The third phase of “Project Utkarsh – a Quiz Based Learning System (Quiz Academy )” is kicked off, which is an initiative by Udaipur district collector Ashutosh AT Pedhnekar in association with by Moinee Foundation, Jaipur and Department of Education, Udaipur, to improve the quality of education in government schools. As part of the initiation, online re-assessment of over 200 students was conducted at the Pacific University campus. First assessment of these students was conducted on 1st March as part of phase-1.
The second phase of Project Utkarsh, comprises of implementing the use of ‘Quiz Academy’ portal and tablet/PC app in the 12 selected schools. All 12 schools, fully revived their computer Labs and created Smart-Class setup through QuizAcademy. Daily 2-3 hrs practice was done by students covering 6 subjects. Apart from teaching as smart class, students were able to play quizzes on their tablets and laptops at home to do additional practice.
All students were also given weekly practice assignments online. There was a very good participation by students especially from tribal area schools like Khakhad, Kaalibhint etc, in-spite of limited number of PCs and poor connectivity. Feedback for the project Utkarsh has been very positive from students and teachers, which are shared regularly on Facebook page of the project. (https://www.facebook.com/projectutkarsh)
