The Ministry of Education’s Department of School Education and Literacy today released the National Achievement Survey (NAS) 2021 report, which assesses the health of the country’s school education system by conducting a comprehensive evaluation survey of children’s learning competencies in classes III, V, VIII, and X over a three-year cycle. It reflects the overall evaluation of the school education system. The most recent NAS was held in 2017.
Objective of SAS
The goal of SAS is to assess children’s progress and learning competencies as an indicator of the effectiveness of the education system to take necessary remedial activities at various levels. It will support state/UT administrations in developing long-term, mid-term, and short-term initiatives to improve learning levels and orient on differential planning based on NAS 2021 data.
NCERT produced and translated the achievement exams, as well as the questionnaires (student questionnaire, teacher questionnaire, and school questionnaire), into 22 different languages. The CBSE conducted this nationwide poll on a single day at the same time. The National Informatics Centre planned and constructed a technology platform to manage the survey (NIC).
