Section: National Education Policy 2020


This National Education Policy 2020 is the first education policy of the 21st century and aims to address the many growing developmental imperatives of our country. This Policy proposes the revision and revamping of all aspects of the education structure, including its regulation and governance, to create a new system that is aligned with the aspirational goals of 21st century education, including SDG4, while building upon India’s traditions and value systems. The National Education Policy lays particular emphasis on the development of the creative potential of each individual. It is based on the principle that education must develop not only cognitive capacities - both the ‘foundational capacities ’of literacy and numeracy and ‘higher-order’ cognitive capacities, such as critical thinking and problem solving – but also social, ethical, and emotional capacities and dispositions.

  1. Implementation of educational activities as per the recommendations of NEP-2020.
  2. Development of State Curriculum Framework
  3. Development of Syllabus
Main activities:
  1. Development of State Curriculum Framework
  2. Development of Syllabus
Development of State Curriculum Framework:

The curricular and pedagogical structure of school education will be reconfigured to make it responsive and relevant to the developmental needs and interests of learners at different stages of their development, corresponding to the age ranges of 3-8, 8-11, 11-14, and 14-18 years, respectively. The curricular and pedagogical structure and the curricular framework for school education will therefore be guided by a 5+3+3+4 design, consisting of the Foundational Stage (in two parts, that is, 3 years of Anganwadi/pre-school + 2 years in primary school in Grades 1-2; both together covering ages 3-8), Preparatory Stage (Grades 3-5, covering ages 8-11), Middle Stage (Grades 6-8, covering ages 11-14), and Secondary Stage (Grades 9-12 in two phases, i.e., 9 and 10 in the first and 11 and 12 in the second, covering ages 14-18).

The Foundational Stage will consist of five years of flexible, multilevel, play/activity-based learning and the curriculum and pedagogy of ECCE as mentioned in para 1.2. The Preparatory Stage will comprise three years of education building on the play, discovery, and activity-based pedagogical and curricular style of the Foundational Stage, and will also begin to incorporate some light text books as well as aspects of more formal but interactive classroom learning, in order to lay a solid groundwork across subjects, including reading, writing, speaking, physical education, art, languages, science, and mathematics. The Middle Stage will comprise three years of education, building on the pedagogical and curricular style of the Preparatory Stage, but with the introduction of subject teachers for learning and discussion of the more abstract concepts in each subject that students will be ready for at this stage across the sciences, mathematics, arts, social sciences, and humanities. Experiential learning within each subject, and explorations of relations among different subjects, will be encouraged and emphasized despite the introduction of more specialized subjects and subject teachers. The Secondary Stage will comprise of four years of multidisciplinary study, building on the subject-oriented pedagogical and curricular style of the Middle Stage, but with greater depth, greater critical thinking, greater attention to life aspirations, and greater flexibility and student choice of subjects. In particular students would continue to have the option of exiting after Grade 10 and re-entering in the next phase to pursue vocational or any other courses available in Grades 11-12, including at a more specialized school, if so desired.

To bring in the changes recommended in each stage and implement the recommendations of NEP-2020 and as per the directions of NCERT State has to prepare curriculum frame work for the following four areas.

Education means all-round development of man. As the saying goes, "A healthy mind is in a healthy body", the aim of education is to develop the child holistically. Physical and health education plays an important role in bringing about physical, intellectual, social, moral development. Therefore, there is a need to consider the field of physical education as an integral part of education.

The National Curriculum Framework-2005 advocates giving priority to holistic development of the child with qualitative education. In this respect physical education is activity based education which complements the learning of the child as well as the teacher. Physical education according to children's ability is as important as education according to their age.

Physical education is reflected in all things, in cars, when children come to school, when they go from school, when the teacher is in the classroom, when the teacher is not in the classroom, in and out of the classroom, students are making movements one by one. Hence physical education is not a separate subject but is integrated in all subjects.

  • To develop the capacity to devise innovative activities to embody the basic concept of physical education.
  • To design and organize necessary trainings for physical education teachers on changing national and state education policies, procedures and scenarios in the context of National Curriculum Framework- 2005 and National Education Policy-2020.

Kalika Chetharike 2022-2023

Due to the global spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, physical classes have not been held properly in 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 and schools have started late in the academic year 2021-2022. So far, programs like Setubandha, alternative educational plan, Vidyagama, Senveda have been implemented, but children have not attended school properly for two consecutive academic years, so it has been seen that children are lagging behind in learning the learning abilities of the previous two classes.

