From the upcoming academic session in Jammu and Kashmir, the students will instead receive a multi-dimensional report card or a holistic progress card in place of a mark sheet.
Jammu: Starting with the 2019 academic session, the Jammu and Kashmir administration will introduce the Student Assessment and Evaluation Scheme (SAES), under which uniform question papers will be created for all government and government-recognized institutions.
The move, according to a representative for the government, is a major shift that would abolish the current examination system. The NEP-2020 exam reforms state that the goal of assessment will change from one that is summative and primarily tests rote memorization skills to one that is more regular and formative, is more competency-based, supports the learning and development of the students, and tests higher-order skills like analysis, critical thinking, and conceptual clarity.
Instead of receiving a grade sheet, the pupils would instead receive a multi-dimensional report card or a holistic progress card that would in-depthly reflect each learner’s individuality and progress. A software programme aided by artificial intelligence, according to him, would produce a 360-degree view of a student’s progress and assist him in selecting the finest career.
