For Grades 5 and 6 advisers, the selection of honor pupils is getting REALLY CONFUSING. Yes, it is. At least for the last couple of days when teachers started to ask:
- What grading system should we use?
- Should we divide the grades by eight or by five learning areas?
- Should we use a final average with decimal point or not? If yes, how many decimal points should we use?
- What DepEd Order should we follow?
Today, we will show you our own computation.
- This computation was based on our division’s guidelines.
- This is for Grades 5 and 6 honor pupils
- We have divided the Final Rating (Gen. Ave.) by 5 learning areas (English, Filipino, Math, Science, MAKABAYAN)
- For the Final Grade per learning area we used two (2) decimal places and for the General Average, we used three (3) decimal places
- Your computation might be different from what we used here depending on the order from your division office
- We based our computation on DepEd Order No. 92, s.2009
- For Grades 1-4, you may refer to DepEd Order No.74, s.2012 for the selection of your honor pupils.
DepEd Order No. 74, s.2012 Section 11 (Please see the image below)
- The Grade 2 (Batch 2012-2013) are now the Grade 5 (Batch 2015-2016), and
- The Grade 3 (Batch 2012-2013) are now the Grade 6 (Batch 2015-2016)
SAMPLE FORM 138 FOR GRADES 5 AND 6
Above, you’ll notice that we have used two (2) decimal places for the Final Grade for each learning area. You can actually use UP TO THREE DECIMAL places. Usually, its purpose is to break the tie between your honor pupils if there’s any occurrence of such.
