Abstract—This paper concerns the learning outcomes of the
students’ in basic education in the subjects Science and
Mathematics as a basis for a proposed Continuing Professional
Development (CPD) for teachers in Diliman Elementary School
(DES) in the Philippines. It employs document analysis of the
Mean Percentage Score (MPS) of the National Achievement
Test results for a five-year period from 2013-2018. Results show
that learning outcomes in Science per Grade/Level is increasing
as reflected by their mean of 78.82, 80.22, 81.01, 81.71, 81.92,
and 82.30 respectively but per school year, the result was
generally declining. For Mathematics, learning outcomes vary.
It can be noted that there is an increase in performance for
Grades I, II, IV and V. However, learning performance for
Grades III and VI decreases. As per School Year (SY), learning
outcomes in Mathematics reported a diminishing pattern,
aggregate performance decreases as the year progresses. It can
be safely concluded from the results of the study that learning
outcomes in basic curriculum is declining as time advances. A
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Plan was
proposed and highly recommended for implementation.
Index Terms—Basic education, continuing professional development (CPD), learning outcomes, teachers.
