2.6 M to Take School Achievement Tests


Atencio, Joel C., Manila Bulletin


About 1.6 million sixth graders and one million senior high school students will take the National Elementary Achievement Test (NEAT) today, Jan. 18, and the National Secondary Achievement Test (NSAT) on Jan. 21 in public and private elementary and secondary schools nationwide.

This was announced yesterday by Education Undersecretary for Programs, Projects and Regional Operations Nilo L. Rosas.

The tests will be administered in 6,577 testing centers nationwide by the the Department of Education, Culture,and Sports-National Educational Testing and Research Center (DECS-NETRC) headed by officer-in-charge Nelia V. Benito.

Rosas said, however, that the tests will have no bearing on the grades of the students or their prospects for entry into the next stage of their education. They are used to determine which schools are competitive in their job of educating s4tudents.

"It will classify the best among sectarian and non-sectarian schools, state and regional schools, as well as urban and rural schools," Rosas said.

Benito said NEAT will have 50 items for each of the five subjects lasting for five hours for a total of 250 items with every subject matter taking 50 minutes.
