Delhi government is looking to assess learning outcomes of students between Classes III-V and VI-VIII in the month of December, Indian Express has reported. Students will be tested by their class teachers in Mathematics and comprehension skills both in English and Hindi.
This assessment will be used to check whether basic learning outcomes are required in the coming years. It is also aimed at checking the outcome of interventions by the government in the past two years. These findings will be collated by the Directorate of Education (DoE).
In July 2016, the Delhi government found that 44 per cent of students in Classes VI-VIII could read texts. To improve the situation, the students were divided into ‘non-readers’ and ‘readers’. An extra hour was dedicated to assist non-readers between 5 September 2016 and 14 November 2016.
This initiative was part of ‘Mission Chunauti 2018’. A similar exercise was conducted for students of Class III-VIII this year under ‘Mission Buniyaad’.
