Global bodies express interest in setting up India’s first school exam regulator



The National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT) has been approached by three global educational non-profits, namely, Educational Testing Services (ETS), American Institutes for Research (AIR) and the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) to set up a school exam regulator.

This regular will be called ‘PARAKH’ aka Performance Assessment, Review and Analysis of Knowledge and Development. These three global bodies have expressed their interest in setting this up which will become India’s first national school examination and assessment regulator to NCERT.

Furthermore, PARAKH will be instrumental in “establishing comparative measures and equivalence” among school examination boards and promoting collaboration among them.
