self-employment, outside employment, entrepreneurship, sustainable use of resources and appropriate technology and productivity)
  • IV - Development of Self and a Sense of Community (self-development, a sense of personal and national history and identity, cultural pride and recognition and understanding of civil and political rights)
  • V - Expanding One’s World Vision (knowledge, respect and appreciation for diversity, peace and non-violent resolution of conflict, and global awareness and solidarity)