The ASER 2020 Karnataka report also revealed a decline in learning levels in both reading and numeracy, especially for primary classes, as children were out of school for 18 months in the wake of the pandemic. Also, with school closures, basic skills such as reading, performing addition and multiplication have been forgotten. NEP 2020 mentioned that apart from the learning lag caused by Covid, a large number of students in primary school currently lack the ability to read and comprehend basic text and to carry out basic operations such as addition and subtraction with numbers. The education policy advocates that every student in primary school should achieve basic literacy and numeracy as the first priority of the education system and only if this basic learning requirement is achieved first will provide a strong foundation for implementing the NCF / KCF 2022 new curriculum which will provide holistic education to the students created based on the policy. Against this backdrop, the need to teach foundational skills to all students at the primary and secondary levels, given high priority in the new Education Policy 2020, is more relevant than ever. Therefore, there is a need to integrate learning outcomes related to basic literacy and numeracy along with current grade specific learning outcomes in all grades (1 to 9).

The educational policy recommends reducing the curriculum content in each subject in each class by limiting the content of the curriculum to its most important points (fragmented). In order to facilitate the acquisition of skills and knowledge that should have been acquired in the previous class, including the key learning abilities of the previous classes and the key learning abilities of the current class (Chyodie Chyothien Chithithi) as well as learning outcomes related to basic literacy and numeracy, prepare learning materials for the year 2022-2023 with revised learning outcomes for the year 2022-2023. Recovery is to be achieved. In this regard, the “Learning Recovery” initiative has been implemented in the academic year 2022 – 2023.

The NEP 2020 recommends adopting a competency-based assessment method that tests the achievement of core competencies and higher-level skills to promote learning and growth in children instead of the traditional method of testing summative and rote skills to reduce the gap in achievement of learning outcomes. In this context, it is appropriate to implement assessment for learning (assessmetina geodtechiditig) and assessment as learning (chessessmetina chis techidititg) strategies by applying specific learning outcomes class wise and subject wise. As there are different levels of learning loss among students, it is necessary to recognize the learning needs of each student and conduct classroom interaction accordingly, to meet the diversity of learning levels and to adopt an innovative, specialized educational process where children work independently or in groups according to their learning level under the guidance of the teacher.

Preparation of integrated learning materials covering all the above aspects mentioned in the NEP 2020 recommendation and implementing them in the academic year 2022-2023 will help in bridging the gap in children's learning in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. In this context, there is a need to coordinate assessment with the teaching-learning process and maintain a record of assessment elements. Therefore, a teacher's manual has been prepared containing geodesy practice sheets and necessary guidelines for their implementation to facilitate the management of student's personal workbook.

Objectives of the Learning Recovery Initiative:
  • Development of basic literacy and numeracy skills as per the National Education Policy-2020.
  • By declaring the academic year 2022-23 as a learning recovery year, ensure implementation of a guided uniform educational process across the state.
  • Ensuring student engagement in the learning process and focus on emotional needs of all students.
  • Ensure that all students achieve basic literacy, numeracy and essential learning outcomes of the previous two grades and the essential learning outcomes of the current grade.
  • Equipping every student to achieve grade-level learning outcomes by the beginning of the academic year 2023-24.

  • Providing Learning experiences for students of classes 1 to 9
  • Preparation of subject-wise class-wise kalika chetharike materials and teacher handbooks for the period June 2022 to March 2023 in Kannada, English, Urdu, Marathi, Tamil, and Telugu mediums

Design of Kalika Chetharike :

The physical closure of schools has resulted in the loss of learning that is a sum of the curricular learning that would have happened if schools were open and what children have forgotten due to the disconnect from learning. Considering the learning gap created, learning materials have been prepared for the year 2022-2023 with revised learning outcomes including the core competencies of the previous two classes and the core competencies of the current class and learning outcomes related to basic literacy and numeracy.

  • Self-learning activities are planned to help students progress at their own pace that can be carried out using local resources.
  • Considering key learning competencies in the respective unit, activities are planned.
  • Activity sheets, learning outcome based activity bank which are available on DSERT website and other available resources may be used for reference while prescribing activities / assessment activities.
  • The activities indicated in the learning materials are advisory and allow the teacher to design activities according to the classroom situation and the learning level of the student.
  • Learning materials are prepared class wise and subject wise as per the learning techniques of assessment for learning and assessment as learning.
  • Prepared visit formats for field officers exclusively to monitor implementation of kalika chetharike initiative.
  • A specific app will be prepared for teachers and officers working in the field to implement the initiative to ensure that children have achieved the grade appropriate learning outcomes, and guidance will be given on its use.
  • Prepared teacher's manuals on implementation of kalika chetharike initiative in model schools, aided schools, unaided schools and single teacher schools in the state.
  • Government school and aided school teachers in the state have been trained on implementing kalika chetharike initiatives in classrooms.
  • A separate course on kalika chetharike initiative to facilitate learning outcomes in various subjects has been introduced on Deeksha Portal.

