Abstract

This study evaluates the implementation of Print-based Modular Distance Learning (PMDL) in a public elementary school in the Philippines during the Covid-19 pandemic. The research assesses the quality and extent of using self-learning modules for distance education. Data was collected from 112 teachers at Manuel L. Quezon Elementary School using a researcher-made survey questionnaire. The findings indicate that the self-learning modules utilized in PMDL demonstrated high quality and effectively covered essential learning competencies. However, there were identified areas that require improvement, specifically in grammar, syntax, spelling, and punctuation aspects. Overall, the implementation of PMDL, following the Four-Step Process recommended by the Department of Education, was generally successful. Nevertheless, the submission of answer sheets by parents or guardians revealed areas that need enhancement. Based on the research outcomes, an action plan with key recommendations is proposed to enhance the implementation process and improve the quality of self-learning modules. The aim is to foster more efficient and effective instruction delivery in future distance learning initiatives. The studys insights are of significant value for evaluating changes, enhancing school administrators preparedness, and addressing challenges related to PMDL implementation in public elementary schools.
