No Written Or Oral Exam For Pre-School Students: NCERT
GUWAHATI: The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has stated that no child in pre-school should have to give any written or oral exam as it is a harmful and undesirable practice.
Based on a report by Times Now News, the purpose of evaluation at the pre-school stage should not be to label the child as ‘pass’ or ‘fail'.
Following this news, the Council has made a list of some do’s and don'ts that state how the assessment should be carried out and reported as part of the “guidelines for pre-school education.”
These guidelines have also mentioned parameters for infrastructure, qualifications and salary for pre-school staff, admission process and records and registers that have to be maintained, monitoring and supervision mechanism and the importance of coordination and convergence with the community and parents.
