Sarnash – A new tool has been developed to help students, parents and heads of CBSE schools to periodically assess the performance of their school compared to other schools across the country.
Aptly named Saransh, the new tool was designed and developed by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). According to the initial feedback on the tool, it indeed provides practical and realistic means for self-reviewing and finding scopes for improvement.
The tool relies on various metrics including the performance of students from Classes 9 to 12 in the continuous and comprehensive evaluation (CCE) and problem solving assessments (PSA). Ratings will be provided to schools as well as the students at a scholastic and co-scholastic basis.
“Through this method a school’s performance and its position among similar schools will be known. This gives a subject wise analysis too. We will be able to gauge which subjects we are good at and which ones we need to focus on to improve the average,” said Ajeeth Jain, senior principal, Bhavans Rajaji Vidyashram.
During the initial phase of its implementation, heads of all CBSE schools across the country will be given an affiliation ID and password which they can use to log in and calculate the performance of their schools as compared to other schools in the region, state or even in the other remote parts of the
Meanwhile, parents will also be able to evaluate their children’s performance on regular basis, said Suma Padmanabhan, Principal, Asan Memorial Higher Secondary School. “For parents, the score of each school will help them choose where they want to admit their wards,” she said.
