NEP proposes an annual school examination for all students in grades 3, 5, and 8 for testing core concepts, application of knowledge, and higher-order thinking skills. SAFAL (Structured Assessment For Analyzing Learning) levels will ensure progress throughout the school by providing relevant diagnostic information about students learning to schools and thus support schools’ education to move towards Competency-Based Education. CBSE has strictly invited all schools to participate in SAFAL. Measurement of student learning outcomes is important for improving the quality of education. Information gathered after student assessment can help students and educators to choose the next level in the education process.
Two kinds of assessment of student learning.
@ Individual assessments for students.
@ System-level assessments or evaluations for schools, regions, or national education system.
