National Council of Educational Research and Training, in 2017, developed the Learning Outcomes for the elementary stage addressing the concerns of Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE), 2009 on the learning levels of children. NCERT had also initiated discussions with various stakeholders, as well as the capacity building of teachers. As a follow up of this, the states and UTs had taken an initiative to disseminate learning outcomes in their schools. It is in this context, that the demand for learning outcomes for the secondary stage from the different school education boards, SCERTs, etc. increased.
Addressing this demand, the NCERT has developed the Learning Outcomes for the Secondary Stage in all subject areas in school education. The challenge of content domination in the learning outcomes has been minimised in consultation with experts, teacher educators and teachers, and has been made in such a way that every state/UT can use these irrespective of their state’s syllabi and textbooks. Moreover, care has also been taken to provide pedagogic processes that match the learning needs of adolescents.
