The fourth industrial revolution changed the dynamics of living: we see the convergence of physical, digital, and biological dimensions emerge, powered by new technologies and platforms that connect us in new ways. An era of limitless possibility and opportunity, the 21st century is seen not only as a time of rapid advancement in technology but also a period where continuous improvements for learning and knowledge sharing has become a primary concern. Teaching tools, assets, and content offerings and evaluation have undergone change and disruptions to raise the bar of excellence higher to comply with a globally competitive horizon.  

Last 2015, the Department of Education released a policy which sought to reinforce the importance of comprehensive methods of student assessment, a move which works to complement the then newly implemented K to 12 program. DepEd Order No. 8 mandated educational institutions to make classroom assessment an integral part of the curriculum. Assessment helps keep track of learners’ progress, induce self-reflection and personal accountability, as well as enhance profiling systems to help students learn better within a dynamic environment. The assessment of an individual learner´s performance is no longer limited to the academic portfolio but has since shifted to include an ongoing process of identification, gathering, organization, and interpretation of qualitative and quantitative sets of information. These new categories are designed to highlight how and what learners know, and more importantly, what they can do with it in practical, real-world situations.

With this, the mixing and matching of skills from thorough evaluation processes could be an answer to the growing demand of a more diversified audience, moving towards better customization and personalization of education. This integrated method is centered on the student not only as a learner but more so as a whole child, a dynamic person. 

TYPES OF CLASSROOM ASSESSMENT

In this framework, there are two levels of classroom assessment. First is formative assessment which is an in-process evaluation of students’ performance during a lesson, unit or course. This type of assessment helps educators identify the strengths and weaknesses of learners, which in turn is vital in improving lessons, modules, instructional techniques and academic support provided to improve a students’ learning experience.

The second level is called summative assessment. Usually provided after a unit or period of learning is completed, this next step helps describe the degree or standard reached by an individual learner after a certain period in the educational calendar. The results are recorded and used to report on the learner´s achievement, based on the rubrics followed by the institution´s program. These forms of evaluation aim to heighten the potential of every learner, guiding them to face the challenges of the real world by providing concrete measures or valuation for each learner´s unique learning capacities and cognitive processes.



REX Book Store’s Assessment Tools for the 21st Century

In line with this renewed thrust in holistic education and its campaign for helping raise a Whole Child, REX Book Store has come up with various Assessment tools carefully researched and designed to enable, elevate, and engage learners and educators in expanding learners’ potential in the 21st century.

Some of these new Assessment tools include ACES+, an internationally benchmarked, outcome-based, Partnership for 21st Century Learning Skills aligned standard-based assessment program which helps measure the holistic development of a learner. Guided by the Whole Child Approach, this program covers the evaluation of a learner's cognitive and non-cognitive ability, knowledge dimension, levels of understanding, as well as providing guidance for critical and practical 21st-century skills. The program aims to help improve a learner's self-efficiency, interests, and general attitude towards problem-solving and curiosity.

With an evaluation and support system designed in this direction, REX Book Store hopes to help stakeholders of the learning process to take their potentials to the next level.  Through standard features such as reporting and review for students, reporting for parents; reporting, guidance, as well as additional instructional support for teachers, with a comprehensive report and mentoring guide for educational administrators, a more distinct and targeted way of teaching could hopefully be implemented to form the whole child. 

Educators are called to raise the bar in teaching by making sure learners are given a holistic form of learning that would allow them to function at their best as they interact with individuals and communities. Assessment exercises and tools then play a significant role in education today. Through a holistic approach to classroom assessment, schools and institutions would be able to evaluate and facilitate higher-order thinking skills and learning processes that would help groom the present generation of young learners for what the future challenges us to solve today.

Kids have been growing up with computers, mobile technology, and the Internet for many years now, and the use of these technologies is an integral part of modern life. There are few paths your child can take that won’t have at least a degree of technological interaction, and for the most part, this is a good thing. The information, experiences, and opportunities for communication can enrich lives and enable better standards of education, but with these benefits come risks. To keep your child safe, you need to make sure they understand how to look after themselves, why it’s important, and how to trust what they are reading.



