Alternative Delivery Modes
Alternative Delivery Modes (ADMs)
Two of the major ADMs of DepEd include the Modified In-School, Off-School Approach (MISOSA) and the Enhanced Instructional Management by Parents, Community, and Teachers (e-IMPACT) MISOSA. MISOSA involves subdividing congested classes (with more than 50 students) in Grades 4, 5, and 6 into an in-School Group with classroom and subject teachers and an Off-School Group with para- or volunteer teachers. E-IMPACT on the other hand is a technology-enhanced ADM that addresses issues in accessibility and quality of education in schools handled by a few teachers teaching multigrade classes, and allows learners who are otherwise prone to prolonged or seasonal absences to enter and exit when needed, learning from modules with the support of fellow learners, family members, and the community, and their progress/advancement measured via mastery tests taken in the school.
