The conduct of the Language Assessment for Primary Grades (LAPG) and the National Achievement Test for Grade Six (NAT G6) this school year 2015 - 2016 is scheduled on March 8 and March 10 respectively, according to DepEd Memorandum No. 1, s. 2016.

However, this had been superseded by a latest memo issued by Usec Dina S. Ocampo for their postponement.

Ocampo relayed the clarification as to the reason why these testings would be conducted on the later dates.

In an educative gathering of teachers in Cebu City, she announced that LAPG 3 and NAT G6 is postponed due to failure in the bidding process.

There is a video coverage to this effect posted in the social media by one of the teachers concerned.

The Bureau of Educational Assessment (BEA) which is the former National Education Testing and Research Center (NETRC) shall the administer those testings.

In LAPG 3 in particular, this assessment is intended to accomplish the following task:
  1. To evaluate the effectiveness of Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education instruction across 19 languages, 
  2. To establish Mother Tongue Language development across the Philippine languages in the context of th MTB-MLE Program implementation, 
  3. To compare the performance of Grade Three learners on English and Filipino essential skills, and 
  4. To correlate language development across Early Grades Reading Assessment (EGRA), Early Grades Mathematics Assessment (EGMA) and language literacy assessment in the primary grades.

Under Secretary for curriculum, Dina S. Ocampo issued a memorandum to this effect for the postponement of LAPG 3 and NAT G6 to all Regional Directors, Schools Division Superintendents, Division Testing Coordinators, Public and Private Elementary and Secondary School Heads.

The memorandum was dated February 1, 2016. Eventually, it was circulated and published in the Facebook before it was officially announced in the DepEd Website.

Testing Schedule

June 15, 2016 - Language Assessment for Primary Grades (LAPG) for Grade 3. It is to be administered to all Grade 4 pupils in all public elementary schools.

June 17, 2016 - National Achievement Test (NAT) for Grade 6. It is to be administered to all Grade 7 students in all public and private secondary schools.

This has made clear and has resolved the doubt and apprehensions of those public school teachers concerned.

  1. I remember taking NAT when I was in grade 6 but I can't remember if i took that Language Assessment for Primary Grades.. ito po ba yung pinapabasa sa tabi ng Principal??

  2. This would really be a great way to assess the program. Good luck to those taking the exam.

  3. well evaluating the effectiveness of the mother tongue in teaching is very important, teachers should know whats best to get across

  4. Thanks a lot for providing individuals with an extraordinarily terrific possibility to read articles and blog posts from here. It is always very terrific and also full of fun for me and my office fellow workers to visit the blog on the least three times per week to find out the new guides you have got. And definitely, I’m certainly satisfied considering the astounding things you give. Some 3 areas on this page are in truth the simplest we have ever had

  5. Me too remember taking NAT but it's my first time to hear LAPG. Iba na talaga ngayon. Well, i hope this will make our future generations more competitive.
