Research 1
Framework for Community-Based Literacy Programs
Bautista, J., Gutierrez, M., Macahilig, H., Gatcho, A., & Dolba, S.LCCThis grounded theory research sought to unpack the elements of exemplary community-based literacy programs of local government units or local communities in the Philippines. The themes that make up the framework for exemplary community-based literacy programs and engagement are hereby discussed.Monograph2019FINAL 2019 LCC Technical Report

Validation Literature: Standards, Indicators
and M&E Tool
Bautista, J., Gutierrez, M., Varela, L., Batang, B., & Tamayo, M.LCCThis research sought to validate on a national scale the Foundational Framework for Exemplary Community-based Literacy Programs and Engagement (Bautista et al., 2019) which includes its corresponding standards and performance indicators. Data were collected through a combination of Likert-type and open-ended-type of survey questionnaire administered during the National Literacy Conference in 2019.Monograph2020FINAL 2020 LCC Technical

M&E Tool for Community-Based Literacy Programs
Bautista, J., Gutierrez, M., Varela, L., Batang, B., & Tamayo, M.LCCThis Analytic Scoring Rubric is based on two researchers entitled, A Foundational Framework for Exemplary Community-based Literacy Programs and Engagement by Bautista, Gutierrez, Macahilig, Gatcho, and Dolba (2019) and the National Validation of the Foundational Framework for Exemplary Community-based Literacy Programs and Engagement by Bautista, Gutierrez, Varela, Batang & Tamayo (2020). This tool contains the ten (10) standards of the Foundational Framework, its relevant Indicators and its Achievement Progressions which are labeled into a four-scale graduation or categories namely: 1) Beginning; 2) Emerging; 3) Accomplished; and 4) Exemplary, the latter being the highest benchmark of community performance.Monograph2020FINAL Analytic Scoring Rubric
DRN 2020-01 Vol. 38 No. 1: New college grads 'mismatched' to their jobsPIDS Research Information StaffPIDSThis first issue of the Development Research News (DRN) for 2020 puts light on some key challenges in the Philippine education sector. The banner story talks about the current mismatch between the skills learned by the graduates and those needed by the industry today. This was evident in the data science and analytics field--despite being one of the most in-demand jobs. Articles on the challenges faced by reform programs targeting the country's secondary and higher education are also included in the issue. Another article highlights the high labor migration rates among Filipino workers and the role played by social networks.Monograph2020New college grads 'mismatched' to their jobs
PN 2020-04: Aligning Higher Education with Demands for Data Science WorkforceQuismorio, Brenda A.; Pasquin, Maria Antonette D.; Tayco, Claire S. ;PIDSAmid the Fourth Industrial Revolution (FIRe), there has been an increasing demand for data science and analytics (DSA) workforce in the Philippines. Sadly, DSA skills remain underdeveloped among the Philippine workforce. This Policy Note provides evidence on the current DSA skills gaps in the Philippines in light of the country’s preparation for FIRe. Among others, it finds a scarcity of DSA competencies in the current workforce and a misalignment between the demand and supply of DSA workforce in the country. To address these issues, the study urges the government to adopt a framework to define the practice of DSA in the country. It also recommends the promotion of government-industry-academe linkages.Monograph2020Aligning Higher Education with

DP 2019-34: Assessing the Alignment of Philippine Higher Education with the Emerging Demands for Data Science and Analytics WorkforceQuismorio, Brenda A.; Pasquin, Maria Antonette D.; Tayco, Claire S. ;PIDSRapid advancement in technology has allowed for far-reaching use of data. This has consequently led to an increasing demand for Data Science and Analytics (DSA) professionals. However, recent studies show that such demand is often not met in many economies. Such DSA skills shortage is claimed to be rooted in the mismatch between the skills the industry demands and the skills academic institutions supply. To allow the growth and maturity of the still infant analytics industry, there is a need to address the current lack of a common definition of the analytics profession among stakeholders. The study further endorses the promotion of government-industry-academe linkages to expand the existing market for DSA workforce in the country.Monograph2020Assessing the Alignment of Philippine Higher Education with the Emerging Demands for Data Science and Analytics Workforce
DP 2019-06: 'Starting Where the Children Are': A Process Evaluation of the Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education ImplementationMonje, Jennifer D.; Orbeta, Aniceto C. Jr., Francisco-Abrigo, Kris A.; Capones, Erlinda M. ;PIDSThis process evaluation determines how the program is proceeding since the passage of Republic Act 10533 or the Enhanced Basic Education Act of 2013. It specifically looked at program theory, service delivery and utilization, and program organization. To capture the breadth of conceptual and implementation issues, 18 randomly selected elementary schools were visited from among private and public school systems, distributed according to Department of Education’s (DepEd) typology of small, medium, and large schools; island groupings of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao; and from both linguistically diverse contexts and less linguistically diverse communities.

DP 2018-25: Out-of-School Children: Changing Landscape of School Attendance and Barriers to CompletionDavid, Clarissa C.; Albert, Jose Ramon G.; Vizmanos, Jana Flor V.;PIDSThis paper aims to: (1) obtain estimates of out-of-school children (OOSC), both in magnitude and rates; (2) profile OOSC and their families, as well as provide a discussion of the reasons why these children are out of school, and what makes children at risk of dropping out of school; and (3) discuss and recommend policies to reduce OOSC in the country. The full support placed on programs designed to reduce school dropout cases, particularly the Alternative Learning System, in the last administration has brought under-educated Filipinos back to school. The paper also provides concrete recommendations for addressing both demand- and supply-side bottlenecks to schooling.Monograph2020Out-of-School Children: Changing Landscape

PN 2018-17: Barriers and Bottlenecks to School Attendance: An UpdateAlbert, Jose Ramon G.; David, Clarissa C.; Vizmanos, Jana Flor V.;PIDSThis Policy Note describes the profile of out-of-school children (OOSC) in the Philippines. Among others, it finds that school attendance in the country remains largely an economic issue as more than half of OOSC come from low-income families. Attendance is likewise gendered, as 2 in every 3 OOSC were boys, some portion of which may be caused by the need to augment the family income. Across regions, the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao posted the highest OOSC rate. To address these issues, this study urges the Department of Education to consider suggestions for addressing gender disparities in participation and performance of children. Possible supply-side interventions include policies on hiring more male teachers, subject to review, and diversifying teaching strategies to include activities that may reduce the learning deficit between sexes.Monograph2020Barriers and Bottlenecks to
