Education Ministry conducts ‘foundational learning survey’ to assess students’ reading ability



The Ministry of Education is going to conduct a ‘foundational learning study’ to acquire a first-hand understanding of the learning levels of the students at the end of Class 3. 

According to a statement from the education ministry, the foundation learning study will be conducted across all states and union territories by the NCERT over four days from March 23 to 26, 2022, in all sampled schools. Approximately 10,000 schools and one lakh students are expected to participate in the study.

“Focusing on learning achievement in the foundational years is pertinent in order to provide the learners with capabilities to make their subsequent learning experiences more meaningful and absorbing,” the notice reads. It is in line with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 as it highlights “the ability to read and write, and perform basic operations with numbers, is a necessary foundation and an indispensable prerequisite for all future schooling and lifelong learning,” it added.
