The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has rebuked the state for poor show of students after the National Achievement Survey uncovered the poor learning capacities of students, particularly those who concentrate in government schools.
It is worthwhile to mention here that the National Achievement Survey-2017 was conducted by the National Councilof Educational Research and Training under the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan. In the survey it was revealed that on average execution of students in various schools in the State of Jammu and Kashmir was lower than the national normal in almost all subjects at the primary, middle and secondary levels.
National Achievement Survey provide a measure of learning acros s a representative sample of students. They allow classification of students at a specific grade level by their ability (what students know and can do) in different subjects on the curriculum. National Achievement Surveys provide a “Health Check” to the education system by analyzing achievement based on a range of background factors (school, home, teachers). They potentially enable policy makers and practitioners to address the challenges to enhance student learning.
HRD Ministry recently held a meeting with the representatives of all states and Union Territories and threadbare discussions were held to discuss the survey and other important issues. Chairperson, J&K Board of School Education, Veena Pandita was also present at the meeting.
It was appraised in the meeting of the launch of the online knowledge network hub by the school education board by former Education Minister Syed Altaf Bukhari in February. She said the knowledge hub had helped students to access books and attend lectures by subject experts of national repute, thereby increasing their learning ability.
The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) had observed that it id due to lack of creativity and experimental learning among the students in both state-run schools and private schools were the main reasons for the poor learning abilities of students in J&K.
Although many workshops and seminars were being conducted in the state to educate the teachers, masters and lecturers about the latest teaching methodologies aiming to help students to learn in a more efficient manner for acquiring the performance based education.
