Background


The Philippines is facing a rapidly changing education system and associated changes in assessment and curriculum systems at national, regional and local levels. Following a major curriculum comparison study completed under the auspices of Australian Aid by the Assessment Research Centre (Care & Griffin) in 2011, the Assessment, Curriculum and Technology Research Centre was established in 2013.


Objectives​

The Centre advises and informs the Philippine system of education through curriculum, teaching, and assessment research based on empirical data on curriculum innovation and implementation. The Centre plays a pro-active role in identifying trends and pressures on assessment and curriculum and the roles of technology in an educational context.
