Regional learning assessors train anew

Regional RAMSE team leader Maria Anna Zorilla presenting the result of last year's RAMSE.
Regional team and division coordinators of the Region-wide Assessment for Math, Science and English (RAMSE) converge in Davao City today, June 3, 2013, for a week-long training to deepen their analytical skills in data interpretation. Aside from RAMSE regional and division coordinators, other participants include those from the Regional Policy and Planning Division and BRAC Philippines.  

In hindsight, regional RAMSE team leader Maria Anna Zorilla said, RAMSE has been going on in the ARMM for the past six (6) years. A year ago, the RAMSE expanded its subject coverage to include Arabic, thus, it is now called RAMSEA. RAMSE started as a project-funded initiative and under the administration of Regional Governor Mujiv Hataman, is now run and funded entirely by DepEd-ARMM.

In his message, Assistant Secretary Noor Saada exhorts participants to take advantage of this training to deepen their analytical skills in order to make meaning about statistical data. He congratulates the RAMSE team for what is now six years of work and promise to mainstream RAMSE data in to inform policy decision and programming.

Education Supervisor Rosanna R. Mar from Tawi-Tawi, one of the participants, said, she looks forward to learning new analytical techniques to interpret RAMSE data to improve classroom instruction and supervision.

Dr Ken Vine, an education research specialist, will be the lead trainer for the duration of the training. He will train also participants use the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software.
