Mangaluru, Feb 05, 2015:  With 50 days left for the class 10 examination, the District Education officers and teachers are going for a multi-pronged approach to improve the performance of students in the district.

This will be the first examination for the students under the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation. The students also have a new syllabus, which is similar to the Central Board of Secondary Education standard.

The focus has been to raise the ranking of the district with respect to overall performance. The district — which is known for having good education standards — was ranked 29{+t}{+h}last year. It was ranked 26{+t}{+h}and 7{+t}{+h}respectively in 2013 and 2012 respectively.

As many as 36,752 students, including 1,352 in private, are writing the examination.

A compendium of questions has been prepared to help students score minimum marks. The schools in Puttur have been given booklets titled ‘Daarideepa’ for each subject prepared by ‘Mission 95+’ team (a team of subject teachers working for improving performance of average students). Similar booklets have been prepared in Sullia and Belthangady blocks too.

As many as 800 Mathematics and Science teachers have formed a Google group wherein information about questions that would help students’ preparation has been shared.

A Block Resource Coordinator said following the taluk-level preparatory examination, teachers have identified students whose performance have been below average. “We are now making these students to focus on questions that bring them marks to clear the paper.” Sullia Block Education Officer B.S. Kempalingappa said “the focus was on preparation than on the notes (of the subject).”

Public participation

In Puttur, department officials have tried to involve public representatives in their visits to houses of students. “This is a part of motivational exercise,” said Puttur Block Education Officer G.S. Shashidhar.

Deputy Director of Public Instruction Walter D’Mello said he has visited some of the schools and interacted with students in Bantwal block that has seen low results. These students have been provided with materials that help in improving their performance. “This year’s result will be far better than earlier years,” Mr. D’Mello said.
