The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has launched ‘Saransh’ software tool to monitor the progress of students and help them improve their performance. The ‘Saransh’ self review software tool will act as an effective interaction link between the parents and teachers and provide them data to monitor and evaluate the students’ overall performance in line with the goals set for the academic year.
The tool is part of central government’s 'Digital India Program' and aims to bring about transparency in CBSE’s teaching methods and enable parents to monitor real time performance of their children. The tool will be available for all CBSE affiliated schools allowing teachers as well as parents to take remedial measures in order to bring about effective changes in the study techniques of the students.
In the launch letter sent to all CBSE affiliated schools, the board informed that, "As you are aware, the CBSE has always been the educational organization with pioneering role in infusing ICT in examination system, thus bringing transparency and also partnering strongly in 'Digital India Program'. With a vision of improving children's education by enhancing interaction between schools as well as parents and providing data driven decision support system to assist them in taking best decisions for their children's future. CBSE has developed, in-house, a decision support system called Saransh."
The CBSE review tool ‘Saransh’ will be available through a web-portal and a mobile application to school teachers and parents.
