Sikshana's work in Primary schools is focused on ensuring that the students will acquire the necessary reading and arithmetic skills before they enter High School. One quantitative measure for this is the ASER report developed by Pratham, India (www.asercentre.org) , which defines minimum reading skill in mother tongue for Std 7 as ability to read Std 2 level text. Similarly for arithmetic the ability to divide a 3 digit number by single digit number is the expected minimum. For the year 2013-14 the Karnataka ASER state rural average is 38% in Arithmetic and 64% in Kannada for Std 7. With a target of 95% our work has resulted in almost 90% of the students in various blocks in Karnataka acquiring the necessary skills. The assessment data collected from 741 higher primary schools under Sikshana intervention is shown below:
