  • ASER - The Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) is a survey of the quality of education. ASER seeks to fill a gap in educational data by looking to provide a reliable set of data at the national level, that is comprehensive and, at the same time, easy to understand. The survey’s stated objectives are three fold:
    • To get reliable estimates of the status of children’s schooling and basic learning (reading and arithmetic level)     
    • To measure the change in these basic learning and school statistics from last year
    • To interpret these results and use them to affect policy decisions at various levels.
