1. Measurement of Outcomes
Diagnostic assessments are conducted, as well as baseline and endline assesments are conducted to evaluate the impacts of an educational intervention. From these assessments, student learning levels are evaluated, recommendations are made, and misconception analyses can be presented to better teaching habits and student learning.
Student Progress Tracking System, which is an online system that tracks year-on-year progress of students on scholastic and co-scholastic skills. SPTS comprises a comprehensive database of students, teachers and schools, as well as online support. The system can help policy makers, school managements and teachers get accurate data for taking timely decisions.
Teacher Needs Assessment, which identifies common strengths or weaknesses among teachers, provides feedback to individual teachers, and recommends specific system level interventions for teacher improvement. Teacher Training Tracking System, which like the SPTS, is an online system that tracks year-on-year progress of teachers in the case of educational intervention. Action Taken Interactions System, which allows teachers to record the actions they are taking to rectify the shortcomings that are recognised post their assessment.
2. Capacity Building
To carry a project forward once an organization’s involvement with EI has been completed, we undertake training and capacity building of the organization’s employees by working alongside them.
(ii). Teacher Workshops
This includes both Personal Improvement Programmes as well as Social Improvement Programmes. Workshops and support is offered to train teachers in the methods of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation.
(iii). Continuous Teacher Support
As a part of this we monitor, observe, and evaluate teachers. Teaching and testing methods are analysed, and recommendations are made by our experts, who are available 24/7 to provide support.
3. Educational Research
(i). Misconception Analysis
Through our assessments and interviews we gather more information on the ways in which students think about and answer different questions, and assess the sources of various misconceptions to improve teaching techniques and student learning.
(ii). Student Interviews
While assessment results identify the different wrong answers students provide for a concept, it does not fully explain why students answer in that way. In order to find that out, one approach was simply to ask students this in a ‘student interview’. These interviews are typically conducted in the class itself by trained interviewers.
(iii). Post Analysis Workshops
After assessment analysis, we conduct workshops to explain the Project Reports and findings to those who were involved in the study, and to inform the education community of the results and recommendations of our project.
