The study assessed Filipino college students’ conception of assessment using Brown’s (2008) framework. A Filipino version of the Student Conceptions of Assessment was constructed and the items were made for Filipino college students’ experience of assessment in higher education. There were 100 items that were initially constructed based on the definition of the factors in Brown’s Model VI framework. There were 200 Filipino college students who served as participants. Initially, a four-factor model was tested using the CFA. The model did not attained an adequate fit: χ2=13114.8, RMSEA = .08, GFI =.04 , AGFI =.04. Principal components analysis was conducted to explore the possible factor structure for the items since it did not fit the CFA. There was only one conception of assessment dimension with factor loadings of .50 obtained with 31 items. The model with one dimension was tested again using the CFA and the model attained an adequate fit: χ2 = 992.459, RMSEA = .07, GFI =.07, AGFI =.07, PGI=.85.
