The Haryana education department conducted simultaneous evaluation of students in around 250 government schools across the state on Friday.

The evaluation was done in schools, which were randomly selected across all the districts, to assess the learning level of students. The evaluation was done for students of classes I, III, V, VII, IX and XI. For classes I, III and V, evaluation was done on the basis of performance in languages and maths. For classes VII and IX, evaluation was done for five subjects and for class XI, the evaluation on the basis of all subjects. A question paper with 15 objective questions was given to the students and an on-the-spot evaluation was done.

Additional chief secretary, school education department, Haryana, P K Das said: “The plan is to conduct the test every fortnight in 250 schools every time to test the learning levels among students for chapters covered in the previous months. There is speculation that many of our students are not up to the skill levels of that particular class in which they are studying. It is also a test of the teachers if they are meeting the minimum benchmark of performance.”

He added: “We have decided that 50 per cent correct answers is the bench mark. Those schools in which a particular class and a subject has not yielded 50 percent plus, we will tell them that we will give two months time in which the schools will be evaluated again. Through the test, we would indicate a miserable performance and a good performance. Improvement will then be brought about.”
