"Regular assessment and evaluation of the performance of schools will be done under this Education Quality Upgradation Year. Frequent internal tests should be given to the students and their performance in these tests should be considered as an indication of school's performance," Chief Secretary Alok Ranjan said in his circular issued to Divisional Commissioners and District Magistrates last night.
He said that new categorisation system in the academic session 2015-16 should be applied to assess performance of schools. Also, teachers and institutions performing well should be encouraged, he added.

"Special attention should be paid to academically backward students and schools should be motivated to provide safe and interesting study environment to students by strengthening required infrastructure by June 30, 2015," he said.
A state level achievement survey would have to be conducted to assess talent and difficult topics for the students, the Chief Secretary said. Based on this survey, corrective measures will be taken to improve the education system, he added.
Web-based monitoring system should be put in place by Education Director (Basic) to better analyse the reports and action taken on the basis of reports of school inspection by officials at state, division, district and block level, a circular said.
Necessary action would be taken against schools and teachers with below par performance, it said, adding that quality monitoring provisions should be applied in schools.
