“National Programme on School Standards and Evaluation (NPSSE) is envisaged as a positive step to enable all schools to continuously engage themselves in self-improvement”
The need for effective schools and improving school performance is increasingly felt in the Indian education system to provide quality education for all children. The quality initiatives in school education sector, thus, necessitate focusing on school, its performance and improvement. Therefore, a growing emphasis is being placed upon developing a comprehensive and holistic school evaluation system as central to school improvement.

The National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA), under the aegis of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), is leading the National Programme on School Standards and Evaluation (NPSSE). The NPSSE is an initiative that aims at evaluating each school as an institution and creating a culture of self-progression
with accountability. The NPSSE visualizes ‘School Evaluation’ as the means and ‘School Improvement’ as the goal.
The programme envisions reaching all schools of the country by creating a sustainable and institutionalized system of school evaluation. Therefore, it seeks to develop a common understanding across stakeholders– of the what, the why and the how of school evaluation.
“In view of the great need toimprove standards of education at the school stage, we recommend that a nationwide programme of school improvement should be developed in which conditions will be created for each school to strive
continually to achieve the best results of which it is capable”
Education Commission, 1964-66National Programme on School
