Quipper, DepEd collaboration to boost K-12 programs

Quipper is an e-learning service provider that is working hand-in-hand with the Department of Education (DepEd) to innovate schools, and improve education for teachers and students in the transition to K-12 programs.

This move is also made to ensure that Filipino students would be able to keep up in global standards, reinventing and improving curriculum and a more integrated learning experiences to prepare students for the future.

The company will soon introduce online video lessons and assessments through Quipper Video that facilitates learning virtually anytime and anywhere. With content for grades 10 and 11, the service aims to get students ready for senior high school, which is set for implementation next school year. Another service to debut next year is Quipper Live, which makes interactive classes available for teachers and students in real-time.

Quipper’s measure of success is evidenced by a pilot and NCR study, which suggests that students with constant or intermittent exposure to Quipper School classes are “more likely to foster higher mean score numbers and higher passing rates in tests, as well as better attendance percentages.”

•Among the growing number of learning institutions that have embraced Quipper’s learning solutions is Aguho Elementary School in Pateros, which saw its National Assessment Test ratings scale up to 18%.

•Also, the 2014 trial use to the 2015 actual use of Quipper School registered a 37% rise in the number of teachers who logged-in, 120% more teachers who created assignments, and 316% additional students who actively engaged with the service.

Quipper made its mark during the First National Principals’ Conference, which served as impetus for its partnership programs with schools and divisions, and also mounted a Partners’ Conference as avenues for teachers, principals, and DepEd officials to learn how to best maximize Quipper School.

The company has also released National Assessment Test content as well the Quipper Assessments, which aim to help schools determine their students’ current level of mastery.
