‘Saransh’ the performance comparison tool developed by the CBSE has been made accessible to parents as well, giving them a snapshot how the child is faring academically, at school, state, regional and national-level. The online web portal launched two years back was earlier accessible to school heads only. A mobile app of the tool has also been released.

Saransh, that started functioning last year, has been helpful, opine school heads. School heads said the online tool through its portal is helpful in judging the performance of the students and school’s overall performance as well. “Saransh is definitely going to bring in more transparency into the performance of schools and enable them to judge performance,” said Harmeet Kaur Waraich, principal, Nankana Sahib Public School. “It will be of immense help to new schools to see where they stand in particular, giving them clues of the strong and weak areas and how they can improve,” she said. “After the data collected from Saransh last year, CBSE warned some schools to moderate their class X assessments for discrepancies,” she said.

“It is a good initiative as it is also going to help parents see how the child is doing academically, as compared to other children at different levels. It would help the brilliant students in knowing how their performance figures at regional or national level,” Anjali, a school teacher said.

Parents welcomed the access to the portal. “It is a brilliant way of monitoring the child’s performance and compare where the child stands and can also speak with teachers,” said, Ruchi, a parent.

“Developing a mobile app is a good initiative, as parents who remain busy, can keep tabs on the children’s standing and performance through mobiles. My son is in a boarding school, and access to mobile app might help a lot,” said Harinder, another parent.

There will be many uses of this tool, Waraich said. With the access to the students’ performance and results, it will help in curbing fake degrees, she said.

As a statistical and comparison tool, it is going to help students see the areas they need to improve vis a vis the majority of the students, apart from enabling schools, teachers and parents to take corrective measures they need to take for improving their performance. “The statistical comparison of a student’s performance can also help in deciding about the choice of stream for students after completion of Class X,” Rajiv, a parent said.
