50% students lack skills for their current grades: Survey

Education NewsNew Delhi: Fifty per cent of students entering any class lack the requisite skills like academic, cognitive and vocational for that level, said teachers in a survey. A majority of the teachers also believed that India’s assessment system primarily focuses on exam results, the survey conducted Pearson, an organization involved in the field of education, today said.

The “voice of teacher survey” also revealed that teachers are least satisfied with the support they receive from parents and policy makers. “Majority of the teachers (92 per cent) believe that India’s assessment system, primarily, focuses on exam results. “In fact, teachers consider skill and personality development as the most important benchmark for measuring learner success, followed by preparedness for higher education and job and lastly the test and exam results,” the report said.

However the silver lining of the findings showed that 79 per cent of teacher’s belief that the learning environment has improved over the past decade. They consider real-life and practical exposure as the key factor in driving learning outcomes, followed by technology integration into teaching, training on new methodologies and improved curriculum and assessment framework.
