Attempts to address the lacuna in our education system have primarily focused on more budget from governments, infrastructure/ facilities, quality teachers training, and curriculum and syllabus.
However, little to no impetus has been laid upon overhauling the face of assessments, which arguably is a key pillar of the modern-day education system.
The traditional approach indicates that the examination system has collapsed the education system. Students are graded "Pass or Fail" rather than being assessed for their skills and weaknesses.
They create an education system that puts most students behind, and they learn nothing.
Assessments' impact on education has been repeatedly emphasised. The Kothari Commission (1964–66) stated: “Examination at the elementary level should encourage learners to enhance their success in the fundamental abilities and establish the proper habits and attitudes.” The National Education Policy (2020) states, “The major objective of the assessment will truly be for learning; it will allow the teacher and student, and the whole schooling system, continually adjust teaching-learning processes to enhance learning and development for all students.”
With this context and the overarching aim to expedite the education revolution, the Delhi Government established the Delhi Board of School Education.
