The Department of School Education in Chandigarh, Haryana took the first initiative towards skill development of students studying in government schools. The state is going to conduct quiz programs in 4500 schools on Saturday. There are 22 lakh students in 4,500 schools.
The quiz will be in Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC) style for students from class III to class X by the school education department. Out of 14,000 government schools, only 4,500 schools were given instructions to conduct this weekly question and answer type quiz in KBC-style. The schools which had facilities of computer and projectors with the help of teachers to run it manually were instructed to conduct the quiz.
Chandigarh school education department also launched the quiz bank named Training Module for Quiz Club. The question bank has over 10,000 questions based on General Awareness, History, Culture and questions which help to increase logical reasoning of the students.
P K Das, Chief Secretary of School Education said, the question bank is prepared based on the syllabus of different classes. He also added the question bank is also made available in DVD form for teachers to download it from department website.
Das said the quiz bank is prepared with the assistance of various professional agencies. Haryana is the first state to introduce Skill Passbook in schools where teachers mark the skills acquired by each student in his/her class in subjects he/she teaches. This marking is based on the observation of students by teachers to improve the quality of education.
After the completion of the school-level quiz, the quiz is held for block and district level and later for State-level which would be held as a part of golden jubilee year celebrations on November 1.
