ABSTRACT

This is a quantitative research that utilized a quasi-experimental research,
specifically, the one group pre-test-post-test design. It sought to determine the
effectiveness of the training design and materials developed to enhance the
mathematics teachers’ competencies on the Enhanced K-12 Basic Education
Curriculum. Eighteen Grade 7 mathematics teachers in the Division of Passi
City who attended the Department of Education Regional Mass Training on
the Enhanced K-12 Basic Education Curriculum served as respondents of the
study. The post-test result based on the competency rating sheet (Adapted
from F3-M&E Form 5 of DepEd TEC) and End of Program Assessment
of the Department of Education Regional Mass Training on the Enhanced
K-12 Basic Education Curriculum was used as basis in determining the least
mastered skills and concept of the teachers. The identified least mastered
skills of the teachers were used as basis to develop a training design and
materials to enhance the teachers’ competencies on the Enhanced K-12 Basic
Education Curriculum. It was found out that the least mastered skills of
the teachers include concepts on sets, basic construction, data analyses and
interpretation, solving special products using models, and solving problems
involving measurements and real numbers. The result showed that there was
a significant difference in the competency of the teachers before and after the
conduct of the retraining. Hence, the training design and materials developed
was effective in enhancing the teachers’ competencies on the new curriculum.
