The school education department would be introducing monthly test monitoring system to create central repository of monthly tests for all classes and subjects in all government schools and generate analytical reports, Haryana education minister Ram Bilas Sharma said on Wednesday.
Referring to the information technology (IT) initiatives taken by the department to further improve its efficiency, Sharma said that academic inspection monitoring system was also being adopted to create central repository of school inspections carried out by different inspecting officials. The objective of the system was to conduct academic inspection of every school at least once a year and ensure that every inspecting officer visits the minimum prescribed number of schools every month for inspection and submits inspection report online.
He said that other such initiatives included court cases monitoring system. The vision of “parivartan’’ scheme was to orient the system towards academic quality, transparency, accountability by creating robust and integrated and automating backend processes and to transform the department into digitally empowered organization.
It would enable the teachers to lay more focus on academic activities. It would also streamline the department’s administrative processes like student admissions, scholarship distribution, printing of text books, redistribution of posts, transfers of teacher through automation, he said and added that a unique identity number would be allotted to each student and Aadhaar integration of all students and teachers and bank accounts of students for direct benefit transfer would be done.
Stating that data of more than 22 lakh students had been digitized, he said that there was a target to make data of more than 26 lakh students, more than 1 lakh employees and 14,570 schools online.
