 Shaala Siddhi (National Programme on School Standards and Evaluation) training for district mission authority officials, organised by Nagaland Education Mission Society Samagra Shiksha, was launched at its directorate here, Wednesday.

Speaking at the programme, additional director, Samagra Shiksha, Limawabang Aier stressed on the importance of inspection and monitoring and said more monitoring of the school performances would help change and improve educational system in the state. 

The additional director said that even as central government made mandatory for Shaala Siddhi (NPSSE), it was supposed to be conducted by the state as constant evaluation and monitoring in the school was necessary.

He maintained that when the teachers were in the field, DEOs and SDEOs were expected to monitor at least 10-15% however that was not done and asked officials present at the training to keep constant monitoring on performance of the school. 

The additional director stated that officers were more worried about their promotions instead of performing their duties, which he said was weakness of the department.

Reminding that learning curve declines by the age of 40 Aier urged the officials to take advantage of the SAMAGRA.

In his keynote address, deputy mission director SAMAGRA Shiksha, Liyalo Apon said there was evidence across the country of high performing schools having evaluation or inspection practices in place.

In view of the great need to improve the standard of education at the school stage, he said national programme of schooling improvement should be developed in which conditions will be created for each school to strive continually to achieve the best results. 

Apon also informed that as per Shaala Siddhi status report in Nagaland, self school evaluation showed that during 2016-17 182 schools were evaluated, 2018-19 1427 schools and 2019-2020, 1812 schools were evaluated while external evaluation was in progress as only 460 schools had completed in uploading while 23 were in progress. 

He said both self and external evaluation portal would be opened by March 1 and that school evaluation dashboard facilitates each school to provide consolidate self evaluation report in key performance domains and core standard including action for improvement in three aspects such as basic information about learners and teachers, school evaluation composite matrix and action continuous school improvement plan. 

Aier reminded that the consolidated data at the block, district and state level can also direct policy level decision across the state and said the training was organised for better coordination and to see progress in the schools. 

Earlier, the programme was chaired by deputy mission director SAMAGRA Shiksha, Chungngam Konyak.
