In India, independent assessments conducted by organisations like ASER and Educational Initiatives show that students in Government schools are not learning well, and are not acquiring the expected competencies in basic literacy and numeracy. India has now enacted the Right to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) for all children from 6-14 years of age. Attaining the RTE goals on enrolment, access, equity, etc. are meaningful, only if the education students receive is of a desired quality. In our striving to provide quality education for all, it is important to establish two things –1. where we stand and 2. where we need to go. Well designed diagnostic assessments provide a clear picture of where we stand and are integral to any learning strategy that leads us to where we need to go.
