CBSE app to help students, schools monitor progress

Soon schools affiliated with Central Board of Secondary Education will have a clear understanding on how well they are doing.

Thanks to Saransh – a new application introduced by the CBSE – which provides for comprehensive self-review for schools and students.

This tool will also help parents comprehend a school’s standing.The application has been created to help schools judge themsleves and their students.

“Saransh, provides schools a comprehensive drill down analysis. Based on the performance of the students from classes 9 to 12 in the Continuous and Comprehensive evaluation (CCE) and Problem Solving Assessments (PSA), schools and their students will be rated,” said CBSE.

A comparison with students of class 10 since 2007 and class 12 since 2009 can be drawn as well through this application, it added.

“All the performance metrics are presented in numbers as well as charts or graphs.

Saransh helps schools compare their performance vis-a-vis all CBSE-affiliated schools at various levels like national, regional, state and within their school category (government or private schools, Kendriya Vidyalayas),” said CBSE.

Heads of schools will be provided with an affiliation identity and password with which they can calculate the performance of their school in comparison with others.

“As of now, the tool is meant for only for schools and children. The plan is to extend it to parents as well who can then use the tool to understand their child’s development and learning process,” said Vineet Joshi, Chairman of CBSE in a statement.

Schools and teachers will need a good understanding of the system before circulating information about individual performances.
