Improving learning levels through technology enabled systemic assessment reforms
Vidya Vikaasam is aimed at improving learning levels of school going children in Andhra Pradesh by 6-8% over three years, through technology enabled systemic assessment reforms. Improvement in learning levels will be achieved through institutional capacity building, enabling integrated data systems and leveraging analytics across all levels. The key objectives of the program are:
Building of institutional assessment capacity in the state through a proposed Assessment Cell, which will be an elite body trained to design scientific and high quality assessments, test administration, analysis and dissemination to teachers and administrators.
Recognition of schools and teachers who have contributed to children's holistic development and collation of best practices from across the state. Letters signed by the Hon'ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh are sent to all high schools based on their performance in SSC 2016-17
Identification of the variables (e.g. socio-economic conditions, teacher training, pupil teacher ratio etc.) that may have a significant impact on a child's learning levels. This will assist the state in policy level decision and programmatic interventions planning.
