National Achievement Survey - 2017 District Report Cards

The National Achievement Survey (NAS) was conducted throughout the country on November 13, 2017 for Classes 3, 5 and 8 in government and government aided schools.

 The survey tools used multiple test booklets with 45 questions in Classes III and V and 60 questions in Class VIII in Mathematics, Language, Environmental Sciences, Sciences and Social Sciences. The competency based test questions developed reflected the Learning Outcomes which were recently incorporated in the Central Rules for RTE Act by the Government of India. Along with the test items, questionnaires pertaining to students, teachers and schools were also used.

This is the Largest Assessment survey conducted in the country and is amongst the largest conducted in the world. The attainment of the competency based learning outcomes of 2.2 million students from 1,10,000 schools across 700 districts in all 36 States/UTs were assessed.

A web based application has been developed for generating the district wise learning report cards to reflect the disaggregated and detailed learning levels. Today, Hon’ble Minister for Human Resource Development, Shri Prakash Javadekar, released the autogenerated district report cards.

NAS district report cards containing district data have been released to the States & UTs and the same can be Downloaded here on MHRD website. The district data is released to the States and UTs for seeking their comments. This data is provisional data and will be finalized on receipt of comments from the States and UTs.

The District Report Cards contain various sections, including indicating the lowest performing area in Learning Outcomes.

Section on Average Performance of Students includes the following two parts: - (a) Overall learning levels 
(b) Disaggregated Performance levels on the basis of gender, location, social group and school management 
a) Overall learning levels are depicted in per cent e.g. if the Science performance of a district is shown as 60%, then it means that, on an average, students in this district correctly responded to 60% of the questions in Science. b) Section on disaggregated performance shows overall performance disaggregated for boys and girls; rural and urban students; students studying in government and government aided schools and students belonging to different social categories.
Section on Performance on Learning Outcomes, places student achievement against each of tested subject specific LOs e.g. if the performance of students in one learning outcome is 45%; then this implies that, 45% of the tested students could correctly answer that specific learning outcome.
Section on Range of Performance of Students who answered correctly shows the learning level of students distributed in the following four slabs i.e., below 30%; 30 to 50%; 50 to 75% and 75% and above. Number and proportion of students which fall within the above four performance ranges are mentioned in this section
The last section is dedicated to the identification of 5 Lowest Performing LOs. These are the LOs which require maximum intervention and support.
