This basic educational surveys supply the input to build up the educational plans at micro and macro level respectively, and that helps to invent the new plan and policies to monitor the overall growth of primary education system.

Measurement of education quality:
The educational survey or assessment process can be defined as quick knowledge tool to understand the current knowledge of primary education system. This knowledge tool can easily recognize that what a learner knows is often changing and helps the primary education board to judge the student achievement through a comparison over a time span. This process provides the accurate measurement on student's performance and help teachers to take the right decision to improve the structure of primary education.
Rural structure in primary education:
A major part of Indians till lives in villages, so the development of rural education is more important. According to the survey of primary education in India, reports that number of students attending primary school is rising, but half of them are unable to read second grade text books or to solve the basic standard mathematics problems. There are few reasons why the rural education fails to achieve the standard in primary education. The main concern in rural schools suffers from less committed teachers, lack of proper text books or learning materials. Most of the people in village area already understood the importance of primary education is to get rid of poverty. But, still they are not able to send their children to primary schools because of monetary problem. These educational surveys are the eye opener for our government to take necessary steps to ensure the basic primary education for rural development.
Teachers point of view:
According to the report of survey of primary education in India, huge percentage of teachers indicated that there is insufficient space or scope to report the problems that they faced in their daily basis activity. They also claimed that the survey criteria were used to make the holistic judgment to improve the performance oriented practices for overall growth of primary education. Some of the quires are mentioned here like teachers used open ended questions to facilitate learner's thinking; small group of students learns collaboratively; manipulative materials and so on. Depending on the responses, we should continue to explore the aspects of teachers' practices and it will provide the teachers with the strategies to cope issues and tensions that impede further improvement of primary education system.
