  • Delhi govt sets the target for grade wise learning outcomes

03rd March 2017

Deputy Chief Minister Mr Manish Sisodia on Friday chaired the meeting to discuss the draft grade wise Learning Outcomes prepared by NCERT for classes 1-8. The meeting was attended by Secretary Education, Director Education, Director SCERT and other senior officials of the Directorate of Education.

Mr Sisodia reiterated that from the academic year 2017-18 onwards, instead of merely completing the syllabus, the focus should be on attaining the grade wise learning outcomes. He also pointed out that the outcome indicators should be self explanatory for the teachers so that she can track the progress of her students on a regular basis and is able to not only take corrective actions but also being able to communicate about the same to the parents of the students.

It was decided that SCERT, being the academic authority of the NCT of Delhi for the purpose of Section 29 of the RTE Act, would prepare the grade wise learning outcomes by adopting/adapting the NCERT’s draft in the context of Delhi. Further, the Directorate of Education would invite the teachers union like GSTA, DASTAN, DASS, Teachers Union of Municipal Corporations, Aided Schools Teachers Associations and Private Unaided Teachers Associations to give their written inputs on the NCERT’s draft in the context of Delhi and how to ensure that it is actually attained.

SCERT would also conduct training of all Directorate of Education’s teachers of Std 1-8 by June 2017 to strengthen their pedagogical skills in order to improve learning of children in these classes.

Besides, an Assessment Unit would be set up under the Directorate of Education with the mandate of developing the assessment tools and supervising its administration to measure the learning outcomes across schools. This Unit will help the department in understanding the learning issues empirically and in designing future training or other support strategies.
