The National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA) has created a comprehensive online database to enhance performance monitoring of primary and upper primary schools across 640 districts of the country under the project known as District Information System for Education (DISE). The project, known as School Report Cards, presents quantitative and qualitative information on 1.3 million schools from 2005 onwards till date at the village, block, district, state and national level; and can be viewed at www.schoolreportscard.in.
Extensive data is collected at the village level, and then through the help of automated software, is aggregated at the state and national level. Data is collected in a uniform Data Capture Format (DCFs) and entered into the DISE for analysis, monitoring and implementing universalising of elementary education at the policy level.
Data validation of all reports is conducted to ensure credibility, and finally it is published on the 30th September of every year by the NUEPA and can be viewed online. These reports have been utilised to identify the gaps existing in the current education system and also used for monitoring Sarva Shikshya Abhayan (SSA)-programme facilitating universalisation of elementary education in all districts. Data on enrolment of students, teachers’ attendance and examination results of both boys and girls in both rural and urban regions is helpful in tracking the progress of educational development without delaying it further. It is also utilised in formulation of policies.