Information literacy
This is the ability to not just read what you find online, but know how to check whether it’s truthful and accurate. Kids tend to believe everything they read on websites without stopping to consider that the facts could be incorrect or deliberately misleading. They are approaching their acquisition of knowledge with a naivety that comes from lack of experience.
Therefore, they need to be shown how to look behind the information on the screen and make sure it is from a reputable, authoritative source. Schools are making efforts in this direction, and if you’re fortunate, you may find your school librarian runs information literacy courses. It’s always worth spending time with your kids yourself though to make sure they have the ability to assess what they find online.

Security
Another aspect of computer use that kids tend to be naïve about is the machine itself. They won’t think about saving their work, or backing up their files unless you show them how and explain what can happen if they don’t. Kids need to understand how computers get infected with viruses, what can happen when they do, and how to avoid this occurring. They often don’t treat electronics with the delicacy they should, and mobile devices and laptops can frequently get dropped and bashed about. Prevention is always better than cure, but if your child does drop their laptop or loses all their files, a company like Secure Data Recovery can help restore the information.

Personal safety
This is the topic most parents worry about above all others – making sure their kids aren’t viewing unsuitable materials or getting involved in talking to undesirable characters. Parental restrictions are a common feature on most devices now, and there are apps that will lock down the device even further, to your precise specifications if you wish. Kids are naturally curious and will explore the links that appear, or search for information on unsuitable topics for their age, so some form of limitation is advisable. Again, schools should cover the basics of keeping your identity safe online and avoiding talking to strangers who may be pretending to be something they’re not, but parental vigilance is important too.

The benefits of having access to the Internet are so important, and in fact essential to your child’s progress in a modern society. You just need to make sure they are shown how to respect the technology and use it effectively.

Medical assistants are responsible for helping facilitate patient care under the direction and supervision of a physician. These professionals work in a variety of healthcare settings ranging from regional hospitals to smaller private clinics and even ambulances. Although medical assistants play a similar role to nurses, they require different educational credentials. Generally,this sector of healthcare is largely overlooked by students who are initially choosing their career path. 
In recent years, the number of students enrolling in medical assistant courses hasn’t been enough to match the upcoming demand in the field. With that said, here are five reasons why you may want to consider becoming a medical assistant.
1. Quick and Easy Educational Process
Perhaps the most noteworthy benefit of pursuing a career as a medical assistant is the quick and easy coursework involved. You can earn your Medical Assisting Diploma in just one year and be working as a professional just a few weeks after that. Plus, you can use directories to compare course providers and select the best medical assistant education for your needs. 
2. Job Openings in Every Region
Another notable advantage of being a medical assistant is the fact that you can move just about anywhere and still find a job due to the number of facilities and employers that are hiring.From the Philippines to the U.S., hospitals, clinics, and private doctors’ offices need medical assistants, and with so many openings available worldwide, you always have the option of relocating if you get tired of your current hometown. 
3. Guaranteed Employment Due to Medical Assistant Shortage
Numerous reports have indicated that there’s currently a significant shortage of medical assistants and other healthcare professionals, and with demand expected to increase in the near future, the shortage is only expected to worsen. 
4. Consistent and Predictable Scheduling
One of the downsides of being a nurse or doctor is that you often have to work long, unpredictable hours, and you may find yourself being called into work without notice. Most medical assistants don’t have to deal with this problem because in general, their schedules are fairly consistent, especially if you work for a clinic instead of a hospital. Of course, if you’d rather maximize your hours then you still have the option of doing so by working at a hospital or other facility that is need of full-time, on-call help. 
5. A Fast Gateway into the Medical Field 
Finally, becoming a medical assistant is one of the fastest ways to start working in the healthcare industry and amassing experience that will look good on your resume if and when you decide to advance your career. You can use your experience to decide how you want to proceed, and if you decide to become a nurse or doctor at a later date, you’ll already have a good report with employers.
An Ambulance of Career Options Later On
In closing, becoming a medical assistant gives you a chance to experience the inner workings of hospitals and clinics first-hand. During your time as a medical assistant, you can witness the duties and responsibilities of a wide variety of other healthcare positions to get a better idea of how you want to advance your own career.
