Methodology of Gunotsav:

  • Evaluation will be done on Scholastic [Both Skill (Reading, Writing & Numeracy/Basic Mathematical Operations) & Subject Areas], Co-scholastic, Community Participation and Infrastructure.
  • Scholastic evaluation will be for Class 1-9. As the academic year has started in April and Gunotsav, 2022 is also scheduled in May/June, question papers will be administered to students of next higher class. Though Class 1-9 levels will be assessed, students from Class 2-10 will be covered. Hence, students of Class 2 will get question paper of Class 1 and so on for the rest of the classes.
  • Evaluation will be OMR based. From Class 3 onwards, students will fill up the OMR sheet themselves. For Class 1 and 2, class wise OMR sheets will be there for marking/transferring of responses. From Class 3 onwards, OMR sheet will be for individual child.
  • There will be both self-evaluation and external evaluation. Evaluation will be for two days for each school. Self-evaluation (Reading skill and School Evaluation) will be conducted by schools in presence of SMC/SMDC on the 1st day of Gunotsav.
  • On the day of external evaluation, evaluation will be done for all the students on three skills (Reading, Writing & Numeracy/ Basic Mathematical Operations) and subject areas.
  • The external evaluator will randomly select 20% students for each of the three skills (Reading, Writing & Numeracy) and will assess their performance. He/she will closely monitor the overall evaluation process.
  • The external evaluator will assess the areas of school evaluation (Co-scholastic, Community Participation and Infrastructure) and will fill up the OMR sheet by himself/herself.
  • Individual question papers will be provided to each student. Both skill and subject parts will be in the same question paper.
  • On the day of external evaluation, the teachers will be interchanged within the cluster. The time schedule of schools of Tea Garden areas will be same as other schools.

This massive exercise will generate awareness amongst teachers, students, parents, community and other stakeholders on importance of quality education and positive feeling towards Govt. school system. Department of Education and Samagra Shiksha, Assam appeals all to support Gunotsav, 2022 and make this event a grand success.
