Foundational learning study by MoE and NCERT

Recently a report on education has been released by Foundational Learning Study (FLS), Ministry of Education and NCERT.

The Foundational Learning Study (FLS) in this report states that 11% of children in Class III do not have basic math skills.

The FLS was jointly organized by the Ministry of Education and the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT).

Unlike the National Achievement Survey (NAS), the FLS’s findings are based on a personal interview with each participant.

NAS evaluates the learning outcomes of students in classes III, V, VIII and X through Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) based tests.

Key findings of FLS-

  • Nationally, 11 percent of students did not have basic grade-level skills. While 37 percent of the students had limited skills.
  • In terms of numerical knowledge, Tamil Nadu had the highest number of students who could not solve even the most basic class-level questions. It is followed by Jammu and Kashmir, Assam, Chhattisgarh and Gujarat.
  • Foundation learning refers to basic skills in reading, writing and mathematics. It is the ability to read and understand the basic text and perform simple mathematical calculations by the end of class 3.
  • Lagging behind in foundation learning makes children more vulnerable, as it negatively affects their learning outcomes.

Key Initiatives for Foundation Learning –

  • NIPUN Bharat Initiative (National Initiative for Proficiency in Reading Comprehension and Number Counting) has been launched.
  • National Education Policy (2020) has been implemented.
  • The Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister issues reports on the state of basic literacy and numeracy in India.
