He argued that the conventional education in the schools through physical classes was hampered for long days in the last one and half years. Although online and neighbourhood classes by the teachers had been conducted randomly to cover up the loss and to motivate the students, this NAS will emphasize the learning stage in the Covid situation.

WhileEnvironmental Science, Language and Mathematics would be taken for assessment of the students of Class III and V, Language, Mathematics, Science and Social Science would be assessed for the students of Class VIII and Mathematics, Science, Social Science, English and Modern Indian Language for Class X students, Nath underlined.

Based on the NAS report, the ministry will take necessary steps to eliminate the weakness but the state government would also devise a mechanism to improve the stage of learning, if required. As many as 1,797 field investigators and 1,087 observers have been assigned for the survey in the state, he said.

As part of preparations, he said, two mock tests have already been conducted in the state to get the students acquainted with the assessment method. Tripura government had conducted a baseline survey in 2019 according to which only 43 percent students were found to be fit (in terms of learning) in their respective classes.

Based on the results, the state government had introduced a new scheme ‘Notun Disha,’ which has delivered a good result but it was disrupted following the Covid pandemic, Nath said, adding that NAS in this situation is important for assessing the learning outcome of the students.
