Union HRD (Human Resource Development) Minister said that “stress
should be given on ‘learning outcome assessment’ in primary schools. There is a
need to conduct it before promoting students”.
The Minister was addressing at the Golden Jubilee
Celebrations at Lal Bahadur Shastri Shiksha Seva Niketan at Manda. He said “parameters
are being decided for evaluating the learning outcome”.
The minister said that “No-Exam, under the Sarva Shiksha
Abhiyan for primary classes, doesn’t mean No-Learning for Students”.
The government will soon decide on the parameters for the
learning outcome assessment and the pattern for CBSE Class X exams. All the
changes would be effective from 2017-18”.
Javadekar also said “The higher education institutes should
focus on research, development and innovation. The government is working to strengthen
such activities in higher education institutions”.
Speaking on the new education policy, the minister said that
“the same would be finalized in the next three four months”.