Realignment of Learning Outcomes:

For each grade, there are clearly defined learning outcomes (LOs) for all subjects. In the wake of the prolonged school closures, the learning levels of the students might be at one or two grades lower than their current grade. Therefore, one has the difficult task of starting from the current learning level of students and striving hard to arrive at the current grade-level expectations in terms of LOs. Therefore, kalika chetharike aims at reaching the expected level of learning by acquiring basic literacy and numeracy skills and the essential skills they should have acquired in the previous two years and the current academic year. In this context, the learning outcomes for the current year have been revised to bridge the learning gap that has already been created in two years. Learning materials are prepared for each class based on the essential learning outcomes of the previous two years, the essential learning outcomes of the current grade and the learning outcomes related to basic literacy and numeracy skills. The list of realigned grade wise and subject wise learning outcomes is described in detail in Facilitator's Manual.

Materials prepared

Teacher’s handbook

The main objective to have a teacher manual is for teachers to understand and plan their lessons to cover the identified LOs. This has been done for all subjects across the grades. An overall idea of using this handbook is provided to the teachers as a note at the beginning. It explains the approach of the handbook and the way the subject is to be facilitated and assessed.

"Kalika Chetarike" programme Syllabus Map - in a glance provides the entire syllabus mapped out over the year for Kalika Chetarike which helps the teacher plan her activities accordingly.

Teacher handbook contains pedagogical approaches to teach specific content for meeting learning outcomes. This also includes relevant TLMs. Each activity in the student workbook may be taught using the corresponding steps in the manual. Hence the activity number and corresponding teacher instruction match. Assessment activities are marked and rubrics for assessments are mentioned. This is usually the last activity of each LO in the student handbook. Connections to the current grade textbook are made and mentioned in the teacher handbook for each LO. The pedagogy and approach are suggestive not necessarily prescriptive.

Student Learning sheets

The learning sheets for students have been prepared as grade-wise and subject-wise learning sheets for grades 1 to 9. The content presentation Learning sheets have discussion questions at the end. Teachers can pose these questions and some others. The discussion questions would help children recapitulate what is taught in a topic. It would also help the teacher in observing students’ understanding. Visual content has been included with the text to support learning. There are illustrations, examples and maps given wherever possible. It is important to engage children with this as much as possible. Teachers are expected to use visual materials as far as possible while teaching- wall maps, globes, atlas, pictures. Examples may be given from the child’s context to reinforce understanding of concepts. There are practice learning sheets included after teaching of content. The Learning sheets include activities for learning and revising. Some Learning sheets will serve as assessment learning sheets. Assessment worksheet numbers for each LO are indicated in the following pages. Since the workbook has perforated sheets, the assessment learning sheets may be pulled out and maintained in the child’s portfolio. Assessment would require teachers to observe participation of child in activities and discussions and the completion of Learning sheets without copying.

Rainbow Literature:
Malebillu (Rainbow) program was prepared with child-friendly activities to celebrate the reopening of the school as a festival. To make children to adjust to the school atmosphere and prepare them to kalika chetharike initiative, activities were provided for the first 15 days of the reopening of school and a guideline for teachers to implement it in the classroom is provided. It has been uploaded on DSERT website.

Guidelines for Pre-Preparatory Activities:
A 'Guideline of Pre-Preparatory Activities' has been issued containing suggestive activities to conduct academic assessment for students of classes 1 to 9 in languages, environmental studies, mathematics, science and social science subjects depending on the situation and discretion is with the teacher. It has been uploaded on DSERT website.

Assessment format in Kalika Chetharike initiative

During the Kalika Chetarike, the purpose of assessment should primarily be diagnostic and formative; it should be used to diagnose students’ learning levels and design appropriate classroom transaction plans. Such assessments should be primarily done in an informal way using Learning sheets, observations, activities and self-assessment, during the process of teaching. The outcomes of the assessment should be used to group learners as per their learning levels and needs. Detailed guidelines regarding evaluation is given separately.
