New Delhi, Jul 26 (PTI):
The National Achievement Survey (NAS) to assess learning achievement of children in government and private schools will be conducted by NCERT in November, Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said on Monday. The survey was last conducted in 2017 for classes 3, 5 and 8 and in 2018 for class 10.
The information was shared by Pradhan in response to a written question in Lok Sabha about whether any study or survey has been conducted to evaluate the quality of school education of the country, especially keeping in view the recent increase in online classes.
“The National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) conducts periodic national sample surveys to assess learning achievement of children in classes 3,5, 8 and 10. The National Achievement Survey (NAS) 2017 was held on 13th November 2017 for assessing the competencies of children at the grade levels 3, 5 and 8 from across 701 districts covering all the 36 States and UTs and covered 22 lakh students from 1.10 lakh schools,” he said.
