In its ongoing pursuit to enhance the quality of education in Uttar Pradesh, the state government has decided to organize a ‘Nipun Samman’ ceremony every month to honor meritorious students of class 1 to 3 of government primary schools.
According to a state government press release, the selected students will be honored in this ceremony in the presence of their parents and dignitaries. Students from classes 1-3 will be eligible for the meritorious student award if they meet their class’s proficient targets in Hindi and mathematics. In this sequence, there will be assessment of children’s skilful efficiency using the ‘Nipun Lakshya’ app, the press release reads.
Diploma in Elementary Education (D.El.Ed) trainees provide this assessment under the leadership of the principal, District Institute for Education and Training (DIET). Parents and other dignitaries will be invited to the ceremony and a badge will be awarded to the deserving student. It also improves the association between the school and the community.
The significance of encouraging all children and their parents to help their children become skilled students and the school to become a capable school will be published and motivated.
The principal of DIET will prepare a roster for the current session (January to March 2023) in which schools will be allotted to all D.El.Ed trainees. These trainees will visit the designated schools on the day of the assessment. Instructions are given to create the roster so that the assessment of the children on the ‘Nipun Lakshya’ app is completed once in all the districts’ schools from January to March.
In five working days per month, two D.El.Ed trainees will visit 10 schools (2 schools per working day). The trainees will assess children from classes 1-3 using the ‘Nipun Lakshya’ app. Thirty children in a school (10 children in each class) will be evaluated on the ‘Nipun Lakshya’ app by each trainee.
On behalf of director general, school education, UP, Vijay Kiran Anand, all educational and training institutions have appointed principals and district primary education officers in this regard.
