LUCKNOW: Around 44% students of classes 1 to 3 who took the NIPUN Assessment Test (NAT) got 60% and above marks and achieved the targets set for attaining universal foundational literacy and numeracy in primary schools under the NIPUN Bharat Mission.
In a pilot project, the basic education department in October and November last year conducted NAT in 11 districts of Lucknow and Ayodhya divisions to measure the learning outcome in children from Class 1 to 3.
The results, released on Wednesday, showed that 11% students scored between 90-100%, with A+ grade, and 15% scored between 75-90% with A grade. Another 18% of the students scored between 60-75% and earned grade B.
In all, 29.3 lakh students took the test, of whom 28.9 lakh were declared successful. For the first time, an assessment test was organised using OR sheets and an artificial intelligence technology based mobile application called ‘Saral App’.
For the first time, the department conducted an assessment test using OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) pattern. While students from class 1 to 3 had oral assessments with their teachers filing their OMR sheets, students from class 4 to 8 filled the OMR sheet on their own. These sheets were scanned and uploaded on the Saral app that auto-verified the correct and incorrect answers. Post the results, director general, school education, Vijay Kiran Anand has asked officers to extend supportive supervision to around 16.1 lakh students from the above 11 districts who scored below 60% in NAT and, thereby failed to achieve the NIPUN stage-wise targets.
Among 11 districts, Sultanpur put up the best show with 63.1% of its students from class 1 to 3 scoring above 60% in the test. This was followed by Ambedkar Nagar where 61% students scored above 60%. Ayodhya secured third position with 53.8% of its students scoring above 60% marks.
The poorest show was put up by Lakhimpur Kheri and Hardoi.
