In the first and largest-ever assessment survey, conducted by the School Education Department to evaluate the health of the education system in government and government- aided schools in the state, more than 16 lakh students of classes VI to XII appeared in the Google quiz test on Monday.

Though the test, first step of Punjab Achievement Survey (PAS)-November, 2021, was to start at 6 am and conclude at 8 pm, but due to heavy rush of students the time limit has been extended till 8 pm Tuesday.

The online quiz targets to assess the learning outcome of students. While students of classes VI to X are giving their test in six subjects — Punjabi, Hindi, English, social study, science and mathematics, the Class XI and XII students are answering the objective-type questions in their five elected subjects.

The first step of this PAS is the Google quiz and there will be three more quizzes in the coming months. The first mock test is expected in September, followed by second in October and last in November, authorities in the department said.

There is no separate syllabus for the quiz. It is based on the subject syllabus already being studied by the students online.

The mentors of all districts have already trained the teachers regarding the survey and the latter are informing the children about it and motivating them to participate in the test.

A senior functionary of the department said: "We have the target of 100 per cent participation of students and this is why the timeline for the test has been extended by 24 hours." About 14.27 lakh students of government schools and 1.86 lakh students of aided schools are to participate in the test.
