Performing Arts: Assessment of Learning in Grade 7 Mathematics


This study determined the effect of performing art as an assessment in Grade 7 Mathematics in the academic achievement of the Grade 7 students of Bicol University College of Education Integrated Laboratory School, the school year 2019-2020. Specifically, the study sought to answer the following sub-questions: (1) What lessons in Grade 7 Mathematics may be developed with performing arts as assessment? (2) What performing arts are presented by the students during the assessment of the lesson? (3) What mathematical concepts are evident in the performing arts? (4) What is the effect of the developed lessons on students in terms of conceptual understanding, 21st-century skills, and motivation in learning mathematics. The researcher employed a pre-experimental research design particularly a pretest-posttest design. Both qualitative and quantitative methods were utilized in analyzing the result in the lesson implementation. The qualitative data were obtained from the students’ journals and teachers remarks on the observation sheets. In the quantitative method, data were obtained from the pretest and posttest scores of the students. The results revealed that students’ conceptual understanding, 21st-century skills, and motivation in learning mathematics were enhanced and improved. Based in the teacher-observers, the students participated actively in the class discussions and performed well during the assessment of the lesson. With these, the students’ 21st-century skills such as communication, collaboration critical thinking, and creativity were developed and enhanced through performing arts in the assessment of the lessons for Grade 7 Mathematics.
