Chandigarh April 16:
Haryana Education Department has introduced an assessment dashboard namely ‘Saksham Adhyapak Dashboard’ to create visibility on student learning levels in government schools of the State. It not only shows the performance of students in various subjects but also mentions the learning outcomes or concepts which students have not been able to understand, so that teachers can reteach the same.
While stating this here today, a spokesman of the Department said that the dashboard has been introduced as a part of ‘Saksham Haryana’ initiative of the state in which the government plans to make at least 80 per cent students in Haryana grade-level competent.
He said that the ‘Saksham Adhyapak Dashboard’ is based on the standardized monthly assessment tests (MAT) in the state. After each exam, the teachers enter some data online which allows for generation of this dashboard. Currently, the dashboard has been introduced only for classes 1st to 8th but the department plans to expand it further in the coming future. The dashboard is already being used for district and state level reviews in the state, he added.
The spokesman said that in March itself, the dashboard was used to analyse district and block performance in over 53 sub-divisions in the state in Saksham Haryana reviews chaired by Sub Divisional Magistrates (SDMs). In the last 20 days, the dashboard has been viewed over 58,000 times by over 8,000 unique users including school heads, Block Education Officers and District Education Officers, he added.
