Indore (Madhya Pradesh): If figures are any indicator, Madhya Pradesh and its education hub, Indore, are taking quite a leap in the school education sector with this central state beating the national average in students’ performance.

The state average in almost all the subjects was above the national average and so was Indore’s. In fact, in English, where the nation’s average stood at 43 per cent, Indore inched up with 49 per cent. However, the state’s average stood at 42 per cent.

This was noted in the National Achievement Survey (NAS) published by the ministry of education. The NAS report assesses education systems across the country by conducting comprehensive evaluation of students from Classes 3, 5, 8, and 10 in subjects such as the languages, mathematics and science.

For the past couple of years, the government has collected data via a test and conducted sample-based NAS for Classes 3, 5, 8 and 10 with a cycle period of three years.

The sample size in Madhya Pradesh was 9,499 students—among the highest in the country. The survey tested students’ knowledge in various subjects, including Language, English, Mathematics, Social Science, Media and Information Literacy (MIL), Learning of Environmental Studies (EVS) and Science.

Class 8 & Class 10: Learning during Covid-19: +ve growth

While barely any district or state showed positive growth in learning outcomes on the ‘Learning during Covid-19’ parameter, Indore and Madhya Pradesh both showed ‘Significant Positive Learning’ in that column.

This is a promising sign for the state’s future in use of technology in education. “The state had started a unique campaign: ‘Hamara Ghar, Hamara Vidyalaya’. Under this, many activities were conducted engaging students with videos, radio school, TV classes, WhatsApp classes, Masti ki Pathshala and so forth. More than 59 per cent, even in Class 3 in the state, had access to Internet facility at home. In Class 10, more than 70 per cent had Internet access.
