The government of Uttarakhand has decided to introduce a monthly assessment test in its schools. This provision was made with the aim of improving the quality of education in Hill State.
The state government had issued a government decree requiring the government and government-subsidized schools to hold a parent-teacher meeting every month.
Chief Secretary Utpal Kumar issued an order in this regard in Dehradun on Monday. The new government decree calls on the government and the government-subsidized school to organize a monthly assessment test for students in grades 1 to 12, upload the result to the website of the Ministry of Education and display it at school.
Schools are responsible for finalizing the result of the monthly assessment test before the 7th of each month and sending it to the directorate of education by the 10th of each month.
The government of Trivendra Rawat in Uttarakhand places high priority on bringing about qualitative change in the education system in Uttarakhand.
On the last Saturday of each month, schools will host the parent-teacher meeting during which the academic environment and the result of the monthly assessment test will be discussed.
The government of Uttarakhand has also called for the organization of a “day to remove doubts” every Saturday. On “Doubt Release Day,” students can dispel their doubts about the lessons learned that week.
