Annual Status of Education Report (Rural) 2010 (Provisional)


  • Pratham Pratham


Since 2005, every year the ASER report presents estimates of enrollment and basic reading and arithmetic learning outcomes for every district in rural India. Every year the core set of questions regarding schooling status and basic learning levels remains the same. However a set of new questions is added for exploring different dimensions of schooling and learning in the elementary stage. ASER 2010 brings together elements from various previous ASERs. From 2009, questions on paid tuition, parents’ education, household and village characteristics are retained. In addition, this year ASER tests mothers on their numeracy skills. For the first time, ASER 2010 introduces questions on critical thinking for children in Std. 5 and above. These questions are based on simple mathematical operations that appear in Std. V textbooks.
