The Basic Education Information System (BEIS) is the primary MIS of the Department of Education. The BEIS processes data required for budget preparation, resource allocation and performance monitoring. The BEIS is currently composed of the following modules which cater to the different needs of the Department:

• School Statistics Module – Used to enter data from the Monthly Report on Enrolment and Attendance of Pupils/Students (Form 3) as well as other school statistics on teaching and nonteaching personnel, classrooms, furniture and toilets. These data are the basis for generating the budget reports and performance indicators of the Department. The system is also capable of monitoring the decrease in enrolment on a monthly basis. This allows education officials to identify schools with pupils/students at risk of dropping out even before the school year ends. Programs and projects can therefore be implemented within the school year to prevent these pupils/students from dropping out. 

• Physical Facilities Module – Designed to address the needs of the Physical Facilities Coordinator. It can currently record data from the School Building Card, the status of titling school sites and damages caused by calamities. 

• Achievement Module – Designed to process the results of the National Achievement Test as well as the Regional Achievement Test. 

• Textbooks Module – Used to encode and process school data on textbooks. It generates reports that facilitates planning and budgeting of textbook needs by grade area and subject level as well as identifying areas with excess books that can be redistributed to schools with shortages. 

• Health and Nutrition Module – Used to encode and process the nutritional status of pupils and students in public schools. 

• NCBTS Module – Used to identify the competency strengths and gaps between the expected and the current teacher’s competencies in terms of Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes measured through the Teacher’s Strengths and Needs Assessment (TSNA) of the National Competency-Based Teacher Standards (NCBTS). 

• Palarong Pambansa Module – Used to publish the official gallery of athletes who are qualified to participate in the Palarong Pambansa. The system was adopted by the National Screening Committee during the Palarong Pambansa 2010 held in Tarlac City from April 11-17, 2010. 

• School Sports Module – Used to record data for athletes and generate the masterlist of athletes participating in activities such as the National Palaro or the Regional Meets.
