In 2023, the Department of Education (DepEd) is piloting a new basic education curriculum, dubbed as the Makabagong curriculum na napapanahon, Talino na mula sa isip at puso, Tapang na humarap sa anumang hamon ng buhay, Galing ng Pilipino nangingibabaw sa mundo (MATATAG). The new curriculum significantly decongests the existing curriculum to focus on foundational skills with the end goal of improving learning outcomes. This study supports DepEd’s pilot curriculum implementation by proposing a cluster randomized design that allows valid counterfactual estimation of the impact of adopting the new pilot curriculum, as well as documentation of drivers and bottlenecks in its implementation across a wide range of experiences.

The main objectives of this study are as follows:

1. Compare and contrast the content of the current and the pilot MATATAG K-to-10 intended curriculums;

2. Document challenges and opportunities in the implementation of the current and the pilot MATATAG K-to-10 curriculum; and

3. Assess the immediate impacts of the pilot MATATAG K-to-10 curriculum on teachers’ pedagogy and time-use, and students’ learning outcomes
