The assessment framework is in line with National Education Policy (NEP 2020) and is based on the NCERT curriculum. It aims to improvise the standard of Science, Maths and English lessons taught in Classes VI to X.
The focus will be on helping students gain conceptual clarity than limiting to rote-learning by developing skills and practical knowledge. This system will help the students in attempting pen and paper tests and it would work along with the regular textbook knowledge imparted in classrooms.
