COO, Ryan Group of Institutions
Children learn at their own pace, and in different ways. We cannot have a uniform testing method for all of them. Over the last few years, the government has also become active. The CCE manual is extremely comprehensive, child- and school-friendly, and if followed properly, it can bring a revolution in the assessment of kids.
Director-Academics, Next Education
Teaching methodologies are important before we assess students. Delivering education content only will not work. We should make students understand and deliver knowledge with the right objective of that content.
|S A M V Prasada Rao,
CEO and Principal, DRS International School
Assessment is an integral part of teaching and learning. Its prime objective is to provide feedback on the learning process. Schools are expected to develop assessment procedures and methods that reflect the philosophy and objective of the programmes run by the school. Information that has been put in the brain is like a closed file and gets wiped off as soon as the exam is over.
Education Attache, The Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia
We have to evolve our secondary education. Higher education too, in Indonesia faces a lot of challenges with the gross enrolment ratio being 26 percent. Yet, we are on a higher side in comparison with India which is around 16 percent. India and Indonesia have signed a memorandum of understanding on education cooperation last year.

Is it possible for an assessment system or a combination of its parts to fully satisfy our requirements of a reasonably comprehensive assessment?
